As part of the national network of Girls Inc. affiliates across the United States and Canada, Girls Inc. of NYC inspires girls and young women of all socioeconomic backgrounds to be strong, smart, and successful. Girls Inc.'s gender-based educational programs for girls ages 6–18 strive to improve each participant's confidence, quality of life, and community involvement while reinforcing the importance of education as a foundation for success.
Since 1999, Girls Inc. of NYC's annual College Shower has honored participants who have graduated from high school and are making the transition to college. The event showcases the new grads' achievements and celebrates the young women with their family, friends, and other supporters. Each recent graduate also receives a duffle bag packed with college-dorm-life essentials, including USB drives, power strips, a shower caddie, sheets, towels, and an alarm clock (a $180 value).
Join G-Team and donate $10 to help Girls Inc. of NYC celebrate the achievements of young women who have recently graduated from high school and are transitioning to college. If G-Team members raise $540, then Girls Inc. of NYC can give three female graduates a duffle bag filled with college essentials at the 13th Annual College Shower. Each additional $180 raised will be used to give another graduate a duffle bag with the same items.
Unlike traditional Groupon deals, G-Team campaigns typically don't offer you a "discount" or "savings." So "buyer" beware—when you click "Buy" to donate your time or money to a worthwhile G-Team cause, the only discount you may receive is 100% off free, priceless karma. Read more about G-Team.
