Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are getting behind inspiring women experiencing financial hardship.
The couple’s Archewell Foundation has partnered with The VING Project to deliver grants totalling $1 million to women across America. They’re inviting teens aged 14 to 18 to nominate a woman who has inspired them (non-family members), and if chosen, their nominee will receive $1,000.
Now my maths sucks, but I’m pretty sure that’s 1,000 women who will receive support. The idea behind the initiative is to not only boost women, but also encourage philanthropic thinking amongst youth.
“Two things that bring me great joy are supporting women, and the spirit of giving,” the Duchess of Sussex says in a press release.
“With the return of Archetypes, Archewell Foundation and Ving have come together to create the perfect combination of these loves. By donating $1 million in grants to women in need, our hope is not to only provide support where it may be felt deepest, but also empower young adults to embrace the gift of giving at an early age. I’m very proud of this partnership and the good we hope to see come from it.”
