We're Giving Back: April Partnership with GirlForward Inc.
Leah Longueville·April 03, 2019
Here at Polished Prints, we're firm believers in empowering others through our designs and our pocket books. That's why we're excited to announce our April Give Back Campaign in partnership with GirlForward.
GirlForward is more than an organization, it's a community of support dedicated to creating and enhancing opportunities for girls who have been displaced by conflict and persecution. That's why we're choosing to donate 50% of the net profits of all retail sales of our Brave Girls Club t-shirt straight to GirlForward.
This future is ours to shape together, so let's start by empowering future trailblazers right from the get go.
GirlForward is a community of support dedicated to creating and enhancing opportunities for girls who have been displaced by conflict and persecution. Through their offices located in Chicago and Austin, GirlForward directly serves over 200 girls each year. These girls represent over 16 countries around the world. These include Syria, Iraq, Nepal, D.R. Congo, Rwanda, Myanmar, and Afghanistan
We are in the midst of the biggest refugee crisis the world has ever seen. Over 65 million people worldwide have been forced to flee their homes. In conflict, girls are especially vulnerable to violence, isolation, and being kept out of school. Girls who receive resettlement in the United States face huge challenges: poverty, language barrier, limited or disrupted education, isolation, and trauma. But when girls succeed, everyone benefits. That's where GirlForward comes in.
