A Letter For Empowerment
HEY there lovelies!!! I hope you are having a wonderful Saturday! I don’t usually post on weekends, but I am working on a special cause and wanted to share with y’all in hopes that you might help :-).
The Gye Nyame (jean yuh-me) Empowerment Project (GNEP), http://empowermegnep.org, is a non-profit organization that provides tools and conversations that affirm positive life outcomes for Pan-African people and their communities, and every March the organization holds a “Sista-2-Sista Youth Summit,” through which they empower high school girls to reach their full potential through panel discussions, workshops, live entertainment, and reflective activities.
Many of you know that I am very passionate about teen girls and love anything that provides them the empowerment that they truly need at this phase in their lives, so I have always loved this summit idea! In the past, I have supported the GNEP “Sista-2-Sista Youth Summit” with a donation, and this year, I’m taking on the challenge of helping to raise funds in order to make this summit possible.
This is where I need your help. GNEP ( http://empowermegnep.org ) is currently raising money for the summit with an Indiegogo campaign ( http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/2013-sista-2-sista-youth-summit?website_name=S2S2013 ). They are aiming to raise $8,000 in the next 17 days, and I am simply trying to raise $200 of that (if each of you donate at least $10, I will surpass that goal). Every donation, big or small, will help GNEP in empowering these young high school girls for the 7th year in the row, so whatever you can donate will be appreciated. I would not ask you to do anything that I am not doing myself, as I have already made my donation for this year’s summit. For more information, please visit the links provided above.
I don’t usually ask you guys for anything, except to read my post, lol, but when the opportunity comes to support a great cause, I can’t help but ask for a favor. Thanks in advance for supporting this great cause!
