This years’s annual Penguin Random House Global Walk will support Girls Write Now! On Friday, June 13, 2014, Penguins Random House employees will walk — in teams and individually — along the Hudson River Walk. Everyone who participates in the Penguin Random House Global Walk can fundraise until the morning of the walk and compete for fun prizes.
All funds raised by Penguin Random House will directly support Girls Write Now’s writing and mentoring programs. Girls Write Now provides guidance, support, and opportunities for at-risk and underserved girls from New York City’s public high schools to develop their creative, independent voices, explore careers in professional writing, and learn how to make healthy school, career and life choices. Girls Write Now’s students are 90% high need, 90% girls of color, and 20% immigrant. Together, Penguin Random House and Girls Write Now can change the future of women in publishing.
