Brooke's Butterfly Touch nonprofit

I started Brooke's Butterfly Touch: Creative Storytelling Services  in 2014 to help others discover the power in their own stories in order to cultivate hope, emotional healing, acceptance, and new opportunities.

Since then, I've given many workshops and presentations throughout the state. But, I want to be able to serve the community better, with more events and resources. I'm in the process of applying for official nonprofit status, but it a few months before it's secured and I can apply for grants, etc.
In the meantime, I would be so grateful for your help in the following areas:
- Funding for event promotion and space rental or table/booth vendor fees
- Funding for printed materials (books, handouts, notebooks/journals, flashcards, etc)
- Funding for video and online course production
- Funding for travel expenses

Ministry Goals:

BBT aims to implement personal storytelling techniques to:

Develop better communication methods for one’s experiences and abilities to create new opportunities, personally and professionally
Inspire hope and emotional healing from hardships, while promoting a participant’s sense of purpose
Eliminate societal prejudices, stigmas, and misconceptions of those that are differently-abled and/or face profound adversity (mental illness, disease, abuse, tragic loss, etc.)

Ministry Vision:

BBT seeks to offer training (workshops, seminars, online courses) tools (workbooks, etc.), support  (individual coaching) and create a forum (showcase events, etc.) for anyone wishing to encourage others by illustrating the higher purpose in their struggles and other life experiences, using the various forms of storytelling. This will also serve to highlight an individual’s skills and talents; heightening visibility beyond any physical or mental limitations.

Hi friends,
I realize #GivingTuesday is winding down, but I would be so grateful if you would consider supporting my ministry. The fees to obtain nonprofit status are turning out to be more than I anticipated, but I'm not giving up. I feel called to help people find a space to honor God by sharing their stories, but I can't do it alone. Please give what you can. Anything will make a difference. Thank you! You are a blessing!

I'm slowly making progress friends, but I could still use your help. My goal is to have the nonprofit status established before the end of the year so I can begin pursuing community partnerships at the start of 2018. Anything you can give would be an incredible blessing! Thank you!

Dear Friends,

I'm incredibly grateful for your encouragement and support of my ministry goals! As a thank you to anyone who donates, I'd love to send you one of these verse cards (more to come; most colored by me) with a Storyteller's Blessing on the back, written by me.

"May you always recognize the power of your story because you know you are God's masterpiece. He created you anew in Christ Jesus, so you can do the good things He planned for you long ago.(Eph. 2:10). Take comfort in knowing that when your story comes to a point of conflict, those trials will show that your faith is genuine. It is being tested as fire tests and purifies gold-though your faith is far more precious than mere gold. So when your faith remains strong through many trials, it will bring you much praise and glory and honor on the day when Jesus Christ is revealed to the whole world (1 Peter 1:7). He is the true author of your story, so may you be assured that He is working all things together for the good of you who love Him and are called according to His purpose (Romans 8:28). As He walks with you, may you always encourage and build others up (1 Thess. 5:11)."
Just email me which one you'd like with your address when you donate. I love you all! Please share the blessings with your friends and family. EVERYONE has a story!
