The Anchal family spent time reflecting upon the many people and things we are grateful for this year in preparation for Thanksgiving.
We are incredibly grateful for YOU, our amazing supporters that help us create real change in the lives of women and families in India. We are continued to be amazed by your warm encouragement, volunteer hours, and generosity! We are especially grateful to you for helping share our mission with your friends and families. Whether you spoke of Anchal via social media or in conversation, word of mouth is the most powerful tool.
Because of you, Anchal now supports over 150 women! Incredible impact in the lives of Anchal artisans is being secured through each purchase, donation and positive word spread.
Our gratitude is most clear in the words of our team. Please read below to learn how thankful our team is for Anchal:
Colleen Clines - Co-Founder & CEO
"I am giving thanks this year for Anchal's passionate team around the globe that fight tirelessly for our mission and all of the compassionate supporters that make our work possible. It is truly amazing the impact we can have collectively and I am forever grateful for your belief in our work."
Maggie Clines - Creative Director
"I am thankful to be a part of the didi connection - a global sisterhood. Watching our network of supporters and sisters grow over the years is most inspiring. I love seeing daughters inspire their mothers, sisters join together, and grandmothers to great granddaughters support Anchal's mission. The power of the Anchal community is endless, and so is the impact."
Natalie Hugon - Marketing & PR Associate
"I am thankful for the opportunity to join such a powerful organization this year. The community of artisans and their dedication to their families and the program is truly inspiring. Anchal gives me hope for a better, more loving world."
Kelly Diaz - Operations & Brand Coordinator
I am thankful to be a part of the Anchal team - working to do good, empower women, and design change. When I feel like the problems of the world are too big and my impact is so small, I remember that there is a growing community of people who have been inspired to make positive changes - and actually do so - little by little everyday.
Clare White - Anchal Volunteer
"I'm thankful for the way Anchal inspires me. The artisan's and their strength always leave me hopeful, the creative energy of the team galvanizes me in my own projects, and the supportive atmosphere at Anchal helps me to keep a positive outlook."
Taylor Logsdon - Anchal Volunteer
"I am thankful for Anchal because it gives us an opportunity to help women in need that are outside of our own community. As others see what we do for our artisans in India it inspires them to make one small positive change in their own life or for someone else. As this process continues it only proves the power of giving."
Eleanor White - Anchal Volunteer
"I am thankful for all the opportunities I have been given especially in education. Anchal inspires me to help other women who haven't been as fortunate as me. I am incredibly lucky to volunteer at Anchal & work with such empowering women."
