When I filled in my credit-card information, I did something more than donate to a cause. I joined a movement. With a swift gift of $1,000, I helped to change how female entrepreneurs in Canada are financed, supported and celebrated.
I easily could have put that same money toward an all-inclusive getaway – something I will likely long for during the mid-February harshness of a Canadian winter. But I didn’t. Instead, I supported SheEO, which offers something better than sunshine: a bold vision to alter the funding landscape for female entrepreneurs.
