Since It’s Cool To Be Smart/ Saving Our Daughters series was created based on the film Daddy’s Little Girls, the Saving Our Daughters series targets teen girls from ages 9-18 years of age, from single parent households that have an interest in music, television and film. The teens that benefit the most from the series have included Boys & Girls Club, selected high school teen girls, and teen girls that have had problems in the juvenile system.
The It’s Cool To Be Smart /Saving Our Daughters organization has received funding from the Department of Human Resources, The K.I.N.G Foundation, and Sean Garrett and numerous celebrities from the Saving Our Daughters Book series. Since our organization’s primary mission is to empower young girls to become future business leaders by creating opportunities with influential women & men in the entertainment industry we rely heavily on our board members to connect our organization with many members of the music, film and television community to help us reach our goals of creating total 500 book clubs for girls in Atlanta, New York, Chicago and Los Angeles.
