**Any additional funds raised outside of hosting the experience will go towards the non-profits Girls Inc. LA and We Have Stories to support programmatic efforts. Girls Inc. LA has a major growth initiative to expand services by reaching 2,000 new girls by 2020. We Have Stories continues its commitment to provide funding to underrepresented and marginalized storytellers and content creators.**

Everyone should have an opportunity to see women in roles they can aspire to one day be, roles that show women as strong, smart and bold. From a teacher to a fighter pilot—or a superhero. This is an opportunity to continue to empower girls to be just that.

Marvel Studios’ first female led film, "Captain Marvel” offers this type of important representation. We want to help girls from various backgrounds have the opportunity to see the film by providing tickets and renting out theaters.

Why Captain Marvel?
●     Captain Marvel is Marvel Studio’s first woman led film
●     She will be the most powerful superhero in the Marvel Cinematic Universe
●     The story adds new components to open doors for the overall Marvel Cinematic Universe
●     Unlike many female characters, her story doesn’t rely on romance and other typical woman character arcs
●     There are multiple female characters in the film that enforce diversity of women in race, careers, and talents
●     The film is co-directed and scored by women
●     The film releases on International Woman's Day during Women's History Month

We Have Stories would love your help in providing these young women from Girls Inc. LA with an opportunity to have a film experience with many elements that are female led.

Over the past month, people from all over the world have donated to our effort to take the children from Girls Inc. Los Angeles to see Marvel’s first woman led film, Captain Marvel.

In some exciting news, we have partnered with Cinépolis Theaters to create the movie experience for the children from Girls Inc. LA.

Also, we have exceeded our original goal and now have the opportunity to use the additional funds to support We Have Stories and Girls Inc. LA’s goal to expand their programs in STEM education, literacy, and math to more girls in Watts, Compton, and South LA.

Many of you have already donated, and for that we thank you! Please keep sharing the challenge with your networks to help support Girls Inc. LA and the other amazing campaigns that have been created.

Higher, further, faster.

Thank you,

Frederick Joseph and the We Have Stories Team

Hi Everyone,

I want to thank you all for donating to the Captain Marvel Challenge! Your support will help create an amazing experience for the young women from Girls Inc. LA. To date, we've raised over $7,500 for the campaign, but we still have work to do.

To get the word the word out, we are going to need your help. Which is why I'm asking that each of you share the link to the campaign with your networks via email and social media.
