One thing I have learned in life that continues to stress itself more and more as I grow is that we are all born with some type of righteous anger. What is it that makes you so blood boiling mad that you want to shout about it to the world? This is your calling. This is your purpose. For me, I am filled with frustration when someone who is incredibly resilient in overcoming so many obstacles in life gets buried so deep with hopelessness that they see no way out. I have experienced this countless times myself, where somewhere a ray of hope–whether friend, stranger, or critter, mends my severed wings and whispers, “keep on flying!”
This scholarship has been birthed out of these trials. Not only has it birthed new hope inside of me, but it is a seed that will continually sprout life into the rich (though often not recognized as “rich”) soil of those who feel barren.
“Arrayah Ray of Hope” is an online shop on Etsy. After a trial period, I will likely move it to it’s own page, rather than on the Etsy site.
The unique thing about our store is that every purchase will be an investment into someone’s future. Each month, 50% of profits will go to a new or repeat scholarship recipient who has demonstrated resilience to overcome significant hardship.
Please share this page through your social media accounts to get the word out. You never know when someone in your own network might need help. It is also important to share this wonderful cause with those who might be in a position to donate or make a purchase from our shop to keep the scholarship going.
