John Bayeux receiving the SHARE YMCA Volunteer of the Year Award 2014

SHARE is proud to name John Bayeux as its volunteer of the year for 2014! The co-founder and president of the SHARE at Desales University has taken tremendous steps towards promoting awareness about female education and empowerment in Tanzania. We are so glad to have John on our team! 

Ridge High School held its first annual Women’s Leadership Summit, featuring SHARE's founder and a collection of other empowered, intelligent and hardworking female speakers. To help fundraise and raise awareness about SHARE, the Ridge chapter put together and sold homemade mason jars filled with ingredients to make double chocolate chip cookies. The day before, ten members of the club gathered at the president, Reagan Asay's house and spent three hours putting ingredients into 60 mason jars with homemade tags and hand-twirled ribbon.

One generous couple made a $500 donation to SHARE in lieu of wedding favors, to “make a positive difference in two young women’s lives together!

Many thanks to the Maryland Girls on the Run Team for donating funds to sponsor a SHARE Girl for the 2015 academic school year!

In February 2014, Rice University student Kenneth Misner and his fellow classmates were presented with the Gumball Challenge in their business class. The project spurred them to organize an on-campus car wash, the proceeds of which were donated to SHARE in Africa. We can't wait to see what these entrepreneurs come up with in the future! 

SHARE is so lucky to have its DeSales University SHARE Chapter! In 2014, the club received the annual Reverend James Finnegan Community Service Award for Outstanding Organization as a testament to all the hard work they have done for both SHARE and the community.
