Are You Ready to Tell Your Story?


So very many of the women we meet are struggling to recover from abuse many cannot even imagine.  

We have begun a Not for Profit organization called Women Up International.  We bring women leaders together to provide a strong support system for women who choose to heal and thrive.  Smashfunds is an innovative way to facilitate the funds we need so we can assist them to rise above their pain and live productive lives..​

Smashfunds is amazing.  It took us a bit to catch the concept but the power behind the concept is incredible.  You do not have any money to donate to women rising out of victimhood?  Simply sign up for a FREE account with NO obligations, and we get paid $1.00 a month even if you do not donate!

We are using Smashfunds to fund our "We Choose to Thrive"​ book series (now in progress is book #2 of the series).  We also know the powerful benefits that you can derive from using Smashfunds to assist in your own projects that need funds.
