Overview
What is your cause and how will it make the world kinder?

Every young woman has a personal mountain to climb, so let’s empower girls at an early age to have the confidence to conquer any obstacle by creating a program that provides experiences, tools, and mentorship to build LASTING confidence and strength in young girls growing up with adversities.

SheLift is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that brings girls of all ages and body types together to inspire and motivate one another to try things we never thought we could do by ourselves.

Self-esteem and insecurities can be visible and invisible, but none are less important than the other.

How will you use the $10k?

Our first year fundraising goal is $130K. The cost for one girl to attend our upcoming ski retreat is $5,000. If gifted the $10,000 prize, the funds would be used towards ensuring all girls can participate in our upcoming retreat and activities all expense paid. Funds for the retreat will go towards provided adaptive ski instructors, equipment, insurance, meals and lodging.

What impact do you hope to make?

SheLift aims to provide healing and prevention of insecurities for girls facing adversities, physical and emotional.

Other Details

SheLift launched in August, 2016. We are currently fundraising towards our launch initiative to be hosted March, 2017. This initiative will invite 5 young women born with physical disabilities on an all expense paid, adaptive ski trip with 5 influential mentors. If funding exceeds our goal, we aim to host a second retreat summer 2017.

Every month, KIND supports one cause with $10,000
