    In 2008, Leslye Borden made a decision that would give hundreds of abused women something to hold on to. Having sold her stock photo business the year before, without any idea of what life was going to hold for her next, she decided to combine her love of knitting with her desire to give back to the community and launched Handmade Especially for You, an organization that provides handmade "comfort" scarves as gifts to women who have suffered abuse.

    Ann Reiss Lane is the Founder and Chair Emeritus of Women Against Gun Violence (WAGV). The organization started in 1993 in response to the gun industry's expansive marketing campaign toward women and the surging handgun homicide rate (at the time there was a reported 40,000 gun deaths in the U.S.). Ms. Reiss Lane's vision was to empower women, whose roles had traditionally been caretakers of the community, to help bring down the gun homicide rate.
