The fact that you are here means that you are already engaged in supporting, encouraging and helping other women & girls. THANK YOU for all that you do. If you do not feel ready to share a story today, please return whenever you are ready.

We believe in the power of every story, and we often hear that women & girls are more comfortable talking about WHY sharing stories is important rather than actually sharing their own stories. So, in a new social media campaign launched in October, we would love to hear why YOU believe in #ThePowerOfStories and why YOU think sharing stories matters. We invite you to create a 30-60 second video on your phone and post it on social media, tagging @SayItForwardNow and including the hashtags #ThePowerOfStories and #SayItForwardNow. We look forward to hearing from you!
