BROOKLYN, NY — Aiesha Turman, Founder and Director, of the New York-based non-profit, the Black Girl Project (www.blackgirlproject.org), announced today the organization devoted to women and girls will be beginning a new fundraising initiative this winter. The first phase of the group’s drive comes with the release of a series of t-shirts available for purchase via Skreened.com.
“We’re grateful for all of the support we continue to receive,” says Aiesha. “We hope these tees bring joy to the person who wears it, as they were a joy to create.”
The Black Girl Project director and independent filmmaker designed a series of t-shirts that represent bold, beautiful and powerful women both real and from fiction. The shirts come in a variety of colors and all of the proceeds go to providing workshops that provide participants with skills to empower themselves and their communities. With the holidays just weeks away, Turman suggests the tees would make a great gift.
After the success of their first ever Sisterhood Summit (http://sisterhoodsummit.blackgirlproject.org) in October which saw 50 young women and girls participate in over 20 workshops on topics ranging from personal missions to sexual health and the release of their free college guide e-book, The Black Girl Project is currently fundraising to expand their upcoming programming to reach the populations they serve outside of the NY Metro area.
