World Dream Day is September 25!
Each year on September 25, World Dream Day is observed by encouraging individuals to take the steps necessary to make their dreams come true. It is also a day of building new hopes and committing to new possibilities. One may say this is the holiday for dream makers, and as Soroptimists, we should celebrate twice as hard!
Every single day Soroptimists work hard to make dreams come true for women and girls. We host supply drives and benefit lunches to support our Big Goal. We offer guidance and educational opportunities through our Dream Programs. We work closely within our community to advance our mission. World Dream Day is a holiday meant for people like us.
World Dream Day is an international day of declaring dreams and committing to act on them. To help you out, we organized three actions you can take today!
- Support our Big Dream for the Future
Teaser alert! As you will hear in our upcoming 100th-anniversary celebration, Soroptimists are committing to dreaming even bigger and pledging to invest in the dreams of half a million women and girls by 2031! While certainly a lofty goal, reaching it will allow us to expand, deliver, and sustain our programs into Soroptimist’s next century. Investing in our big dream today will help us reach even more women and girls tomorrow.
