THE STORY:

I was able to share in GENaustin's We Are Girls experience last year with one of my beloved "nieces" who just started 6th grade. Through this conference, GENaustin is able to help hundreds of girls and the adults that care for them to confront and deal with important issues our children face every day. 

As a further expmple, read about Solana's story and experience with GENaustin here:

Solana is an 8th grade girl in Austin, Texas who, like most of her peers, is worrying about bullying and body image.  “You always hear girls say, I look so fat or I’m so ugly – because we feel bad about our bodies.  We worry about bullying, too.  Some girls will intimidate you by starting rumors or physical fights.  There are girls who will beat you up. ”

Solana is like hundreds of other girls who want to attend GENaustin’sWe Are Girls Conference on Saturday, November 3rdat Austin High School to talk to local and national experts about bullying, body image and being a girl. Yet so many girls can’t afford the $30 ticket.

Will you scholarship a girl like Solana to this life-changing event for just $30?

Year after year, girls and parents from all over Texas tell us the We Are Girls Conference helped them address the issues they are facing and not feel so alone$30 will send one lucky girl to have this empowering experience and we need your help to provide this opportunity to at least 50% of our 1600 attendees.

With a national crisis for girls, your support is paramount.  Please make a donation of $30 or more and make a difference in a girl’s life!
