Small Creations, Big Impact

Give to empower, encourage and educate.

Our goal is that by the fall of 2017, we will have the financial means to pay our girls educational stipends every two weeks for their hard work at Arise.  This will allow us to continue to provide practical training and work experience, with hopes that the girls may one day be more prepared and equipped to obtain a job in the future.


Here are some needs to consider:

  • Your gift of $60 will provide the educational stipend for one middle school girl for a month.
  • Your gift of $65 will provide the educational stipend for one high school girl for a month.
  • Your gift of $115 will provide educational stipends for every high school girl for a week.
  • Your gift of $150 will provide educational stipends for every middle school girl for a week.

We are also looking to purchase a Square dock and iPad, which would provide a cohesive service to run our business at selling events.  This would give us the opportunity to teach the girls customer service skills, money management, and how to use a register – all skills valuable for obtaining future employment.

Finally, we are constantly in need of supplies to run our program.  Each new product line that we create calls for new supplies and marketing materials.  Your gift will allow the girls to continue to use their creative gifts to make our new lines at Arise.

Can’t financially contribute? There are several other ways to get involved:

  1. PRAY. We are in greatest need of the prayers of God’s people. “For where two or three gather in My name, there I am with them.” Matthew 18:20
  2. Tell others about our Arise “Small Business, Big Impact” fundraiser by sharing on your social media accounts.
  3. Visit us on our Etsy page at to purchase our jewelry!

Meeting three times a week, Arise participants learn, create, and sell their pieces; equipping them with business skills while exploring God’s deep truths. Each day they are equipped and empowered to be agents of change in their community.  In addition to this, participants also engage in community craft fairs, home parties and sell at other events and venues.

Just can’t get enough? Consider hosting a house party, or featuring Arise at an event!
