While we all make our wish lists and swarm stores in search of gifts for our loved ones, there are tons of people, particularly teenage girls, who won’t be on the receiving end this time of year.
That’s when Project Glimmer steps in. Every year, the non-profit organization, started in 2009, collects and gifts young girls with items that will inspire and serve as a reminder that their community cares about them.

The best part is that this organization doesn’t just operate during the holiday season. Through what they call “Glimmer Drives,” Project Glimmer collects new (or like new) jewelry, accessories, beauty products and gift cards for other events, including Mother’s Day, graduations and birthdays.
