At Something Social, we believe what goes around comes around. We also believe in the golden rule (and something that’s arguably more important than the previous belief), treat others the way you want to be treated. So that’s why we started #SomethingSignificant. Every month, we’re going to share with you a new way to give back. Whether it’s volunteering at a local food drive, or spreading awareness about an issue close to your heart, your Something Social team is here to encourage you to do #SomethingSignificant.
Many of Something Social’s clients are involved in social impact projects that connect to the heart and mission of their company. Cozy East Coaster, Love Quotes NYC, is no exception. In addition to donating 10% of net profits to International Children’s Charities, Love Quotes gives buyers the option to donate $20 from each scarf to the incredibly impactful charity, PowHERful Foundation.
Women from high-income backgrounds are five times as likely to have a college degree than women from low-income backgrounds. College is expensive, but this issue goes far beyond the price tag. Girls from low-income backgrounds are less likely to receive the skills, tools, and opportunities needed to obtain a higher education degree, and go on to become a successful individual in society. Not obtaining a degree places countless opportunities out of reach.

PowHERful Foundation wants to establish education as the “ultimate equalizer,” working to give their girls the tools, advice, and support they need to get into school, get ahead, and get on to the path to a happy personal life and fulfilling career. Hardworking young women deserve access to the resources necessary to succeed, regardless of their background, and this is your opportunity to get involved.
Most of the girls they work with are the first in their families to pursue higher education. With over four thousand girls served, PowHERful aims to be the people in their lives who can get them to and through college, there for every challenge and accomplishment, facilitating useful connections and experiences to help them along a trajectory of achievement.
