Society B is proud to announce that we have a new giving partner! First, a little backstory...For the last few years, I’ve had an unsettling feeling as the Syrian refugee crisis continues to unfold. Refugees are the world's most vulnerable population. Millions of people (mostly women and children) are fleeing their homes and abandoning their lives to seek safety amidst violence and hardships that we can't begin to imagine. And in Syria, the reasons for the conflict and the resolutions to fix the causes are complicated (to over-simplify it) and impossible so far.
This month, we’re featuring a very special charity called Together Rising. It was founded by Glennon Melton Doyle—the brains, wit, and heart behind the popular mom blog, Momastery. Together Rising has demonstrated the power of giving by asking its community of fellow moms to help lift women in need. “We do something called a Love Flash Mob."
Whenever we have a featured charity, we write weekly blog posts about that charity to share stories about the work they are doing. This month, however, we’re going to share stories directly from the founder of Together Rising, Glennon Doyle Melton of the popular blog Momastery. Frankly, she’s a great writer and author, and I wouldn’t do her work justice if I tried to summarize it. But I also don’t want to strip her voice—and her raw emotion—from the stories.
