The group is “Women of Bloomfield”, it started in the 1960’s as a Welcome Wagon for exactly that, the” Women of Bloomfield”, a city in SE Michigan. The group holds Art & Craft Shows, Rummage Sales, Silent Auctions and a yearly Raffle ticket sale.
Back in October we had the pleasure of working with some amazing women
A close friend and colleague of theirs discovered she has cancer. These amazing
women pulled together and came up with a great idea for an inspiration
bracelet. Over 50 women (and a few men!) in Michigan are currently sporting
LORA STRONG cuffs to show their solidarity and support for their amazing friend
Inspiration jewelry can be so powerful!
The group is “Women of Bloomfield”, it started in the 1960’s as a Welcome
Wagon for exactly that, the” Women of Bloomfield”, a city in SE Michigan. In
the 1980’s the group converted over to a non-profit organization, supporting
two children’s groups. The group holds Art & Craft Shows, Rummage Sales,
Silent Auctions and a yearly Raffle ticket sale. All profits go to supporting these
two charities. Every other month, their members make dinners and take and
serve the families of CARE House prior to their counseling sessions. Once a
summer we attend SCAMP and help with their cook out for the group.
One is “CARE House of Oakland County”, an advocate for the safety of Oakland
County children in the prevention of child abuse and neglect through education
and intervention. Second is “SCAMP”, who holds 5 week summer camps for
special needs children. They try each year to raise as much as possible to help, it
varies year to year depending on our success at their fund raising.
I love hearing stories about amazing people that do AMAZING things.
Thank you Women of Bloomfield, for putting your heart into something the way
you have for these children's groups! ❤
