I came to learn about Share in 2005
when I was approached to help produce
some clothing items through the printing
store that I owned at the time. I had no
idea that an organization like Share even
existed, I had two healthy children and had
never experienced any problems with my
I was very impressed with the work of
Share and when they signed on to sponsor
the American Girl Fashion Show, I volun-
teered my time on the fashion show committee, and was more than excited to help with creating the clothing for the models and also running the boutique for the shows. All three years I was able to help and be a part of that great fundraiser and was glad to offer the services of my business for such a worthwhile cause.
In 2008, I was honored by Share as an Official Business Partner for the years I assisted with the American Girl Fashion Show. At the reception when I received my award, I was proud to have helped and really felt appreciated by the staff.
This past year I also volunteered to be a co-chair for the Sharing Your Knowledge: Trivia Night fundraiser, which has always been such a fun event. This was the largest trivia fundraiser to date and I think that even greater things are ahead.
I am grateful to be a part of Share and even though I have been fortunate enough to never have needed the services that the organization provides, I have been able to spread awareness and let friends and family know about Share at their time of need. I have found that being educated is such a help to those that do not know such an organization exists. I will continue to spread the word about Share and will always be willing to volunteer for such a wonderful organization.
