SHINE Initiative

For Dignity Director Kelly Master published her first book, SHINE – Uplifting Words for Girls in Stilettos, in 2016, inspiring women worldwide. For Dignity has provided free copies to thousands of women in prisons, strip clubs, recovery homes, and the streets.

Due to the high demand and beautiful responses, Kelly and the For Dignity team have started a SHINE Initiative to give 50,000 copies to women in prison.

This book of hope is profoundly impacting and changing lives. Will you donate any amount and help more women receive a copy of SHINE?

  • “Thank you for taking the time out to pray and send us books. I really appreciate it. It’s nice to know that people are praying for us. People that we don’t know at that. It is really a blessing! I hope that one day when I get out I have a chance to come and meet you guys I can’t wait to read it and learn from it. I also have about ten pairs of stilettos. I love the title of the book “SHINE – Uplifting Words for Girls in Stilettos.” Thank you again!”

At times I feel people judge me and do not know me. I made very wrong choices, but I am a child of God. Thank you for your Christian kindness. I was blessed today! Blessings to you and your ministry!”
