Behold.Her Self Worth Conference
Did you know over 80% of the CollabCreate community is made up of women? Ladies, are you tired of seeing firsthand how hard it is for women-owned businesses to get funding? We are, too. So, we're throwing out a #wcw challenge today (to everyone, not just women!) to help change that right here in our community.
We'll cut to the chase: our fave DC girl gang, @_behold.her is in the middle of their crowdfunding campaign to support a Self-Worth Conference later this year. We don't usually ask for your money. But we believe really strongly in what's happening with this amazing event, and we KNOW that y'all can help make it happen.
You'd pay $5 to have your morning coffee/matcha/smoothie with a friend, right? Well, we're asking you to give $5 today to the Behold.Her campaign in honor of that friend. Tag someone below (or multiple someones!) when you've made your donation, and you'll get a shout-out on our Stories this week, along with the warm fuzzy feeling knowing that you directly helped make this conference dream a reality.
For those unfamiliar with Behold.Her, it started out as portrait + conversation events where women (mostly strangers at first) would gather in small groups to discuss some pretty sensitive topics. And it grew into a community of friends and amazing women who gather together now for podcast events, happy hours, and (with your help) an end-of-year conference.
Founder @leahbeilhart envisions this Self-Worth Conference to be above and beyond what you think of when you hear the word "conference"... scholarships, on-site babysitting, ASL interpreters, full accessibility, food for every diet. And, most importantly, interactive workshop sessions led by the matriarchs of our community covering topics on Self-Love and Body Image; Sex & Consent, Money & Guilt, and Community & Relationship Building.
With just two weeks left to reach their $15K goal, every bit helps! Go to the @_behold.her link in bio to learn more about the campaign. And be sure to check out the awesome video where Behold.Her ladies (full disclosure: myself included) share what makes this community so amazing. Let's do this!
