From Our Founders
Can you believe that holiday preparations are just around the corner? It’s incredible how quickly this time of year comes upon us. As we all know, these annual celebrations come with a multitude of tasks and plans, often falling on the shoulders of the women in our families.
Time management is a precious commodity, one that is essential for juggling our various responsibilities and ensuring that everything runs smoothly. With a limited supply of hours, countless demands on our time, distractions, procrastination, shifting priorities, and a lack of planning, it’s easy for our precious minutes to slip away. Just like this season, our daily lives require conscious effort and discipline to make the most of this valuable resource.
Despite being overwhelmed with responsibilities, we believe it’s important to make time to give back. December is the perfect time for us to come together and seize opportunities to make a positive impact, whether through our actions, donations, or heartfelt gestures.
With that said, we are excited to announce the return of our donor program, the Circle of Friends. Your generous investment sustains our ability to operate. Friends of Lotus Network helps make possible the programming, website content, and educational resources that enrich lives across the country and around the world. Your gift supports our mission to provide women with opportunities for meaningful connections, personal growth, and purposeful living through social and educational resources. Click HERE to donate.
In December, we have a special and timely treat for you. In partnership with the nonprofit Spill the Honey, we are offering our community an opportunity to watch an incredible documentary called Shared Legacies, produced by Shari Rogers. This thought-provoking film explores the relationship between African Americans and Jews during the civil rights movement in America, serving as a powerful example of promoting empathy in action. The film will only be available for 48 hours beginning December 4th. Then, we hope you will join us for the Timely Topic session on December 6th, where we will host a panel discussion about the film and its impact. You can register HERE.
Let’s make the most of this holiday season by choosing wisely how we spend our time, how we support one another, and how we give back. Together, we can find common ground and make meaningful impacts in our community.
