This is a fantastic organization, run efficiently, so all donations are truly getting to the girls it supports. The premise is that underprivileged girls get to have figure skating lessons and perform, as long as they keep a b average in school. They get extra help with schoolwork, but also coaching in life skills, including personal organization and public speaking. They are taught how to achieve and empower themselves, and that is a tremendous lesson, from dedicated volunteers and professionals in the field.
