What is the goal of Live Your Dream.org?
Live Your Dream.org inspires people from all walks of life to live their dreams, while helping less fortunate women and girls to live theirs. This is accomplished through hands-on opportunities, awareness and advocacy efforts, and financial support—or any combination of these strategies. You determine your level of engagement. In addition, Live Your Dream.org offers information and inspiration to help you live your dream life.
How can I get involved?
Live Your Dream is predicated on the idea that there is strength in numbers, and that collectively we have the power to help other women and girls to live their dreams. Throughout history, and in every country throughout the world, women and girls face obstacles and discrimination solely because of their gender.
Live Your Dream.org offers several ways you can help women and girls. Options include helping a woman who is trying to go back to school. Or passing out teen dating violence or sex trafficking information. Another choice is to learn more about issues facing women and girls, and then advocate to improve conditions. It might be as simple as joining the discussion on our Facebook page. Your involvement depends on where your passions lie, and how our opportunities fit your schedule. The project choices offered through Live Your Dream.org are Soroptimist programs. Live Your Dreamers help extend the impact and reach of these programs to benefit more women and girls.
What are the time and financial requirements?
There are absolutely no time or financial requirements to join Live Your Dream.org. The choice about how involved you want to be is up solely up to YOU. We are here to encourage you to make a difference in any way you can. There is no cost to join the community. Some of the opportunities to become involved do suggest distributing materials, which are available for purchase. General donations, which are strictly voluntary, can be made to help support the effort.
Are there any age or other restrictions?
No. Anyone—male or female—can join Live Your Dream. If you are under 18, please check with your parents first. The only requirement is a desire to support women and girls in their efforts to live their dreams.
