Legion of Women Writers wants to send Girls Inc of NYC to see Wonder Woman, and you can help!

We’re raising money to send 70 high-school aged girls from Girls Inc. of NYC to celebrate the first standalone female superhero film and see Wonder Woman on Friday, June 9th.

Wonder Woman has been a cultural icon since her creation in 1942, and symbol to girls and boys that a woman can be strong, bold, and compassionate. Your donation will help cover movie tickets and popcorn for the girls. If we raise more than our target goal, all extra monies will be donated directly to Girls Inc of NYC.

Thank you to everyone who donated and shared this campaign! We've hit out final goal of 10k, $1200 of which was allocated towards sending 70 high-school aged girls from Girls Inc of NYC to their own screening of Wonder Woman this past Friday. The remaining money (minus gofundme fees) is going directly to Girls Inc of NYC's Annual College Shower. We're so honored that we were able to turn a last minute idea of paying for young girls to see the first stand alone female superhero film (which was also directed by a woman and is still dominating the box office in it's 2nd week) into something bigger.

Legion of Women Writers is sincerely grateful for your participation and for showing us that so many people believe that representation in media truly matters. Patty Jacovina, the VP of Operations for Girls Inc of NYC, has full access to this fundraiser and will be withdrawing the funds into their account.

Hi all! After some talk with Girls Inc of NYC, we have decided to officially stretch our goal ONE MORE TIME to $10,000.

Our initial campaign was to send 70 girls in their program to their own screening of Wonder Woman. We accomplished that within hours of launching this campaign, and knew anything over would be donated directly to Girls Inc of NYC. Soon after, we realized that extra money would be put to best use as part of their Annual College Shower, which helps freshman girls in their program pay for college expenses. We want to help them as much as possible, so kept stretching our goal, thanks to the tremendous support we have and continue to receive. If you've already donated or even if you're reading this but can't afford to do so, you can still help by sharing this campaign.

Thank you again for all your support!

Thank you SO MUCH to everyone who donated and/or shared our campaign! We've managed to top ANOTHER stretch goal. The initial $1200 (includes event costs & gofundme fees) is used to bring 70 girls to their own screening of Wonder Woman, all other monies (minus gofundme site fees) are being donated directly to Girls Inc of NYC's Annual College Shower. We'd love to keep going, so we will leave this fundraiser up til at least Monday, June 5th. We will also post an update soon breaking down how and where the donated funds are going so you can all be assured that your money is doing exactly what it was raised to do. Have a great weekend, and please keep sharing!
