Black girls in March
Order a glass of Aslina Umsasane, a Black owned wine, at Penny's RVA or purchase a bottle from RichWine RVA, both Black owned local businesses in Richmond and 10% of the sale will be donated to Girls For A Change during the month of March.
Our Legacy Wall is going to be a three-dimensional installation full of inspiration and encouragement - reasons why our work is important. Throughout the space of our building, these Girls For A Change branded flowers, made from engraved acrylic, will list each donor's name and a personal word of encouragement directly to Black girls.
