In honor of International Women’s Day, Momentum is hosting BoldeReach - a local non-profit run by a diverse group of women, who came together in 2003, to improve the health, education, economic stability, safety and social equality of women and children in extreme need around the world. Instead of creating a new relief organization, BoldeReach decided to seek out existing programs and organizations that are already making a positive impact and to raise funds for them.

Each year, BoldeReach selects a cause and a specific organization to support; this year's cause is displaced children and orphans and the selected organization is Global Education Fund. This Boulder based non-profit’s mission is to improve the lives of orphans and vulnerable children around the world through education.

To date, BoldeReach has raised over $400,000 for such international issues as girls’ education in Afghanistan, programs to prevent child trafficking, clean water and sanitation, microcredit and grants to help women’s rights activists. You are invited to come learn more about this inspiring non-profit.

February Event

Irma Rodriguez, from the Denver-based Ladies’ Sewing Circle, spent Valentine’s Day at Momentum creating her lavender sachets. During this special V-Day event, customers placed secret love messages inside the sachets. The highlight of the day, for the Momentum staff, was witnessing eager children compose Valentine notes to their parents.
