Rock Star Angels Program
This is a special area for our members that enjoy spreading some love by helping others.
The "subscription" to belong to this group and access the Angels Room is a $25/year donation of which the net proceeds will be used in a way to lift others - or - anyone that has been involved in our previous charitable efforts will be manually added to this space.  In the sessions,  we organize and fund projects as well as we may talk about our progress, or make decisions on where to spend the money.   This is an incredible group of people.    After joining the group, we organize our efforts to help others or lift spirits.  

CURRENTLY: (at the time of this writing - August, 2018):  We have recently supported one member with $830 (so far) , more gifts sent individually by members,  as well as we have "Love Bombed" her with sewing supplies.  She is battling cancer as well as a heartbreaking divorce.   We are still standing by this member so she does not feel alone in her challenge.

2018 or 2019:  In the works:  This is Sally's pet project!  Life changing dental work for one person with genetically missing teeth.
Sally had her own dental implant work done in May of 2016 after life-long, painful and disfiguring issues with genetically missing teeth.   Dental implant work is about $40,000.    In order for Sally to obtain the work, she moved in to an RV (her "Sewmobile")  to live frugally so she could afford the work.   It's changed her life in amazing ways - it made her business easier and she met her "Mr Sally" just 4 days after her surgery.   So the story:

During a chat with her dentist during a pre-op appointment in April of 2016, she learned that he had just completed a patient and did it "pro bono" (very little / no cost to patient).   At that time Sally made the commitment to support the dentist's charity by having her business (SLARS!) contribute the amount needed to change one person's life forever.   She promised that when she makes the final $10,000 payment on her own work (hopefully soon!), she intends to present another $5,000 to Renewing Smiles to cover the raw costs of providing services to one of her dentist's next pro bono patients.    

In 2016, the death of her daughter and subsequent sabotage of her business derailed her from getting her final work done... but it now there's a light at the end of the tunnel and this project is not forgotten by any means!
At the time of this writing (August 2018) she is still very much committed to pay for one pro-bono dental implant patient when she makes the final payment on her own dental work.  Please see THE VIDEO of Blake's Story.. so you can fully appreciate how amazing it will be to have us be the source of this life changing gift for the next person from Sew Like A Rock Star and Sew Much Nicer Community.    Sales from certain patterns or other efforts are being contributed to fund this.   You'll see more about this as we go along.  

Some of our recent efforts:
2018:  A hotel room was paid for to keep a young woman safe for one night.
2018:  Beautiful plants were delivered to two members that lost their husbands.
2018:  A "Love Quilt" was made by the VIP members that was sent to a member in South Africa who lost her husband tragically.  The fund paid for shipping.  
2017 - present:    Gifts of VIP membership are donated to help lift spirits of deserving members.  
2015:  Several members supported a mother and her 2 kids by keeping a roof over her head (hotel rent) and paying for groceries while she was waiting out getting her first paycheck from her new job.
2015:  A new sewing machine was sent to someone who wanted to learn to sew to "feel better".  She had almost died herself and her husband did pass.   She found us and we "Love Bombed" her with packages of sewing necessities.
