is an extraordinary artist with an extraordinary vision.
She and her sister Kathy are the founders of
"We are on a wild and crazy mission to find all of the brave women of the world...to help them find each other...then to change the world with good news, good ideas, good people, and good times. "
Last September, I began an art class through her website which is winding down in January. It's been fabulous.
But in addition to art classes, retreats and other artistic endeavors, she invites us to join her in her latest Brave Girl project....
"We are calling on Brave Girls everywhere to come together on this extraordinary project of support, encouragement, and love for our brave sisters who have been rescued from human trafficking in Manila, Phillipines."
Melody will be traveling to Manila this January.
She will be helping these women in two critical ways:
1 – She will be teaching her SOUL RESTORATION curriculum to help them realize their value as human beings, their worth, and their potential to live happy and peaceful lives with their families. (Learn about Soul Restoration online course here.)
2 – She will train them with new skills to create beautiful hand-made things to sell so that they can support themselves and their families and never feel trapped again. In 2013 Full Circle Exchange will launch the “Melody Ross Collection” – a line of handmade eco-friendly greeting cards, journals and upcycled accessories that Melody designs and teaches our sisters to make….things that you will then be able to buy from major retail partners throughout the U.S.
Melody has called on Brave Girls around the world to help with this endeavor by making simple little cards of encouragement for these women.
She will take these little cards for the women...small but important reminders or "truths" that they are being thought of by women here. It's a wonderful project that you can read about here.
Take a few minutes and read about this initiative. This trip to Manila is the first of
several trips planned. Although this trip is already underway, there will be more chances to help out by creating simple cards that offer much needed encouragement in the future. The above link will give you all the information you need to stay in the loop and join Brave Girls everywhere in this endeavor.
