This month, we’re focusing on all the wonderful ways women can, and do, give back every day. To prove that everyone and anyone has time to do lend a helping hand, we’ve tapped some of the busiest, most successful women we know to find out how they give back, in the hopes they’ll inspire us all to find creative ways to do good.
Founder, Mia Bossi Diaper Bags
The organization I work with: I am involved and work with several organizations around the Chicago area, but I have been working with the Free Wheelchair Mission for some time now and love giving back to this cause.
How I’m involved: My sister in law is on the board of the Free Wheelchair Mission, so it is nice for us to both be passionate for the same organization.
Why I’m passionate about this cause: The Free Wheelchair Mission provides wheelchairs, at no costs, for those with disabilities living in developing nations, and cannot afford wheelchairs. The funds generated by this mission also manufacture and create sustainable wheelchairs out of recycled bicycle wheels. How amazing is that????
Why it’s so important to give back: There is never a specific time to give. Giving back should always be in the forefront of people’s minds. If you cannot give monetarily, devote your time! I love devoting my time and support my sister-in-law at events.
