Did you know the DBE in USA has a scholarship fund for Female students, 18 years of age or older, who are residents of the USA with British or Commonwealth of Nations ancestry? This year in our district we are delighted to announce that a Coloradoan won it! Congratulations to Miss Emily Klassen, currently attending at University of San Diego, majoring in Sociology with minors in Spanish and Business Administration.
“My name is Emily Klaassen and I was chosen as one of several of this year's recipients of the DBE College Scholarship from the Josephine Langstaff Memorial Fund. I am humbled and honored to have been chosen and am very thankful for having been given the opportunity to further my education with the help of this scholarship.” You can read more of Emily's story in our Membership Blog. You can find the blog under the "Chapters" tab on the drop down menu.
We have teamed up again with flowerPowerFundraising! They have provided us with a colorful website with lots of summer bulbs, plants, seeds and even some equipment to satisfy the avid gardener in you! What better way to give to charity than to watch that gift bloom year after year or to eat it's rewards! 50% of all profits made through sales will be donated to us, and we will, in turn donate it to all the worthwhile charities we support in Colorado and to the British Home. Check out the website today and don't forget to order soon to guarantee you get what you want! Orders will begin to be shipped out at the end of March/April, according to your Zone. Anyone anywhere can order! And don't forget to share this link with your gardening friends! Daughters of the British Empire (flowerpowerfundraising.com)

Recently the Mary Wollstonecraft Chapter in Colorado Springs made a delivery of all the soft toys and dolls they had been collecting to the the Doll Dr.'s located at the First Lutheran Church in the Downtown area. This program takes gently used dolls and soft toys, makes clothes and blankets for them and then distributes them to children in need, in various situations, at Christmas time.
The Daughters of the British Empire (DBE) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit American society of women of British or Commonwealth birth or ancestry. We share and promote our British heritage while supporting local charities and our four senior living facilities across the US.
