I'm fundraising for EMpower!

I am taking on the EM GIVES Challenge in an effort to empower 1,000 of the most marginalized young people in Latin America. As COVID-19 continues to overwhelm this region, I am stepping up to support the vulnerable youth that have been particularly affected by the global pandemic. 

I'm fundraising with meditation classes + for every $500 raised, I’ll share an epically cute video of my baby Frenchie Sergeant Pepper … top 5 donors win a playdate!

Join me as I take on this challenge and help me achieve my fundraising goal by donating to my page! 

About EMpower:

EMpower – The Emerging Markets Foundation is a global philanthropic foundation focused on empowering marginalized young people in emerging market countries.

They partner with local, community-based organizations in 15 EM countries that enable young people’s successful transition into productive, healthy adulthood, developing the next generation of leaders.
