Since I’ve been restructuring my site, I’ve decided a “Grand Opening” is in order. I’m already working with a PR firm to get the word out and I’m brainstorming announcement ideas and cleaning up the shop this week in preparation. However, there is still one missing piece. When I first started Girls Can’t WHAT? I envisioned being able to take some of the profit and invest it back into the lives of other women. I’ve donated to random charities along the way, but not consistently. Now that GCW is up and running on it’s own and all my bills are paid, I think it’s time to put something a little more structured in place.
I’ve written before that one of my life’s goals is to give away one million dollars. I’ve already started that goal, but I have a LONG way to go. That’s a lot of cash! So beginning May 1 (that’s tomorrow), I’m going to start giving 10% of every sale to charity. My problem is I don’t know which one to pick. There are a lot of really good womens organizations out there. I may just select a handful and rotate them monthly or divide the monies up at the end of the year among them (since sales are seasonal this makes more sense). So I’m asking you all for suggestions. Post your favorites in the comments and I will do some investigating.
