Girls Inc.; Strong , Smart and Bold

I was just watching Boyz N the Hood when the Girls Inc. commercial came on. I got curious, as always and looked it up. Here is what I found out about Girls Incorporated:

Girls Incorporated® is a nonprofit organization that inspires all girls to be strong, smart, and bold. With local roots dating to 1864 and national status since 1945, Girls Inc. has responded to the changing needs of girls through research-based programs and public education efforts that empower girls to understand, value, and assert their rights. In 2006, Girls Inc. reached over 800,000 girls through Girls Inc. affiliates, our website, and educational publications.

If you have been reading my blog for a while, then you understand my obsession with making a difference in this world. I seriously believe that I was put here to help people out. During these past few days I have been thinking about where to help. I know that I definitely want to work with women to help them become stronger individuals. A couple of years ago I had the opportunity to mentor a group of junior high school girls from Sleepy Hollow middle school. We lost touch and they recently found me on Facebook. You could only imagine the awesome feeling I had knowing that they went away for college and have made it on to the Dean's list and how old I felt knowing that my girls are all grown up now.

Finding this website was what the ladies from Sex and the City would call a "cosmic chance" or what you may know as serendipity (another one of my obsessions). Just contacted them for more information on how to volunteer.
