Why did you select these projects?

Everyone is so deserving of a laptop. I would love to share a laptop with Shanika because I believe in the power of energy and holistic healing, especially for communities of color who have faced so much adversity in our country (and other countries).

I’d like to donate to Sushela in Jawaja. Her work to educate women about their rights and how to fight for them reminds me of my work here in DC with Women for Women International and my volunteerism for women’s rights in my community.
