Strong young women are our future. As they fight for a better world, they inspire us all.
In our own community in Bloomington, Indiana, we have a fantastic organization empowering young women: Girls Inc. of Monroe County. This nonprofit
inspires all girls to be strong, smart, and bold. We equip girls to navigate gender, economic, and social barriers and look toward a future where girls and women are empowered and part of an equitable society.
In a culture where kids are constantly connected and judged, Girls Inc. provides a place of stability and strength where young women can recognize their worth and power. They offer educational programs (everything from STEM outreach to media literacy to redefining beauty) and organized sports teams to help girls “develop the values and skills they need to become confident, productive, and responsible adults.”
When we started Inkblot, one goal was to give back to our amazing community. Each quarter, we donate to a local organization, and this past quarter, we have chosen to thank Girls Inc. of Monroe County. They do such important work in our community, and we’re honored to be able to donate to their cause.
If you find yourself in the position to give, consider Girls Inc. of Monroe County or the many other worthy organizations in your community.
