Brave Women and Chicks

Women so often have to be brave. But you don't have to go it alone.

Brave Women and Chicks

Women so often have to be brave. But you don’t have to go it alone.

Whether it is facing the death of a loved one or a child, or dealing with rejection in a career quest or problems at home, there are several online resources and centers to help you muster the courage to wake up the morning and face another day.

If you are going through a difficult time, or know someone who is, there’s a wonderful website called www.onebravechick.com. This dynamic trio of founding “brave chicks” wanted to celebrate all women and each of their unique stories; a company that would celebrate any woman, anywhere, who needed a shot in the arm of courage;— anyone who looked life in the eye, and said, “That’s all you got? Well I’m still here. I’m One Brave Chick.”

Another wonderful place is Peter’s Place at www.petersplaceonline.org. As a center with a supportive environment to help grieving children and families in Radnor, PA, this dynamic organization will have their autumn fundraising event called “An Affair of the Arts, to be held Saturday, October 24th at 7pm in the Northern Liberties at the Baltzell Design Center. Tickets range from $150 to $1,000. Founded in 2001 in memory of 10-year old Peter Mosbach, Peter’s Place provides a range of programs and services including providing peer support for grieving children, teens and their caregivers; peer support for young adults; and grief training and education for schools and health professionals.

The fundraiser will feature food, music and entertainment as guests bask in the creative works of top artists. You’ll feel good about being around the company of caring and loving individuals. You’re not alone. Check it out!
