Donate to support youth - and see our dance moves!

To my personal and professional friends,

My challenge today to raise as much money as I can for a cause that is dear to my heart. The most vulnerable young people in Latin America need our help, especially in the midst of COVID-19. They need to continue their education, achieve gender equality, prevent violence, and stay healthy.

This year EMpower is raising money digitally and I’m asking you to sponsor me. In exchange, my daughters and I will dazzle you with some of the awesome dance moves we have picked up during quarantine. 

Every $25 you donate buys you 1 vote for the song we dance to. $100 buys you 4 votes. Everyone who votes will get a chance to see the exclusive music video upon completion.

Here are your options:

Ahana’s pick: I Like to Move it (from the movie Madagascar)

Nyla’s pick: We Go Together (from the movie The Secret Life of Pets)

Mommy’s pick: I’m Still Standing (from the movie SING)

Type your vote into the "Message" feature when you donate. 

I’ll post the polling results daily so you can see if your song is in the lead. If not, fear not! You can always buy more votes.

Your support means a lot to us. Stay safe during these crazy times!

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.
