#GivingTuesdayNOW

Thank You for being an amazing ambassador of POWER On Heels Fund, Inc., without you we could not fulfill our mission of the advancement of Latinas in the workplace and limit the impact of pay-gap inequity without your support.

You may have read that our friends at GivingTuesday have announced the kick off of #GivingTuesdayNow—a global day of giving and unity that will take place on May 5, 2020, as an emergency response to the unprecedented need caused by COVID-19.

It’s because of your past support that we’d like you to be the first to know that we’re getting ready to launch our #GivingTuesdayNow campaign so that we can continue our work in spite of the crisis we are facing in our community.

POWER On Heels Fund, Inc. is excited to be participating in the #Nonprofit Matching-Fund Initiative which allows us to maximize our campaign with available fund match pools. We are hoping for your support and the power of your social networks to make this a big success!

We will launch officially to the masses on May 5 but would love your support to help us start strong and build momentum starting today.

What can you do to help? If you were planning to give, every dollar you donate will get matched starting today: https://now.firespring.com/nonprofits/power-on-heels-fund-inc

Plus, here are four easy ways to help spread the word to your network:

  • Forward the link to 10 friends and invite them to contribute.
  • Post the link to your Facebook page or profile (tag your friends to encourage others to do the same and get some social traction).
  • Post to LinkedIn.
  • Tweet about your support for our campaign.

Your support is everything. Thank you in advance for helping our campaign be as successful as possible.

Latina Equal Pay Day 2019

Today is #LatinaEqualpayDay & we’re joined by an inspiring tribe of #Latinas to discuss the Gender Pay Gap, it’s social impact, what they face daily in the workplace and what they’re doing to get their fair share.

#LatinaEqualpayDay #DemandMore #PaycheckFairness #LatinxEqualPay


At POWER On Heels Fund, Inc., it is #LatinaEqualPayDay every day!👠👠

It is where we desire to have real social impact. Minimizing the #GenderPayGap & #Inequity they face daily in the marketplace…one #LATINA at a time.

More than 50 years after the passage of the Equal Pay Act of 1963, Latina’s typically earn only 54 cents for every dollar earned by white, non-Hispanic men and must work nearly 23 months to earn what white men earn in 12 months. In Texas, the rate is 44 cents.

What was our mission today?
👠 Build awareness
👠 Share DATA
👠 Provide Tools & Solutions
👠 To #change the future
