OPRIG ORGANIZATION "PAY IT FORWARD"
Savoir Faire Gift Basket Company
Ontario, Baskets, company
I truly believe in organizations such as Atzin that nurture women's self sufficiency, sense of self and community. I remember not too long ago, I too, was a woman with a dream, but I also needed to support my family of four. Widowed young, I will never forget the trials that I faced, hopelessness, desperation.... As women, especially single women, you would think that society would be there to help. Most times we are left to deal with conservative bankers and social workers that want us to put our dreams aside and get a real job. While it*s true, we sometimes have to put our dreams on hold, when we do want to start living our dreams there is no one there to help. We have no credit, no assets and no male counterparts. No one will give us a chance, nobody believes in us. How do we tell our children to follow your dreams? How do we say, you can do anything in life, you only have to believe? How? We need people to help. All it takes is that one person.
Now a successful business owner, I have never forgotten where I came from and what my kids and I went through.
This being said, I see this project as a way to *pay it forward* to help those women and families in need. I will take these beautiful baskets woven by these women and create gorgeous gift designs. That will be featured on our website.
