The Witherspoon Institute (WIN)
WIN you think success 
The Witherspoon Institute (WIN) is dedicated to the development of personal and collective success!  To reach achievements you must first create then reinforce a mindset of not can do but  "will do" spirit. WIN accomplishes this major goal through curriculums of leadership, etiquette and ballroom dance with developmentally appropriate interpersonal business and social skills that are necessary to succeed in multi-level environments.

The Children's Quilt    

With the assistance of  Simon Mall Properties, Senator John Kerry, and The Permanent Mission of Haiti at the United Nations under the direction of  Ambassador Leo Mereros, the quilt expanded from a Massachusetts state project in 2010 to the international  launch of the American Alabaster Quilt for Haiti in 2011. 

The "Raise Your Hand for Haiti" project will reside under the expanded Children's Quilt in 2012 to focus on raising awareness for children of disasters around the globe including America's Katrina and Japan's tsunami.  Events under Raise Your Hand for Haiti will continue with projects such as the December Caribbean Cruise to Haiti.

The Children's Quilt is part of the Witherspoon Institute's community world leadership project under the (SLIP) Strategic Leadership Investment Plan.  SLIP teaches youth a life-long lesson of giving focused on collective efforts that impact local and world community.   For details, please take a moment to view the  U.N. Haiti Summit Newsletter below:

     The Witherspoon Institute "WIN you think success"
WIN is traveling across the world to gather hand written cloth notes  to send well wishes and prayers to children and communities in trauma from disasters.   The notes, written by people from every corner of the world, are added to the quilt by hundreds of quilting guilds around the world.   Each 12 inch square represents a $10 donation.  Monies raised from this effort assist children relief agencies to provide supplies and longer term educational needs for disaster torn nations.

Please join our international quilting bee today!  Log on to our Witherspoon web store and order a square today. 

Please                    with comments or questions related to the Witherspoon Institute classes and programs.   We like to stay in touch with our friends.  Please follow us on facebook.
