Happy Digital Sisterhood Wednesday!
Digital Sisterhood Network founder Ananda Leeke joined a powerful group of blogger ambassadors Jessica Ashley, Judy Freedman, Sharon Greenthal, Chloe Jefrries, and Patricia Patton in supporting AARP during the BlogHer 9th Annual Conference at the McCormick Place in Chicago, Illinois. As an AARP blogger ambassador for the CareSupport Campaign and Decide.Create.Share Campaign, Leeke was on double duty. She was able to work side-by-side AARP staff and share information about AARP’s Caregiving, Decide. Create. Share., and Life Reimaged Programs with BlogHer attendees in the Expo Hall. The conversations she had with attendees underscored the importance of each campaign’s value to women. Check out the photos below.
More About AARP
AARP is a nonprofit organization that helps people who are 50 and over turn their goals and dreams into real possibilities, strengthens communities, and fights for the issues that matter most to families such as healthcare, employment security, and retirement planning.
AARP’s Decide. Create. Share. Initiative is designed to help women do three things: 1) Decide what kind of future they want for themselves. 2) Create a long-term plan that will help them address their health, financial, legal, and home issues and achieve their goals. 3) Share their long-term plan with the important people in their lives. The 40 Day Pledge offers you an opportunity to make a commitment to complete a Living Longer, Living Smarter plan for your future. It covers four critical areas of your life—your home and community, your health, your finances and your wishes.
If you are a caregiver or have family members, friends, or colleagues who serve as caregivers, please encourage them to visit AARP’s Caregiving Resource Center. The web site has great articles and tips that caregivers can use to support their wellness journey as they care for their loved ones. FYI – When you travel, you can now access AARP’s Caregiving Resource Center on your iPad !
Life Reimagined offers powerful tools, resources, and inspirational content to help you reconnect with your natural gifts and talents so you can live your best life. Life Reimagined also provides a community where you can your share goals and dreams, and have conversations with real people just like you that can result in real change. In addition, AARP established the Life Reimagined Institute which provides thought leadership and program development that guides and fuels the Life Reimagined experience. Think of it as an incubator of transformational processes, methodologies, and insights. Through the Institute, you will have access to the world’s leading experts in personal development, aging, transitions, and reimagining life.
