The Red Tent Women’s Initiative Founder, Barbara Rhode, is a L’Oreal Women of Worth Award Winner for 2020!
October 19th, 2020. BIG NEWS! Red Tent announces that our founder Barbara Rhode has been honored by L’Oreal with a Women of Worth award! The Women of Worth program recognizes 10 women from all over the country for their tireless commitment to their communities and awards them $10,000 to support their philanthropic work. This is a huge boon for the incarcerated women with whom The Red Tent Women’s Initiative works at the Pinellas County Jail!
Even more exciting—we have the opportunity to win an additional $25,000 with your help! This $25,000 award would allow us to provide a second Red Tent class at the Pinellas County Jail and DOUBLE our impact! The jail has already given us the green light to go ahead with this project, but we need our supporters to help us get there.
