Invite Award Recipients: Your club’s award recipients may not be in a position to join Soroptimist so invite them to join Live Your Dream instead—it’s free for everyone! The online community is a great way to engage them in the Soroptimist mission and connect them with a network of other people who want to help women and girls to live their dreams. In addition, award recipients can share their story or find inspiration and helpful tips by reading the Aspire section of LiveYourDream.org, which contains articles on women’s health, careers, finances, and lifestyles. Or perhaps they chose to give back to the community by participating in one of Soroptimist’s programs. Introducing Live Your Dream to your award recipients is a win‐win for all!
