THE SAVANNAH INFLUENCERS
In September of 2016, Meredith Barfield (Tongue in Cheek Chic) and I gathered a group of women to drink, dine and discuss how we could support one another and the Savannah community at large. That one evening has turned into something pretty fantastic! We are now a group of 26 women strong, and are doing our part to give back.
In the latter part of 2016, the Savannah Influencers came together to support the Dwaine & Cynthia Willett Children’s Hospital of Savannah, and it's patrons. We hosted a craft morning for some of the children, helped to setup, decorate and deliver toys for their Santa's Workshop program, and fundraised dinners + gifts for 4 very deserving families. All of this was pulled together in a matter of weeks and made possible by the generous donations of many.
This year, the group has been tactfully planning out our 'Give Backs'. Our primary give back selection for 2017 is Safe Shelter, and our two secondary give backs are; Girls on the Run and Backpack Buddies.
Jessica Mock - fellow Savannah Influencer and local Savannah business owner (Southern Sugaring), will be kicking off the fundraising efforts for Safe Shelter by donating a portion of the proceeds from:

Some of the Savannah Influencers:
I have been involved in philanthropical work for as long as I can remember, so when I moved to Savannah I just knew I had to get involved. The Savannah Influencers has not only served as a way to give back, but has opened the door to many amazing, new friendships. If you are interested in getting involved in the SAVANNAH INFLUENCERS or the soon to be CHARLESTON INFLUENCERS I'd love to hear from you! You can CONTACT ME and I will be in touch!
