Girls Inc. of Orange County Online Fundraiser

Girls Inc. of Orange County (GIOC) girls are at risk and need your help! Luckily, the organization’s first ever online fundraiser gives YOU the chance to do your part and donate so that the organization may continue providing online learning resources to combat the significant loss of learning during this time in addition to helping girls make heathy decisions while assuring them that they are not alone. The online fundraiser will begin on Monday, May 4, running all week long through Monday, May 11.

COVD 19 Teen Volunteer Opportunities

Because of COVID-19 and with schools and community centers closed for the remainder of the school year, these girls are at risk of falling behind in addition to many now having to take on more responsibilities at home.  Most of the girls that Girls Inc. of Orange County supports live in poverty, with 80% living in households with less than $50,000 in annual income, magnifying the stress and uncertainty of this time.
 
With all that is going on in our world, Girls Inc. of Orange County remains committed to inspiring Orange County’s girls to be strong, smart and bold. Donations from GIOC’s online fundraiser will make all the difference to the girls who are counting on GIOC. 

With the community coming together to support these young girls, the organization will be able to further develop the online learning resources created to ensure girls do not fall behind academically.  GIOC has already implemented online programming on GIOC’s YouTube channel – with videos for all age groups with topics such as read-aloud stories, positive self-talk, practicing kindness, fitness, nutrition, how to use Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides, and so much more. 
 
Not only does donating help Girls Inc. girls during this critical time, but it will provide you with an opportunity to do something positive during this otherwise stressful and unknown time, resulting in a feeling of purpose and self-worth and also likely reducing anxiety.  Plus, Tuesday, May 5 (the second day of the fundraiser) is Giving Tuesday, making for an even more perfect opportunity to give back!
