Buffy Beaudoin-Schwartz is the dynamo behind the Howard County Women's Giving Circle in Columbia, Maryland. She's also a Gen X'r and knows all about ways to approach women using the Internet. A couple of weeks ago the Circle celebrated its 9th birthday with a Power of the Purse celebration event. It was attended by over 200 women and they do know how to celebrate. I was fortunate to be the keynote speaker but the real focus was on what the Circle had accomplished in its nine years and the difference it has made in the community. Buffy has described all that was done to make this event a success and agreed to share it with everyone at:
The event featured purses created by local artists to represent the 6 C's + 3 of women's giving: Create, change, commit, connect, collaborate and celebrate plus control, confidence and courage.
