In the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey, I was so broken and empty with what I witnessed in my city of Houston, TX. It brought back so many feelings I had experienced through out my life. Experiences of anger, hurt, helplessness; but, it also showed me who I was: A woman of strength and resilience. I reached out to three women, 2 of whom had lost property, all of us experienced similar feelings; and, asked them to join me for dinner. The four of us celebrated each other and vowed to support each other and our city. Supper Sips and Sistership grew into seven, "The Magnificat 7" and our Founding Sisters.
We begin inviting other women and every dinner was a celebration of each other and we donated to an organization that services women. In our first year we donated over $7,000 to local charities to support programs to assist women. Today we have sown approximately $45,000 into the enrichment and empowerment of women.
It was at a dinner one night, I looked around the table and realized just how blessed I was. I was surrounded by some very strong and influential women; and, I wanted to share that with the world.
I wanted my sisters to experience what I experienced at that table. In that instant we breathed life into the Secrets of the Sistership. Supper Sips and Sistership, while not quite as formal as it was, still exists; but as a whole we are the Sistership. The Sistership is a social network with a social conscious.
Any woman or girl can be a part of the Sistership. We welcome you to the Sistership Circle.
