I’m really pumped for today’s post which is in honor of my wife Dina. She will be participating in a walk-a-thon on Saturday, May 9th, raising money for the Lower East Side Girls Club. The Lower Eastside Girls Club provides a place where girls and young women 8-23 can grow, learn, have fun, and develop confidence in themselves and their ability to make a difference in the world. By delivering strong arts, literacy, science, health and leadership programs they provide girls with the vision to plan – and the tools to build – their future. All Girls Club programs develop environmental, entrepreneurial and ethical leadership in the girls they serve.
I’m super proud of Dina and her constant do-good efforts towards giving back, but feel particularly psyched about this cause which empowers women starting from youth: where confidence building and self-esteem begin to emerge. If you can give $5, $10, $25, any amount, it will go directly toward health-based community initiatives at the Girls Club, which aren’t just for the girls in the programs, but also for their older sisters, younger sisters, moms and grandmas. Every donation, no matter the size is helpful.
You can donate money directly online by clicking the “Sponsor Me” button on Dina’s personal fundraising page. She appreciates anything you can give, and if you’re interested in learning more about the walk-a-thon or getting involved with the club yourself, head over to their site.
Thank you in advance for your support!
