BENEFITING: Girls Empowerment Network
On September 24th, 2014...I am turning 30 years old. I would LOVE for y'all to celebrate this milestone in my life by helping me fund 30 girls to attend GENaustin's We Are Girls Conference on scholarship. Each scholarship is $30. Let's do this in 30 days!
DO YOU SEE A THEME? IT'S PERFECT!
GENaustin’s We Are Girls Conference is a statewide annual event that helps girls explore the issues of bullying, body image and being a girl. Skill-building workshops and dynamic presentations are offered on topics including creating healthy relationships, building financial and media literacy, enhancing parent-daughter relationships and increasing positive body image, health, and wellness. Designed especially for girls in grades 3-12 and the adults who care about them, We Are Girls connects individuals with questions to the experts who have the answers.
About GENaustin, my beloved employer:
Our mission is to support and guide girls to make wise choices as they navigate the unique pressures of girlhood. We do this through a variety of self-esteem and skill building support services for girls...including the We Are Girls Conference.
Why I am doing this:
Let's be honest...as much as I love STUFF, I have enough of it. That's why for my 30th birthday, I hope my friends and family will support me in sending girls who cannot otherwise afford it to the We Are Girls Conference. THAT'S ALL I WANT! For the first 3 years I worked at GENaustin, I coordinated this special event. Now, I still help manage and oversee it. It's an important day and I want to help ensure that ALL young women (regardless of personal finances) can attend it!
