others. One single act of good can change a life.

Donations can range from $1, $5, $10, $25, $50 and up! At each level, you get Fortune Girls custom designed goodies, including: T-Shirts, Sweatshirts, Bobble head Dolls, Sneakers, and a Skateboard.

As a "High School Musical" alum, first ever UN Youth Champion, and the founder GimmeMo.com, I'm dedicated to empowering today's youth! I know first-hand the unique challenges young people face, especially tween girls. Building confidence and helping a girl to believe in herself changes her outlook on life. Fortune Girls is a special and powerful brand because they've mastered a formula that will both entertain and educate, while having a ton of fun! Fortune Girls celebrates diversity, and fosters global thinking! So, I guess that means "I'm a Fortune Girl!" – Monique Coleman, Actress and Philanthropist
