What a thrill to announce a nonprofitunity original series: She Inspires Me, a digital intersection of philanthropy and amazing girls and women in history. The idea for this series has been a few years in the making. It led to books, videos, websites and even apps, plus a deeper discovery of not only strong, smart and brave women in history but the philanthropic movements their lives inspired. Women like Helen Keller, Christa McAuliffe, Rosa Parks, Rachel Carson and Anne Frank.

Perhaps you are a history buff or you have a young girl in your life. Maybe you are a volunteer or professional in the philanthropic space, or you are interested in women’s studies. These are among the reasons I am interested in this topic. Whatever your reason, I invite you to join the conversation.

Photographer Jaime C. Moore recently wrote on the occasion of photographing her daughter dressed-up as five different women from history:

“…let’s set aside the Barbie Dolls and the Disney Princesses for just a moment, and let’s show our girls the REAL women they can be.”

Let’s do it.

Won’t you join me?

She Inspires Me debut article rolls out in July and will feature Anne Frank. Stay tuned!

If you are interested in collaborating and contributing content to She Inspires Me, I’d absolutely love to hear from you!
