Fangirl Shirts gives back to nonprofits who work to make the world a better and more equal place for girls and women. It’s one of the reasons we exist, in addition to making awesome shirts by fangirls, for fangirls.
Last year, you bought shirts. And THAT means that we donated 1% of every shirt sale to nonprofits.
For 2015, we supported two nonprofits in the USA and two in Canada. We chose organizations with both local and international focus. Here’s a little bit about them and why we think they’re awesome.
Girls Who Code – working to close the gender gap in technology and engineering, Girls Who Code runs a Summer Immersion Program to teach girls in the USA to code.
Women’s Sports Foundation – sports and physical activity are important for girls as they grow, and for women to maintain health and strength. The WSF creates leaders by ensuring all girls access to sports, including by advocating for policies and laws ensuring equity.
Because I Am A Girl Canada – girls the world over face unique barriers, and BIIAG Canada works to help girls everywhere have enough to eat, education, and a safe environment. When you invest in girls, the whole world benefits.
Canadian Women’s Foundation – working to stop violence, end poverty, end human trafficking, and to empower girls in Canada, the CWF invests in the strength of women and the dreams of girls.
