Ms. Dale has always enjoyed helping other people, especially the elderly, since she was a child. In 2002 she started Anointed Gifts & Services, which specializes in inspirational, Christian and other custom writing and gifts for all occasions.

Raising three kids as a single mother and also having a desire to help other people who are struggling to make ends meet, she donates a portion of the proceeds to outreach ministries and those in need.

Ms. Dale doesn't think of this as work. It's a passion, a desire to go beyond the scope of everyday living to touch the lives of many people around her and truly make a difference in this world. She has seen so many people encouraged after reading these writings, from marriages not ending in divorce, to women not committing suicide, to sisters forgiving one another after ten years of not speaking. It's a joy that can only come from within.

The Kiva loan will be used to purchase materials and pay the pillow maker for her work.
