Normally I don’t divulge about who I’m copywriting and freelancing for, but I was asked to share this by one client.
I’ve been working for the past few months with a great nonprofit, All About Women (AAW).
From the site:
All About Women, Inc. (AAW) is a non-profit (501c3) organization, created to remove barriers that prevent women from taking care of themselves. Time, resources, language, geography, education, fear and other challenges were identified in the Status of Women Report that ranked women in Tennessee 49th in the country based on health, education, economics and political participation.. Since 2003, AAW has offered the “One Day, One Place” FREE events across Tennessee.
While “health” is the focus of All About Women, we define it broadly to include fitness, nutrition, wellness, beauty, mental health, education, career, family issues, legal, spiritual, safety, financial, etc. AAW markets to all women ages 18-64 with a special focus on underserved women making $40,000 or less.
The goal of the AAW web site is to partner with women 24/7 and help them adopt healthier lifestyle behaviors. Our strategies include an ongoing story line with trademarked characters Lily and Z, interactive activities, Q & A with experts, forums and a personal journal for each participating woman.
Everything in this organization is volunteer built and driven, from the content writers to the illustrators to the web development and design. (I’m paid out of a grant specifically for bringing all these disparate pieces together) It’s a great program and we’re currently just beginning to build the community. I’ve written about the creative and mental benefits of volunteering before and this is a great, easy, and free way to connect with other women on issues ranging from time management to hormones to sleep to how to make a living will.
Thank you for your support! If you’d be interested in volunteering for AAW, check out their needs here.
