Your $5 donation will go to one of the following nonprofit organizations (you have the ability to choose):
- Every Mother Counts: Model Christy Turlington Burns founded this activist group that seeks to improve medical care for mothers around the world by training professionals, improving transportation to care facilities, and donating crucial supplies to clinics. The organization has arranged grants that have improved mother mortality rates in Tanzania, Haiti, and India.
- Dress for Success: Wearing the appropriate attire for a job interview is crucial for prospective employees. For over 20 years, the caregivers at Dress for Success have been helping women realize their professional goals by providing apparel they might not otherwise be able to afford. The nonprofit accepts clothing donations and then distributes them to countries and areas that may not have wardrobe resources on hand.
- Anita Borg Institute for Women and Technology: Since 1987, this social enterprise has pursued the mission statement of founder Anita Borg by putting women in a position to excel in the technology field. The group provides resources for education in coding and diversity both in the U.S. and abroad. In India, they organize career fairs for women only, offering companies the chance to improve their gender diversity in the workforce.
- School Girls Unite (Global Campaign for Education U.S.): This nonprofit tackles education discrimination among young women in developing countries. In Mali, Africa, for example, only one in four girls make it to 7th grade. School Girls Unite subsidizes their education, often at a cost as little as $75 per child, and follows the recipients to encourage them to complete their education.
- Jeremiah Program: When families break apart, poverty can rush in and overwhelm a single mom with hungry dependents, forcing them to rely on public assistance. In 1993, Michael J. O’Connell saw this problem and founded Jeremiah Program in Minneapolis to fix it. Jeremiah Program provides a career-track college education for single moms and a combination of early childhood education, housing, and life skills training for families to find a path out of poverty, two generations at a time.
- Women's Bean Project: From the outside, Women’s Bean Project (WBP) may seem like a place to buy quality dry food such as bean soups, cookie mixes, and teas—which it certainly is—but inside you’ll find a different story. Founded in 1989, Women’s Bean Project provides stable jobs for chronically underemployed and often previously incarcerated women.
