Do you have the urge to travel and the eagerness to combine that with real urgency to make a difference in the lives of others? The work of this entrepreneur and Spirtual Leader will no doubt ignite your interest and may inspire you to find your own path to becoming involved in valuable philanthropical efforts.

Seeing the world through the lens of others is an incredibly enriching experience. For those who choose a life of service into other parts of the globe, they gain a unique view into what many of us may never get to see up close. Rev. Nettie Jorinda Bullitt is no stranger to expanding her horizons, and lending a helping hand to sharing her knowledge with those who need it most. Bullitt wears many hats as a Leader, Veteran, Professional Life Coach, retired United Methodist Pastor, pastor emerita at Calvary United Methodist Church in Pittsburgh, and Global Ambassador for the Global Sisterhood. That is an impressive list for sure. It is her unique and unwavering commitment to the humanitarian cause that makes Bullit a true hero and mentor to look up to. It is through her work with the Global Sisterhood that Bullitt embraced the calling to journey to Tanzania in December 2023 for a mission based purpose. There she taught a workshop on the construction of reusable feminine hygiene products, provided needed resource such as table and chairs for the entrepreneurial school, and she awarded scholarships to to children in honor of her mother Nettie Ophelia Anthony Bullitt, and her father Hueston E. Bullitt, Jr.

Being the Global Ambassador for the Global Sisterhood also allows for Bullitt to make the connections that bring about opportunity for joyous occasions with purpose. Just recently Bullitt and Inspiring Lives Magazine Editor and Chief, and Founder of the Global Sisterhood, Dr. Shellie Hipsky collaborated on an important philanthropic cultural donation. Bullitt and Hipsky presented Demeatria Boccella, (the Producer and Curator of Style) with a powerful piece of art at the August Wilson House. “This amazing drawing of the playwright icon August Wilson was created by acclaimed artist John Sokol in layers of writing from the words from the script from Fences,” stated Dr. Shellie Hipsky. She went on to say that, “the home was renovated due in part to donations to donations from multiple empowered celebrities who wanted to celebrate August’s impact on black culture and arts including Oprah Winfrey, Denzel Washington, Tyler Perry, and amazing foundations. Now due in part to Global Sisters such as the incredible humanitarian Nettie Jorinda (who is our Global Ambassador), the right resources and connections are being made her in Pittsburgh and around the world.”

Attending such an uplifting day and being part of that type of experience is one of those life moments you can truly be proud to be a part of, and Bullitt is a prime example of uniting people for a great cause. Why? Because she is unequivocally passionate about working tirelessly to help others come out of an unfortunate situation and rise into better. That cannot be a learned trait. It is deeply ingrained in who Bullitt is, and the values she holds dear.

Bullitt is a strong advocate for women and children who do not have access to the resources needed to grow and thrive. She speaks out, and takes action for them in various ways. None in more high regard than her service in the United States Air Force, in the Vietnam-Era. Bullitt expresses pure gratitude to her Savior and to her nation by excitingly stating in a social media post, “Thank you Jesus! Thankyou America for the opportunity to serve!” Her time serving our great nation undoubtedly instilled Bullitt with the incredible integrity and leadership skills she very clearly exhibits today.

Among her many pursuits abroad, Bullitt is dedicated to supporting her own family and local communities as well. Her insurmountable efforts engaging in community are not happenstance. Bullitt shines at her best when she is in the trenches making a difference, and seeing that results are happening. “The commitment to working with the marginalized communities of women and children around the world with whom we can make a difference. Thank you, Jesus!” That was a statement made by Bullitt and summarizes beautifully who she is, and what she represents.

Exceptional work is what one can come to expect when they are around Bullitt. Her energy is contagious. Bullitt promotes outreach.  This may be through large extravagant events, such as the recent Survivor to Thriver Fashion Show in which the focus was on drawing attention to survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault. Or Bullitt may be serving through such outreach efforts as donating sewing machines to Eva Dixon, a local fashion designer who is opening her own design school in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania! This is all a part of S.E.E.D.S. Sewing Exceptional Entrepreneurial Development Systems and is taking place in Pittsburgh, India, Africa, Nepal, and Pakistan.  Ethical missions are clearly given attention to when Bullitt aligns herself with a cause.

Even with so many examples in which Bullitt has contributed to society here, this piece does not mention the entirety of her vastness in humanitarian efforts. The name of Nettie Jorinda Bullitt truly deserves recognition and praise on the world’s stage.
