Wonder Woman officially hits theaters today, and the reaction to the film has been overwhelmingly positive. It has left many people feeling inspired and empowered—especially women.
Because of that and because the world can always use more wonder women, a group I’m in called the Legion of Women Writers thought we’d do a fundraiser to send 70 girls from Girls Inc of NYC to see Wonder Woman. Our initial goal was $1200, which would cover the costs of holding the screening. We thought that’s where the campaign would end, but something really amazing has happened. In one day, the fundraiser earned 3 times the goal!
That’s great, but it also became a new challenge—and what wonder woman doesn’t like a challenge?
Everything over $1200 is being donated to the Girls Inc. NYC’s Annual College Shower to help freshman girls pay for college costs like tuition and textbooks. Girls Inc. is hoping to raise $15k and, who knows? Maybe we can help with that.
