This year as part of Harry's birthday project we've decided to fundraise for this amazing organization. Every year, Harry Styles' fans unite to celebrate his birthday in a very special way. The way we pick causes is typically influenced by things Harry supports himself... This time we want to encourage and bring awareness to a new cause: Black Lives Matter. Specifically we've picked an organization focused on young black women.
Black Girls Rock is an incredible organization that has encouraged dialogue of the way women of color are portrayed in the media, something that more of us need to do! They have multiple youth enrichment programs, where through mentorship, arts, education, cultural exploration, and public service, they help to build self-esteem, and self-worth in women of color.
Mission Statement: Since 2006, BLACK GIRLS ROCK! has been dedicated to the healthy development of young women and girls. BLACK GIRLS ROCK! seeks to build the self-esteem and self-worth of young women of color by changing their outlook on life, broadening their horizons, and helping them to empower themselves. Since 2006, we have enjoyed the opportunity to enrich the lives of girls aged 12 to 17 years old through mentorship, arts education, cultural exploration and public service. At BLACK GIRLS ROCK!, young women are offered access to enrichment programs and opportunities that place special emphasis on personal development through the arts and cooperative learning.
By supporting this cause we're not trying to say ONLY black lives matter or only black girls matter. “Black Lives Matter“ is trying to highlight that there is demonstrable evidence that black lives matter less than white lives to the criminal justice system (and the American government as a whole).
If you believe in this cause, please donate whatever you can and spread the word.
