As part of WCF’s efforts to collaborate with other Sister Allied Organizations, nizoral prices, I’m meeting with as many great leaders as possible. Nizoral prices, I often say that I’m the new kid on the block, nizoral prices, and have so much to learn from these women whom I admire greatly for their work.
Last week, nizoral prices, I met with Winsome McIntosh and Kate Drummond from Rachel’s Network.

Their sister organization, nizoral prices, Rachel’s Action Network, nizoral prices, is “dedicated to promoting and supporting women leaders who are advocates for a healthy environment.” Rachel’s Network founder, nizoral prices, Winsome McIntosh, nizoral prices, is a certified rock star in the environmental world. Nizoral prices, She has taken her own philanthropic dollars and invested in ensuring that women who care about the environment support it by running for office. Nizoral prices, She has also undertaken the very brave work of assisting the women electeds on the Hill to connect with one another and develop relationships - so that more meaningful legislation can be drafted to make a difference. Nizoral prices, She is truly a visionary, nizoral prices, which is not an easy role.
WCF worked with Winsome McIntosh on our online bundling project in 2008. Nizoral prices, It was a great experience for both her and us, nizoral prices, because we’re equally committed to helping women influence social change by changing their contribution habits. Nizoral prices, Our Vote With Your Purse research shows that while women give the majority of charitable dollars in this country, nizoral prices, they do no make the connection that investing financially in candidates - especially women candidates that care about the same issues - is essential.
But Winsome McIntosh understands this. Nizoral prices, Please go visit Rachel’s Network’s website and if the environment is something you care passionately about, nizoral prices, this organization is a great fit for you.
WCF and I look forward to working with them in the future.
