"FearlesslyGIRL is a perfect fit for what I believe in and want to commit myself to - it’s a great movement dedicated to creating strong women. I’ve tried my best to be a good role model for my two younger sisters and FearlesslyGIRL will give me a very unique opportunity to inspire, help, encourage and be a big sister to a whole generation of girls. I cherish the opportunity to help FearlesslyGIRL take this extraordinary movement of empowering young women globally."

FG x HBO
We were so excited to co-host a FearlesslyGiRL Summit with HBO to promote Lindsey Vonn's documentary, The Final Season on HBO.
We invited girls to the Griffin Club in Los Angeles to target the unique challenges girls face and provide them with the tools and confidence to create a kinder, more supportive girl world. Girls participated in group discussions and activities wit Kate and Lindsay all designed to boost self-esteem and create a sense of sisterhood and support.
