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
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.)
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.
