Mother's Day is May 11
In honor of the women around the world who have given hope to so many of us, Opportunity International is building an online tribute to celebrate influential women. Our Global Opportunity Quilt is a great way to thank the women who have inspired and influenced you – including the moms who are on your Mother’s Day gift list.
Scroll through this powerpoint to see how easy it is to create patches on our 5th Annual Global Opportunity Quilt. In just a few simple steps, you can pick from one of our predesigned patches or use your own photos and dedicate your patch to a special woman with a short message. After adding it to the virtual quilt, you can share your tribute on social media or, with a donation of any size, request that a special e-card be emailed to your mom.
About the Global Opportunity Quilt
Despite living in the most challenging conditions, Opportunity’s clients are positive, resilient and determined to work their way out of poverty. They do not lack intelligence or ideas. They don’t lack determination or a strong work ethic. What they lack is opportunity. Opportunity International provides women in the developing world with financial services and training, equipping them to work their way out of poverty and giving them the opportunities they need to succeed. With your support, we can empower more and more women to send their children to school, build safe and secure homes, create jobs for their neighbors and transform their communities.
The Global Opportunity Quilt was created in 2010 by the Women's Opportunity Network, a group of Opportunity International donors committed to empowering women in the developing world to break free from the cycle of poverty and enter a sustainable cycle of success. Our determined and unstoppable female clients and the loyal community of individuals supporting them are the inspiration behind the quilt. It serves as a tribute to the women around the world who have inspired us. And it is a vehicle through which Opportunity International can help more determined women around the world build their businesses, create jobs, support their families and transform their communities.
We invite you to add your voice to the Quilt. Together, lets create a tribute to the women around the world who have inspired and given hope to so many of us. Visit opportunity.org/thankyoumom to get started.
