I had the privilege of volunteering for the Brides Against Breast Cancer Charity event this past weekend! Brides Against Breast Cancer contributes to programs for cancer patients and their families. Their outreach and educational efforts take place during the “Nationwide Tour of Gowns” bridal shows around the country help ensure that people impacted by cancer have the resources and information they need in their battle with cancer. It was such great experience helping a beautiful bride pick out her dream gown! Congratulations Samantha on your engagement! Thank you for allowing me to help style you!
In light of cookie season, I have decided to RAFFLE off Three boxes of Girl Scout Thin Mints! The Girl Scout Cookie program was created to help girls learn goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills, and business ethics—aspects essential to leadership, success and life. The Girl Scout organization is much more than what people often think! As a lifelong member, I always shed light on the amazing opportunities I had through this organization. From earning over 1,000 hours of community service to emceeing the Girl Scout 100th year event on the national mall with over 250,000 girls and volunteers in attendance. The Girl Scout mission is building girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place. The instructions for the raffle are below, GOOD LUCK! #MythreeC

I had wonderful afternoon promoting GRL PWR during the RSO fair! If you didn’t make it out and would like more information please feel free to contact me or email: firstname.lastname@example.org. We will be having several events throughout the rest of the semester, LIKE OUR FACEBOOK PAGE Grl-Pwr. Stay tuned for upcoming service events!
Grl-Pwr is a non-profit organization dedicated to building self esteem in young girls through strong role models and group activities. Our Grl-Pwr chapters are currently focused on elementary school-aged girls and offer both an empowerment course and week-long camps.
We want to give girls the tools they need to be confident and successful, no matter what life throws at them. We understand that all girls, regardless of background, are vulnerable to self-esteem issues, and it is our mission to help girls learn how to love themselves and be strong enough to help those around them.

Empowered by its wonderful community of volunteers, Trees Atlanta serves the metro Atlanta area, and has grown to become one of Atlanta’s most widely known and supported non-profit organizations. Our mission statement: Trees Atlanta is a nationally recognized non-profit citizens’ group that protects and improves Atlanta’s urban forest by planting, conserving, and educating. We had a great time planting trees last Saturday morning!
DO BETTER is an organization dedicated to self-improvement through selfless action and positive social change. Know Better, #DoBetter. Each year, They conduct a food run in an unprivileged community. This year, we dedicated our efforts to the West End Community. We woke up bright and early to put together over 250 lunches filled with snacks and water. Around 30 students packed into cars and drove around the surrounding area to pass out food to the homeless. Our last stop was to the Piedmont Homeless shelter. We met several homeless children and they taught us how to play ninja. Do Better is happy to announce that they surpassed their goal and feed over 250 people today. STAY TUNED for upcoming events.
In honor of Domestic Violence awareness month, we want our Spelman Sisters to decorate their very own crowns as a reminder that you’re a queen and deserve to be treated like one! Come visit our GRL PWR table. Domestic Violence; It’s EVERYBODY’S Business.
Please join us in supporting Domestic Violence Awareness!
Domestic violence should not happen to anybody. Ever. Period. But it does – and when it does, there is help. Maybe you have lived with abuse, maybe it happened just once; maybe you work or live next to someone who is being abused right now. Whoever you are, this book can show you how and where to get help. Visit http://www.domesticviolence.org/ for more information.
In honor of Children Cancer awareness month, GRL PWR sold pink and gold wristbands in an effort to raise awareness. Each year in the U.S. there are approximately 13,400 children between the ages of birth and 19 years of age who are diagnosed with cancer. About one in 300 boys and one in 333 girls will develop cancer before their 20th birthday. In 1998, about 2500 died of cancer, thus making cancer the most common cause of death by disease for children and adolescents in America.
