Recently we were nominated for The Versatile Blogger Award and before we complete the challenge and pass the torch to other writers, we would like to take the time to thank both Joan Senio and Parenting In Real Life for nominating us.

Some of you may be wondering what is a Versatile Blogger Award and How do I get one?

According to VBA, The Versatile Blogger Award is the best of the ‘chain letter’ awards out there in the blogosphere and you get this award by simply being an amazing blog and someone nominates you!

One of the stipulations about this award is you must share SEVEN fun facts about you or your blog. Since we are a nonprofit organization, we will share facts about the organization and not about the founder.

Here’s 7 amazing facts about Women With Gifts Intl:

 1)When we first started the organization, we were mandated by the State of Texas to change our name twice, once from Women With Gifts: Growing Roses From A Briefcase because that name was deemed to be too long and the second time because they didn’t want Women With Gifts to get associated with similar organizations. Hence the name Women With Gifts International was born.

2) A lot of people don’t know this but, the organization was actually a blog before becoming an organization. The blog started with LaNette {The Founder} after regaining her ability to read and write based on an illness and used writing as a way to return back to the things she loved-which was writing.

3) Throughout the life of organization, we have been completed the following missions:

I Survived Gospel Concert
The Founder {LaNette} hugging a domestic violence survivor
I Survived Gospel Concert
Survivors of Breast Cancer, domesic violence and sexual abuse
Hat & Heels Fundraiser for Single Mothers
Hat & Heels Fundraiser for Single Mothers: Makeup artist that provided our single mothers a makeover at our recent fundraiser
  • Coat & Blanket Drives
  • Going to nursing homes on Mother’s Day to give blankets to all women
  • Hosting initiatives to bring awareness to Breast Cancer| Domestic Violence| Sexual Abuse . The Founder is a survivor or both domestic violence and sexual abuse and the President of the organization is a Breast Cancer Survivor
  • Hosting “Hat & Heels Fundraisers” for Single Mothers
  • Concert 4 Coats {providing coats for mothers and children}
  • We also use both our platforms both website and new TV channel to promote and inspire women

    Our Founder {LaNette}
    Our Founder {LaNette} Hosting our weekly TV episodes via Periscope

4) One of our goals with the organization in the near future is to start or create the following missions

  • Two-week summer camp for teen girls that teaches leadership and readiness for college
  • Program for women that focuses on recovering addicts and homeless women that would teach simple skills such as interview and job readiness.
  • At some point we would like to incorporate assistance for men as in a JOINT initiative
  • We would love to have a radio station and television network one day, similar to TBN or Daystar

5) One of our upcoming events is called the Women Are Roses Award Ceremony and it’s an event where we are celebrating women, honoring women that comes from different walks of life and different experiences. This event is taking place in June 1,2019 in Colorado. Details are HERE.

6) Women With Gifts is an organization FOR WOMEN! People have always asked why we serve a community of just women. We honestly help women and children but yes at the moment our program was created for just women. Our currently motto is, “we are changing the world one woman at a time.”

 7) A lot of people don’t know this but our original logo was created to showcase women helping women and the colors of our logo is in support of breast cancer {pink}, sexual abuse {teal}, and domestic violence {purple}-things that WOMEN mostly experience.
