Girls have BIG ideas.
When you GiveBIG,
you inspire BIG transformation.
Over 70% of participants at Reel Grrls receive scholarship support. Your contribution makes it possible to offer programs on a pay-what-you-can basis.
Girls from as far away as Skykomish and Mount Vernon participated in Reel Grrls programs this year, your contribution makes it possible for continued access to media tools and training to girls from rural communities.
Women comprised just 9 percent of the directors of the top 250 domestic grossing ﬁlms of 2012. ReelGrrls inspires girls to step into leadership roles in the media.
Our future leaders are young women who can look with a critical eye at media and can tell their own stories using the tools of media and technology. Reel Grrls teaches media literacy and digital storytelling in its award-winning programs.
Imagine if every time you passed a billboard or saw a commercial on TV, you saw affirming images of women and girls being valued and celebrated. This vision is why we do the work we do, and why your participation in GiveBig means so much to us!
