– Two Yelm ladies organize ‘A Special Day For Single Moms’
Chris Richard was inspired to join Isabelle Diluzio’s vision:
“I have no children of my own. After spending 10 days with my three and a half year old nephew while my sister-in-law was having her second child this past summer, I saw what it takes to care for a young child. At my store, I currently have two single moms working for me and after I came back from that trip I got a greater sense of appreciation for what it takes to be the sole provider in their home.
“As part of a Self-Expression and Leadership program I’m taking right now, I have created a project called Mothers Empowered, a Special Day for Single Moms. I knew I wanted to create a day just for those moms, a day that would be about being inspired and learning while being pampered, moments they no longer have time for between work and home.
“We have created a great day that will take place on Sunday the 18th of February 2018 in Yelm. Like any other event we need a little funding to make this day a success. I put together a Go Fund Me page (see link below) where you can find more information. We would be very grateful if you can help us. Every little bit is welcome.

Also, if you know of any single mom that could be interested in this day, please send them our way. We created an email where they can contact us: firstname.lastname@example.org – You are very welcome to forward this email to anyone you think who would be interested.”
– “Day of Tools and Inspiration for Single Mothers Comes to Yelm”
“If becoming a parent is a challenge, being a single parent can be downright daunting. Juggling finances, the relentless demands of young children, and the necessity of making solo decisions can leave no time for taking care of yourself or developing strategies to take better care of your family.
“For single mothers in Yelm and surrounding areas, that can change. On February 18 a free workshop called Mothers Empowered will provide tools, tips, and training for single mothers, along with wellness exercises like yoga.
“The day will run from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at the Wellspring Integrative Wellness Center in Yelm and will include advice from a guest speaker on how to live within your means. ‘We have a financial expert who’s going to talk about what that really means,’ says DiLuzio.
“Participants will also be trained in how to create and reach a goal within 13 weeks through using a journal, a tool that DiLuzio uses in her Quiznos’ franchise business in Yelm. ‘It’s more than a journal,’ she says, by Heidi Smith for Wellspring Integrative Wellness Center, in Thurston Talk.
