Glamour is a powerful brand and it’s using that influence to do some good in this world. The magazine has launched Girl Project, a partnership with several nonprofits to help raise money that will be used to advance the education of young girls.
The magazine is asking readers to donate money, which will then be distributed to the nonprofits (CARE USA, Plan International USA, Girls Inc. and Communities in Schools). From there, the nonprofits will deal out the funds.
Readers — and anyone else — can make donations of $5, $25, $50, $150, $375 or more. Donations of $5 help get a girl school supplies, while donations of $25 come with a thank-you note, and $375 features direct communication with the girl receiving the help.
“Educating girls is proven to grow communities and even cut out the roots of terrorism,” said Glamour’s editor, Cindi Leive, in a statement. “The fact that a group of women in, say, Des Moines can send a girl to school in Pakistan is one of the most optimistic acts I can think of, and we’re proud to partner with these knowledgeable organizations to help make it possible.”
