Offer: Opportunity to help women globally who endeavor to improve the quality of their lives and the lives of their children...Supporting Children's Connection to Spirit & Each Other Globally

Ngobe Indigenous Women of Bastimentos who are one of the communities involved in the doll project

Host a SoulSong Gathering: Make a Difference While Having Fun
How can you help improve the quality of women’s lives & the lives of their children?

“A child raised with spiritual skills will be able to answer the most basic questions about how the universe works. They will understand the source of creativity both within and outside themselves. They will be able to practice non-judgment, acceptance and truth….And they will be free from crippling fear and anxiety about the meaning of life that is the secret dry rot inside the hearts of most adults.” Deepak Chopra

We invite you to help spread the vision of SoulSong Enterprises by hosting a SoulSong gathering at your home, church, school, office or in your community. The purpose of the gathering is to share the stories of the women who lovingly handcraft 'Special Companion,Guardian Angels Dolls" that are a physical reminder of Spirit, to sell their handcrafted dolls woman to woman, child to child in a supportive environment where all proceeds reach the women and their families, to support children's connection to the spiritual realm.

Sales of these dolls support the women's cottage industry.These dolls are perfect to purchase as a gift or as a donation to a worthy cause and complement the multilingual children's book My Guardian Angel that supports the child's connection to Spirit and each other globally. 100% of the proceeds from doll sales and 10% of book sales go back to support these women and their communities. SoulSong's website gives more information on the Gatherings page at www.soulsong.org. You can also check out the communities of women involved in the doll project. By the way dolls have been used by women for centuries to raise money for charities while sharing a symbol that represents compassion, nurturing and love. SoulSong's "Special Companion, Guardian Angel Dolls" also represent Spirit.

“People can change their own lives, provided they have the right kind of institutional support. They're not asking for charity, charity is no solution to poverty. Poverty can be overcome by the creation of opportunities like everybody else has…so that they can change their lives." ~ Muhammad Yunus, 2006 Nobel Peace Prize Winner~

Your offer to host a SoulSong Gatherings helps us help others!
