CREATE A CULTURE OF GIVING
RISE ABOVE, GIVE BEYOND
GIVING IS A CRITICAL PART OF THE HEALING PROCESS OF RECLAIMING ONE'S SELF AND SELF-DIRECTION!
iRise Above’s overarching philosophy is that intentional giving, whether it’s time, money, or resources, is influential and has a lasting, profound ripple effect, for both the giver and receiver. Having the privilege to travel whilst participating in the expeditions means iRise Above participants automatically become representatives of the foundation and ultimately, its vision. iRise Above encourages our women to be the change they wish to see in the world through making a positive, lasting impact through Rise Above, Give Beyond.
