We hope that this page will have the feel of your favorite coffee or dessert spot, that semi-sacred place where you connect deeply with close friends. When you come here, we want it to feel that personal – like we’re all sitting around an old table together, laughing, telling stories and planning something beautiful with and for people that we love.
As you look around and check out these stories (since we’re brand new, there are just a few right now), we hope you’ll feel more than just inspired. We hope you’ll feel the strength and warmth of a community that helps you believe that your efforts are integral to helping bring new life to South Sudan.
Please remember this – none of us has this all figured out. We’re learning and trying together. Every person or group that you’ll meet on this page is exceptional and generous, not because of the amount of money that they’re contributing but because they’ve chosen to turn their caring into action and sharing. In the process, they tell us that something in them has shifted.
So please, read their stories. Then carefully consider how you can do your thing to help the women and girls of South Sudan rebuild their lives and communities. And then share your story so that we can add it here as encouragement to others in our community!

A month ago, the duo was asked...
