November 15 is National Philanthropy Day. The Association of Fundraising Professionals designated the day and, in 1986, President Reagan signed the proclamation to recognize the day on the US calendar. We thought it would be a great time to highlight three amazing High Point businesswomen who have made a charitable impact on the community in up close and personal video interviews. 

For this National Philanthropy Day, we sat down with L’Tanya Joy Bailey, owner of L’Tanya J. Bailey, Orthodontics, Lisa Hawley, owner of Southern Roots Restaurant and Catering, and Tu Sen, owner of 98 Asian Bistro. We wanted each woman to tell her story about how she got started and what made her business a success. We also wanted to hear what valuable career advice helped them build their businesses and how they would advise other women who might be considering becoming business owners.

Most importantly, we wanted to showcase how each businesswoman has herself become a philanthropist and made giving back to the community a part of her business philosophy—especially in ways that can help other High Point area women find similar fulfillment and success in careers, education and business.

We hope you’ll celebrate National Philanthropy Day with Women in Motion and share these clips with your friends and colleagues. It’s a great way to share our mission with the community and beyond. You can also help us grow the Women in Motion Network with your contribution that you can make, right here.
