While there is so much that inspires Share the Love, there is one factor, above all else, that motivates us each day – the chance to give back to the community. Funds raised by Share the Love go directly to support local organizations that change lives. We are excited to announce that the proceeds from the 2019 Fashion Show will be donated to three local non-profit organizations: Woods Humane Society, Stand Strong, and Jack's Helping Hand.
Woods Humane Society's mission is to serve, protect and shelter homeless companion animals; to place animals into humane environments; to promote responsible pet ownership, provide humane education, and reduce animal overpopulation; and to celebrate the human-animal bond.
The Mission of Stand Strong, formerly the Women’s Shelter Program of San Luis Obispo County, is to support survivors and end domestic violence in San Luis Obispo County. Stand Strong provided services to 870 people across San Luis Obispo County for domestic violence and child abuse in the last year alone.
Jack’s Helping Hand was created to carry on the memory of one small boy, Jack Ready, who won the hearts of our community during his three year struggle with a rare form of brain cancer. We have many programs to help children with special needs including three adaptive toy lending libraries, a water therapy program, a therapeutic horseback riding program, a camp for families with children affected by cancer, and much more!
