Empowering Girls and Women: Bridging the Charitable Giving Gap
In a world striving for gender equality, it is deeply disheartening to discover that women's and girls' organizations receive less than 2 percent of charitable giving. "What Makes You Feel Beautiful" attended the Girls and Women's International Day conference in 2023 and was confronted with these alarming statistics. This message resonates with a sense of disappointment, recognizing the urgency of addressing this issue, especially considering the disparities faced by girls and women in Hawaii.
Why We Need Your Support:
It's disappointing and alarming to see such a minimal percentage allocated to organizations that work tirelessly to uplift and empower girls and women. We have come a long way in the fight for gender equality, but there's still so much work to be done. The statistics remind us that we must do more to support these organizations and bridge the giving gap.
The needed support for "What Makes You Feel Beautiful" cannot be emphasized enough. Here are a few compelling reasons why the percentage of charitable giving to such organizations may be so low:
1. Lack of Awareness: Many people may not be aware of the incredible impact that women's and girls' organizations have on communities. Raising awareness about their work is crucial to garnering support.
2. Underestimation of Gender Disparities: Despite progress, gender disparities persist in various aspects of life, including education, healthcare, and economic opportunities. Donations to these organizations can help address these inequalities.
3. Funding Priorities: Donors often have a multitude of causes to support, and women's and girls' organizations might not always be at the forefront of their giving priorities.
How You Can Make a Difference:
Now, it's time to take action and make a difference. Here's a call to action for all of us:
1. Donate: Every contribution, no matter how small, can make a significant impact on the work of "What Makes You Feel Beautiful." Consider donating to support our initiatives.
2. Spread the Word: Share the mission and achievements of WMYFB with your friends, family, and social networks. Help raise awareness about the critical work we do.
3. Advocate for Change: Advocate for policies and initiatives that promote gender equality and support women and girls in your community.
It's time to address the stark disparity in charitable giving to women's and girls' organizations.
