Girls Write Now Holiday Appeal
LES workstudy-er Whitney Jacoby is a mentor with an amazing organization called Girls Write Now. See below for a way to #BreedCompassion during the Holiday season!
I hope you don’t mind, but I am writing you today to ask for your support for something that is incredibly important to me–and to the hundreds of marginalized and underserved girls served each year by this fantastic organization. Girls Write Now is an amazingly effective non-profit that matches bright, underchallenged teen writers in NYC high schools with professional women writers for a mentoring relationship that lasts from one to four years–a relationship that changes the lives of these young women forever.
This is my third year as a mentor for GWN and it continues to be an amazing and rewarding experience! I have absolutely loved working with Shannon, now a senior in high school–being there for Shannon as she pursues her dream of being a writer has been a truly wonderful and rewarding experience. I am so proud of all the achievements I’ve witnessed Shannon accomplish–in fact, last she she received Gold Medal from the Scholastic Arts & Writing Awards. While I am sad this is our last year working together, I’m so proud and lucky to have been there for her throughout her high school career!
If you know anything about Girls Write Now, it’s that we always set the bar high—then exceed it. Be an active part of our continued success: donate today and help us reach our goal of $100,000 by December 31.
Click here to check out my page and place a donation! The smallest donation can go a long way and will go to support a truly worthy organization. Thank you so much for your time!
With all my love and gratitude,

The November 12, 2013 Gala will be a magical evening at the beautiful new Girls Club on Avenue D in Manhattan, bringing together some of the most influential changemakers in the worlds of art and culture, science, humanities, entrepreneurship and culinary arts. Guests will be treated to an evening of cocktails, seated dinner, music and an auction with stellar lots. The Grand Opening Gala will be a night to remember, with proceeds directly benefitting girls in need.
Opening this fall, the new Lower Eastside Girls Club Center for Community will enable us to expand our programs from the hundreds of girls we currently serve to thousands of girls, and their families, per year. The new 30,000 square foot space hosts a full STEM program, including a 30’ dome planetarium, a commercial kitchen for job training and culinary arts, a Center for Media and Social Justice led by Rosario Dawson, and the permanent home of The Tyra Banks TZONE, which will be every girl’s first experience at the Girls Club and the epicenter of learning for body image, entrepreneurialism and college preparedness.
