Fortune Girls empowers tweens to believe in themselves and encourages them to pursue their dreams.

Fortune Girls is a multi-media brand on fire to empower tween girls! Created by a teen  and her mom, Fortune Girls is changing the world and needs your help!  Fortune Girls is on a mission to empower tween girls ages 6 to 12 all around the world through their multi-cultural Fortune Girls characters.  They aim to raise $20,000 to produce an animated short featuring the Fortune Girls characters!

Team FG is oozing with creativity and will use webisodes as a platform to discuss issues that are critical for tween girls such as bullying and self-esteem issues. They just want to entertain, make girls giggle and help them to feel good about themselves and deliver this message in a fun and engaging way! Team FG has spent a lot of time working on characters likes, dislikes, cultural backgrounds and storylines. It was important to us that these characters be more than just pretty pictures.  They wanted to create a hilarious short with a purpose. The FGs are not perfect by any stretch; but, then again, who is?

Fortune Girls has a Kickstarter campaign going on right now with only 22 days left to reach their entire goal.  Team FG needs to raise $20,000 to fund their project.  If the goal isn't reached, your credit cards are never charged.  If the goal is reached, there will be nice gifts in store for their backers.  For instance, if you pledge $1 or more, you will receive a very special thanks on the Fortune Girls Facebook page and your name will also be included in their email blog.  The gifts get larger with the more you pledge.  If you are all about empowering tween girls, I encourage you to help Fortune Girls reach their goal.
