American Girl’s Shine On Now! #win

American Girl is calling on girls throughout the country to help donate $1 million in clothes, books, dolls, and money to the following four great charities: Kids in Distressed Situations, National Association of Children’s Hospitals and Related Institutions, National Wildlife Federation, and Save the Children through their new website – Shine On Now.

Raising the $1 million is easy! Visit and register to become an American Girl Ambassador! You’ll get free stars starting July 13th that you can donate to help make the world a brighter place! Ambassadors can donate 100 Stars a Day! This is all FREE – yet you are doing a great thing to change the world.

To coincide with the launch of Shine On Now, American Girl is also introducing a brand-new virtual campus, Innerstar University™—a fun, safe online world where girls learn to be their best through a variety of games, quizzes, and other enriching activities that help boost their confidence and strength. Access to the new virtual world is free with each 18-inch My American Girl doll. My American Girl has been updated, allowing girls to create a doll that resembles them even more!

To me, American Girl dolls have always been a “doll” that girls can look-up to, as each doll has a unique story and background of a girl overcoming a challenge in a positive way. But I love how American Girl has found a way to use their influence in an even more positive manner! Little girls can start learning from such an early age about helping others and feeling better about themselves in the process with positive roll models like American Girl!
