Future Women of Influence 2012

Future Women of Influence 2012 Online Auction, in support of the Women's Foundations' Girls' Fund Location: When: Monday, August 27, 2012 to Saturday, September 08, 2012 at All Day Event Contact: Women of Influence Contact Number: 416.923.1688 Email: WebSite: WOMEN OF INFLUENCE is holding their annual nation-wide online auction this year in support of the Canadian Women's Foundation's Girls' Fund from Monday, August 27 – September 7. Future Women of Influence is about women joining together to raise money for girls' leadership in Canada. With your help, we hope to raise much needed funds in support of this worthy cause. · All proceeds from the auction fundraiser will support The Canadian Women's Foundation Girls' Fund, a charity help girls (aged nine to 13) build self-esteem, critical thinking and leadership skills. · Even though young girls today seem to have more opportunities, by age 11 many girls are less confident, happy and satisfied with their lives. And it's no wonder – girls are constantly given the message by media that they don't measure up. · The resulting pressure and negative reinforcement they face during this critical period in their lives can derail their self-esteem and judgment and shake the foundation of their future.
