In my search for funding one of our philanthropic projects I tripped over this awesome and worthwhile cause to raise money for a program in Los Angeles called WriteGirl, a nonprofit that benefits teen girls helping them develop writing skills. Would you please consider joining me in funding this project? For more information CLICK HERE.
Why girls? Why writing? Why $50,000?
Because if you want to change the world, you help girls. (And women, but we’re focusing on girls right now.)
Because mastering the ability to write opens doors, builds self-confidence and self-esteem, and increases a girl’s chances of earning a living for herself and changing the world for present and future generations.
Because despite the unbelievable accomplishments WriteGirl has made already in 10 years—including a 100% success rate in college placement, with WriteGirl mentees often the first of their families to attend—the organization is in danger of having to cut back on programming to stay afloat. That makes me cry even more than attending one of their monthly meetings, which are a Kleenex-laden boohoo wonder-fest of awesomeness.
And because I honestly cannot think of a better way to celebrate turning 50 than to raise $50,000 for an insanely great organization that empowers girls to change themselves and the world.
