Why Positivity Matters?

Studies show that consistent positive media portrayals lead to higher self-esteem, gratitude, and generosity.

BLACK WOMEN are winning EVERY DAY 

We must know and celebrate every single one of those wins. We are breaking new barriers and gaining momentum. 

Wins For Black Girls is here to amplify the victories. 

We are taking advantage of the opportunity to fill the void of positive news through the lens of Black women. Though often marginalized, Black women can shape the depiction of how we see ourselves and how the world sees us.

Wins For Black Girls is taking back the narrative and documenting our rise!

Our platform is for Black women and those invested in the upliftment and expansion of Black women. We want women and young girls across the world to have access to our powerful and insightful content.

Why are we crowdfunding?

Our text alert platform is the foundation of our community. Yet, it is only the beginning. 

We are crowdfunding to grow our business, increase our brand awareness and expand our technological capabilities so we can create more positive Black Girl news.

In 2020, we are expanding our content to publish new and original stories about the success of Black women, launching a podcast, hosting events and creating a mobile app. 

With these funds, we will hire content writers and editors, purchase podcasting and video equipment and connect with thousands of women to grow our audience.
