This forward thinking organization of young and caring professional women does a great deal to pay it forward by mentoring and empowering teen refugee girls in Chicago. Blair and Charlotte and all the crew at GirlForward are energetic and thoughtful social entreprenuers who are doing a great service among the most marginalized in our communities. I promise your contributions are well spent by these capable hands. I have been deeply impressed by their commitment and their success in building a non-profit organization that is efficient and effective.
