Project Description


Beautiful Brown Girls™ is a safe space IRL community and social networking app for women of color. Members get access to best-in-class social events, and life-changing content curated to help women glow up in every aspect of life, create genuine connections, build a support system, and above all thrive.

We are raising $60K on IFundWomen to fund the development of our iOS App, and raise seed money to keep our doors open and our service offerings affordable for Black women.

Bring sisterhood right to the fingertips of every woman of color.

     OUR STORY

Beautiful Brown Girls™ revolutionizes how women of color create authentic and genuine friendships, all while growing professionally and personally in an inclusive and liberating sisterhood-focused community locally and globally.

Growing up from humble beginnings in a low-income environment, Christina knew firsthand how it feels to find your voice and support system in a world that feels against you at every turn.  Sisterhood is self-care. Having a tribe of sisters helped her identify qualities in herself that she would not have noticed if she didn't have this safe space to show up 100% as herself. 

Beautiful Brown Girls believes that Black women deserve access to safe spaces and communities that embrace, liberation, sisterhood, inclusion, and above all LOVE.

     -------------------------------------------------
     IMPACT

 

During our monthly brunch social events that provided members safe spaces to meet like-minded women and build community right in their city, we noticed a common theme among members.

Members were looking to build community daily and not just during brunch.

Like Christina members were forming life-long bonds with other members and wanted to continue this personal and professional growth day-to-day.

 

-------------------------------------------------

We aim to impact our members through unique and memorable in-person social events locally to build stronger communities, and virtual curated content focused on self-care and encouraging genuine connections through like-minded interests.

Market Potential: 42,342,898 African American Women in the US and Intl.

-------------------------------------------------

Our team of 33 women of color also all personally know the impact of showing up for one another and have all committed to the mission of creating a feel-good inclusive environment through our online community, and local community events.

-------------------------------------------------

Beautiful Brown Girls is proof of what can happen when you find your people. Not only can you bond over a delicious meal but you can strive to create a world that embraces liberation, inclusion, and runs on love, inspiration, and acceptance. 

Testimonials

As an adult, it can be hard to make friends. This creates a natural setting for that to occur. Everyone has a mutual goal of sisterhood!
Tiffany - Kansas City member  

The thing I like about this group most is, it’s very informative and empowering. I am very shy and this group allows me to be me and still get the answers to the question I have. It’s full of mentors and eager like-minded females who are willing to tell their stories and how they have progressed to a place where you may want to be. And I love the brunches and meetups.
Cere - NYC Member 

Great way to connect with other women and build a sense of community.
Lauren - NYC Member

HOW YOUR SUPPORT HELPS

We’re asking for help. If we do not reach our goal, we will need to close our operations.

Our work has always centered around the people. This campaign is no different. We’ve made intentional efforts over the years to provide resources, services, and events that serve the people we reach and we want to continue that effort.

We’re asking for funding to support:

  • Beautiful Brown Girls iOs app: Bring sisterhood right to the fingertips of every woman of color.
  • Operational costs: Improved software for growing membership 
  • Staffing: Bringing back team members who were furloughed because of COVID-19 and hire new team members to further our growth.

Goal #1: $30,000 - Covers white labeling our current Mighty Networks community platform into the Beautiful Brown Girls social network app

Goal #2: $40,000 - Cover website, software updates.

Goal #3: $60,000 - Employ more team members to further support expanding operations.
