BIG Life Mission Adventure
Once a year, we halt the extreme adventures and travels, and we come together for a project bigger and greater than ourselves. This is our Mission Retreat 2022!
The Mission . . .
We are partnering with a non-profit called 99 + 1 and their mission to house girls who are aging out of the foster care system. At 18, these girls are basically dropped off somewhere, many without family connections or hope for their future, often ending up homeless, jobless, or pregnant. 99 + 1 has purchased an old nursing home and are in the process of transforming it into studio apartments for these girls in what they call their "Aging-In Program”.
Our mission will be to come into this newly renovated space and completely furnish and decorate 13 studio apartments and make it into their own private space, some for the first time ever.
Y'all, we're not talking hand me downs and misfit things, we're talking a professional designer with the things dream rooms are made of! We're doing it, and we're doing it BIG!!!!!
The Funding . . .
Over the past year we have been collecting every penny of the proceeds from our BIG Life Gear sales (biglifegear.com) for this mission. We also have a generous donor matching that money dollar for dollar. In addition, we will use ticket sales for funding AND create an Amazon wish list inviting YOU to purchase something special for one of the rooms as a gift from you and your family!
Retreat . . .
We have reserved the amazing Circle M Lodge which sleeps 40, as well as hired a team to come in and cook delicious food for each of our meals. We will have special fun time together as an Army of BIG Life Sisters, and we will do great work together. Sleeping arrangements within the lodge are share queen or full, plus twin bunk beds.
As a special closing event on Monday morning, we will have ALPACA YOGA in the lodge! Yes, that's right. The sweetest, most beautiful, trained alpacas will be coming to do yoga with us. (If that wasn't already on your bucket list, go ahead and add it now!)
Your Part . . .
It’s really simple, we simply ask that you come ready to work as part of a small team to put together one of the studio apartments. We will supply everything needed, you will come in, put together furniture, arrange the room, hang curtains, place all the special items, and make it just perfect for our special girls.
Of course we would love for you to purchase a little something on the Amazon wish list as you feel led. (List coming soon).
When we get to meet some of the girls in the "Aging-In Program", represent who we are in BIG Life and just love the heck out of them,
showing them how we treat one another. Pray over them and bless them. That's it. I know that's what you do so well.
Remember . . .
We don't do drama. We don't do alcohol. We don't do gossip. WE DO LIFE, and we do it BIG!
All women are welcome here. Retreat is a no judgment, no drama, no alcohol, no excuses, no regrets zone. Every detail specially designed to help you find and love YOU.
100% committed to helping you live a BIG Life.
If you’re struggling in life, we’re eager to help. If you’re going through some problems, let us help you through them. If you’re not perfect, then join the rest of us who are not either. This is a weekend of joy, laughter, breakthroughs, memories, sisterhood, and adventures. If that’s what you need in your life, you’re going to love it here.
