This month we spotlight our lovely, gracious and talented volunteer Christine Thomas. We are so fortunate that her life path lead her to our doorsteps! She has been volunteering with AWBW for years now, and she is always willing to offer her helping hands for whatever we need.
Christine's artistic gifts are apparent in all that she creates for us, including painting quote cards that leaders from shelters submit after conducting Windows Workshops. Christine's beautiful creations only help to enhance the message we are trying to convey -- art continues to mobilize the women and children whom we service that are affected by domestic violence.
Simultaneously, Christine is instrumental in helping us put on special events throughout the year, as well as bringing her dear children into the office from time to time to help out! We simply adore her presence, and she is a shining star in all that she does to support AWBW!
"I moved to America from England with my husband, John, and children, Holly and Jack, two years ago. At first I was busy getting us settled and finding schools, but as time passed I needed something else in my life and, as luck would have it, I met someone who told me about A Window Between Worlds. I instantly felt that this was the right place for me.
I now volunteer every Thursday morning, mostly painting envelopes and quote cards, which I love--as my background is in art--but also helping with whatever needs doing. I've helped at a number of fundraising events, and have met some very lovely people in the process.
I feel so blessed to have found Windows, it's a really relaxing place to be, filled with such amazing, warm women. It's so satisfying to be involved with an organization which is doing so much good in the lives of so many women and children around America."
