The inspiration to launch this campaign came after Houston-based Solo Mujeres magazine named Nina Woman of the Year at the 11th annual Tribute to the Hispanic Woman. The event was a celebration in commemoration of the International Day of the Woman on March 8.

The Solo Mujeres campaign, benefited the next generation of Latina leaders. $11,000 went directly to women looking to expand their educational opportunities through certifications, training, studying English, or learning a new trade that will benefit their families and communities.The funds raised was presented to Solo Mujeres’ nonprofit, the Latin Women Empowerment Foundation. In honor of this being the 11th annual event, our fundraising goal was $11,000.
