How We Thrive
Get involved with the Thrive community! All programs and activities are FREE, but we do appreciate any donations to expand our program so we can help more young women nationwide.
At its heart, Thrive is an online support network for women with disabilities. The internet is a fantastic resource for women to share their stories and create lasting friendships. Please join us on Facebook, Twitter, and Tumblr to become a part of this awesome community! You can also stay in touch on everything through this website.
Thrive holds quarterly chats on Twitter about relevant topics for young women with disabilities. Our past events focused on discrimination at school, accessible fashion tips, and disability representation on TV. Keep checking back to see the latest events, or sign up for mobile alerts by texting THRIVE to 80077! Msg & Data Rates May Apply. Terms: mGive.com/E.
Letters to Thrive Blog
If you could write a letter to your younger self, what would you say? We asked this question to Thrive participants in 2013; it was so popular that we transformed the letters into a blog. Check out Letters to Thrive on Tumblr, where you can read personal stories about life lessons; we also share other writing to help lift the voices of women with disabilities. Thrive is always looking for more participants, too – just visit the Tumblr to learn more!
