One Click Can Help

The holiday bustle will soon be upon us, if it has not knocked on our door already. Amongst the commercialism and stress, there is a way you can make a difference in someone else's life without leaving your house or piling on more unwanted stress. Your vote for the Women Like Us Documentary could make an overwhelming difference in someone's life. Your vote could be the contributing factor that grants WLUF the funding necessary to promote the documentary. Though it may not seem important, in order to continually help the women and children in our various programs, our documentary needs to reach the caring hearts of people across the nation. Our foundation is founded on the hearts and hard work of our supporters and volunteers like you. With women like us, and everyone else, we can change the world.

Kenya, Nancy Noel, and Fox59 News

What could three seemingly unrelated topics like Kenya, famous international artist Nancy Noel, and a major news broadcasting program possibly have in common? Women Like Us. In case you do not know about this particular facet of Women Like Us, we passionately support the NA Noel Pre-School in Kenya. Famous artist Nancy Noel from our very own Noblesville, Indiana started this school after one of her trips to Africa in search for artistic inspiration. Instead, she found inspiration to change the lives of those who so desperately needed a safe, comfortable place to receive an education. If you would like to find out more information about how this all started and how Women Like Us has helped in the past check out our website here: https://www.womenlikeusfoundation.org/nanoel/#sthash.Y2QZXb64.dpbs

You can still travel with us.

This summer Women Like Us will be traveling yet again to Kenya! A group of passionate Women Like Us supporters, along with our International Spokesperson Catt Sadler from E!News and our CEO Linda Rendleman, will be traveling to the beautiful country to volunteer with Nancy Noel, visit other women-led causes, and explore the plains of Africa for 12 days. More information can be found here: https://www.womenlikeusfoundation.org/trips.cfm?ID=5#sthash.9qc3kUG9.dpbs

How does FOX59 News fit into this ensemble of women led humanitarianism? For their PayItForward segment, Women Like Us and Nancy Noel will be featured on the morning of February 24, 2014. That is tomorrow! If you have a busy schedule like the rest of us, do not worry! You will have three opportunities to catch the segment. Be sure to tune in around 5:45 am, 8:15 am, or 9:50 am to see the great humanitarian work of Nancy Noel and how Women Like Us will be helping come this summer.

I leave you with this quote from our very own Nancy Noel, "Love", we truly believe, "is the only thing that changes things".

Update from Africa

This past month, a donation from CAbi Clothing for $1139! We hosted a CAbi Clothing party at the Sanctuary on March 14th, and had 30 guests in attendance. What a win-win evening, everyone got great clothing, and the school raised much needed funds. A bank wire of $1000 was sent by WLUF on May 15th. The money will be used for the general needs at the school. Starting in June, Mallory Getty, will be working for us as an intern which we are very excited about. We are still trying to get 230 mosquito nets to the school. The IU/Kenya program was assisting in getting the nets to Eldoret, Kenya; however, due to unrest in the area, volunteers have not been traveling to that region.We are always in need of funds to assist the school with their food program, school supplies, etc. Please refer to the ‘wish list’ on our website, www.nanoel.com.
