Over 100 of us were there to help celebrate AWFH's collective accomplishments in the past year. It gave me great pleasure to present this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eVezP7E_37c, and to hear the inspirational stories shared by our members and supporters.
Our keynote speaker, Pauline Alighieri, the Executive Director of Friend of Mel Foundation, one of the first donors to AWFH, pledged continued support with a $1,000 gift and also named AWFH the recipient of "Mel's Magic": Purchase bead bracelets during the month of June to benefit AWFH!
We have created a new community in which Asian women aspire to lead happy, healthy lives through peer education, advocacy and support. If you share the same vision, please join us in advancing our mission by volunteering and contributing to our common cause.
By practicing the "Daffodil Principle" every day - as long as we stay focused and persistent with acts small and large, we will make a big impact together.
