MIAMI (January 17, 2018) – Miami Girls Foundation and Awesome Foundation Miami partner to celebrate Miami women and their communities during Women’s History Month. Miami Girls Are Awesome! campaign is looking for Miami women passionate about making their city a better place and will award series of grants to community-changing, innovative ideas by local women.
A woman or a girl, who has a project or a plan that meets a need, makes a positive impact, inspires people, or addresses an issue of importance to a community has a chance to receive $1000 to finance her initiative.
Natalia Martinez-Kalinina of Awesome Foundation Miami said: “In our experience with Awesome Foundation MIAMI over the past 5+ years, we have seen just how surprisingly far a small infusion of funds and support can go into proving or growing a grassroots. Women in Miami are a creative, impassioned, problem-solving engine and we are excited to focus a campaign on the ideas they have to promote local innovation, bridge an opportunity gap, or showcase something in our city from a new perspective.”
Brittany Jarrin, Managing Director of Miami Girls Foundation said: “Since its founding in 2015 Miami Girls Foundation has highlighted over 100 Miami women making a positive change in their local communities and around the world. Our partnership with the Awesome Foundation for Miami Girls Are Awesome! campaign is a celebration of female leaders, role models and change makers in every neighborhood of Miami and our commitment to support their initiatives. We want to let every Miami girl know that her city cares and it is a great time to be a woman in Miami.”
