Since graduating 20 years ago as an Urban Studies major in this community,The NGWCC Is the first and only source of uplifting Girls and Women of Color in this community.In the urban environment such an organization is so very necessary to show us hope, give us guidance, lay the foundation for successful futures. In my experience , observing Dr. DonnaMaria Culbreth speaking with the common people ,the community of girls and women of color in our city they readily embrace the concept she has created. This organization is a valuable community resource.To quote the eager participants "Yes!!! NGWCC IS JUST WHAT WE NEEDED"Kudos to Dr. Culbreth for bringing alive in this city a community source which Is just what the girls & women of color this urban living environment has been searching for !LMCJCNJ

This organization just mesmerizes me. They are so vibrant and taking the stage and presenting their best forward to change how we see ourselves and how we are seen. What more can I say but thank you to all of you working hard behind the scenes. We love you and we love what you do. The leader lives their mission and takes it to heart.

I am the lady you brought groceries for when my card was declined two weeks ago. Dr. Culbreth was behind me on line and was talking to me about National Girls and their new program and gave me her business card. My bank card declined my bill and I was embarrassed but she told me to hold my head up and that we are all our sisters' keepers and I will never forget how her words made me feel empowered. Then she paid for my food and when I said I couldn't take her money she said it was a donation to my family from National Girls organization and I could not stop crying and my daughters could not stop crying because she cared about our well being. When I asked to meet her when I got paid on Friday to pay her back she just said to pay it forward and help someone in need. My husband and I are making a donation for the food amount to the organization. We are still in shock because you don't find people who live their mission like she does. God bless her and this organization. She truly lives the mission of the organization to advance, celebrate, embrace and empower us and our well-being. My family and I thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Thank you for creating the talk radio show for women of color. You are bringing awareness to the world about the issues we live every day. You are applauded for your efforts to help all of us and I know its hard work that you somehow manage to do. Thank you for caring and your positive focus. As I read the reviews for the National Girls and Women of Color Council, I agree many cannot do what you are doing. This organization is a class act that continues to inspire and make me feel good. I donated to your organization because you are a beautiful group of women on a mission and with a positive agenda to save all of us.

The quality projects you are doing are great and I admire your dedication to women and girls worldwide. I have listened to your shows on visibility and enjoy the topics because they are important but we need to talk more about black women and girls. My friends and I enjoyed the show on dementia and how you focused on women of color. You said that you were developing projects to focus on seniors and we are waiting for them. We would like to see more discussions and projects for senior women of color that involve us working with younger women. We have needs that should be addressed too because they are just as diverse as the needs of the younger women. You continue working hard and moving this organization forward and remember the senior community. We would love to work with young women and bridge the gap. Thank you for all that you do with so much class and style. You got it right just keep moving forward.

I love the idea of publishing the anthology and asking women and girls to write. I submitted three poems and they were accepted. I am so hyped and cannot wait to see the final publication. This was a great idea because you are giving us a platform for our voices. I love this organization because they are true visionaries who create what most people could never dream of creating.

I'm a retired grandmother of four beautiful teenagers and have been watching your progress for a while and am amazed at how you just keep making progress. I am willing to volunteer as you continue to grow because I have to be a part of this organization. I was raised in an era where we didn't have support organizations like this. In the era we live in now and seeing how girls and women of color struggle to stay afloat in the millennium, your organization is needed to help our young people as well as all of us seniors reconnect and move forward knowing that there is hope and an organization truly passionate about helping us. Thank you for all of the great work that you are doing. I have sent an e-mail with my contact information and look forward to being a part of this wonderful organization.

I love everything you do! I love the radio show because you are talking about the things we need to talk about. Thank you for your dedication to make things better for black girls because we need as much help as we can get. Thank you for helping young women like me realize that we're so much more. Dr. Culbreth you're a woman to admire and honor because you don't ever grow tired of serving and giving your time and you created something to advance, celebrate, embrace and empower us which we needed. Dr. Culbreth always says that we should be our inspiration but what she doesn't know is that she is my inspiration and has inspired me to be inspired so she is my hero too. She has become more than my mentor, she is someone I call a friend who has helped me get over some real tough places so I am honored to nominate the national girls and women of color council because they deserve it. No matter what you're going through they find a way to help you and because of them, I'm a proud college student who is going to be a journalist when I'm done all because they believed in me when I didn' t and couldn't believe in me.

I give Dr. Donna Maria Culbreth's organization the highest rating possible. The National Girls and Women of Color Council, Inc. is uplifting women and girls who otherwise might never rise above the debilitating and disabling conditions they're in. Her mission helps them to overcome, as it redirects them to what is considered 'normal' functioning through the extraordinary enabling information and tools the organization provides. Kudos to Dr. Donna Maria Culbreth and the National Girls and Women of Color Council, Inc.

Thanks for starting this org. My daughter loves your Pillars of Character for girls and shared it with her church school class and the girls are really trying to live the pillars. I am looking forward to the expansion of your reach to other states because we need you in the south. Are you going to air a show on the Pillars of Character?

I always thought of me as being ugly because of how I look. I thought low of myself. I met Dr. Culbreath at a mall and she talked to me and my friends and helped us all realize that we were beautiful girls. and told us about the beautiful part of the national girls and women of color council for girls and then went to her car and gave us copies of the book for girls. what she didn't know was that she saved me from going the wrong way in life. I am now back in school and I have a job and take better care of myself because I saw what the beautiful section of girls was doing. I wish that Dr. Culbreath would go to schools and talk to the girls about her organization because it helped me and my friends to grow into young women on a mission to live a good quality life and have better opportunities. Thank you dr. Culbreath and the beautiful girls section of the organization.

I am excited about the town hall meeting because we need to talk about the problems girls and women of color face everyday. Girls and young women need so much help and guidance and the mission of the council is the answer to many prayers. I am looking forward to attending the town hall and am impressed by the accomplishments of the council so far. The anthology is giving us a voice to share our stories that must be told. Thank you council founders and members for starting an organization that will address our needs. Finally, we have hope.

I commend NGWCC for their classy way of bringing about change.
