Joyful Inspiration is a charitable organization that provides help for the survivors of domestic abuse.
We put on a retreat for survivors of domestic violence every 4 months. These retreats provide a weekend of esteem building activities, educational presentations, self defense courses, an awesome lunch and a whole lot of fun to assist these ladies in moving ahead with their lives.
Although we provide this at no charge to the survivors, it comes in at cost to our organization of approximately $300.00 per attendee. Our response to these retreats has been wonderful and almost overwhelming. The good they do is easily measurable. Take the time to look at the testimonials and photos at our website (www.joyfulinspiration.org)
We are now seeking donations towards funding the retreat by means of sponsorship for individual survivors. It cost us approximately $300 per lady to put on the retreat. (Remember there is no charge to the survivors, volunteers are fed but uncompensated) We can serve around 20 survivors and 7-10 volunteers per retreat.
Reach into your heart and help sponsor one of these ladies. Full support of $300.00 will cover food lodging and activities for one survivor, but any amount will help.
We also welcome donations of gift cards to grocery stores or donations on the website to cover the cost of food and supplies. We also appreciate food, cakes cookies and supplies prior to the event weekends
They usually write a thank you to the donors with a testimonial of their experience and a little of their story. Several have started penpal relationships with sponsors.
We do follow-up with these ladies over the next several months and place them with a mentor. We realize we can’t heal years of hurt in a weekend, but we use it as a start to the journey of healing.
If you are a survivor, know one, or just know how tough it can be reach out donate and help these strong ladies on their path to healing and self sustainability.
