Empowered Flower Girl (EFG) is celebrating those who make a difference in the lives of young people through mentoring. In honor of the 2013 National Mentoring Month observance, EFG is hosting its annual MenTEES: T-shirts for a Cause Campaign.
Empowered Flower Girl will donate 25% of all Empowered Flower Girl clothing sales (plus a matching donation) through Feb. 20 to a nonprofit mentoring organization serving youth.
“2013 marks the third year for us hosting this campaign,” said Rasheda Kamaria, founder and chief empowering officer for Empowered Flower Girl. “As a long-time mentor, I have experienced the difference that mentoring makes in the life of a young person. Being a positive role model for youth also has a significant impact on the mentor. I encourage any caring adult with a big heart and a little time to consider it.”
The 2013 National Mentoring Month partners are:
Alternatives for Girls
Mentoring Youth Network
Sisters Who ARe Powerful (SWAP)
Uniting Neighborhoods & Inspiring Today’s Youth (UNITY)
Young Entrepreneur Series (YES)
Wayne County 4-H Mentoring
