When we learned a girl's self-esteem peaks at age 91 and only 4% of women describe themselves as beautiful2, we knew we had to do something about this confidence crisis.
30% of the girls who have a grade point average above 4.0 do not think they are smart enough for their dream career.3
We believe confident girls and women can lead more purposeful, thriving lives and are the key to strong families and communities. Gives is a partnership between our Consultants, Customers, Hostesses and employees working together to support nonprofits aligned to our mission.
