Self-Care Advice from Maya Angelou: “Withdrawing from the Cares”

2021 marks our fifth year publishing Philanthropy Women. While publishing PW is often exciting, enlightening, and inspiring, the time and energy that the constant production of content requires is significant. As a result, we are going to take a break and enjoy some time to reboot and refresh.

PW will be on break as we refresh and recharge before diving into the fall season of our fifth year.

From now until August 23rd, Philanthropy Women will be on a break. We are going to unplug for these weeks, so we can come back stronger than ever to finish out 2021. We will be using this time to be with family and friends, and enjoy favorite activities.

Our content database of over 1,050 articles will still be available. Our Gender Equality Funder Knowledgebase with over 700 listed funders will still be available. We will not be producing any new content during our break. However, each week we will be reposting some of our most popular and impactful stories from the past five years on our front page.

The great Maya Angelou once said, “Each person deserves a day in which no problems are confronted, no solutions searched for. Each of us needs to withdraw from the cares which will not withdraw from us.”

We hope that you will take some time to enjoy your own respite from the cares that will not withdraw from you in the world. We look forward to finishing out our fifth year of publishing when we pick back up at the end of August.
