Reminderband is proud to sponsor the GimmeMo foundation. Read on the hear our guest blogger Meaghan O’Connor relive how she got involved with GimmeMo.
I remember the first time I saw Monique Coleman while I was in New York City this past summer. A midwest girl with big city stars in my eyes, I just so happened to think that meeting a Disney Channel High School Musical star would be the highlight of my summer. We got a group picture that night, and all I remember thinking was please let her stand next to me so that I can show my mom and sisters. I had no idea that later that summer we’d meet to talk about partnering up for the journey she says she’s always been destined for. 
 
“This is something that’s never been done before… it’s about giving youth their voice back,” she said at our first meeting. 
 
I saw the passion and fire in her eyes that night, and have accepted a position on her team because I too believe in the mission—creating a real and open environment for youth to engage in conversation that they can barely find a time or place for otherwise.
 
This fall, Monique is asking teens across the country what they want Mo’ of. We’ll be taking feedback from our listeners, interacting with our guests and followers, and talking about subjects that will encourage teens to express themselves and learn without fear or embarrassment. 
 
With the added help of Reminderband, we’ll soon be spreading our message by taking it to the streets. We’ll be handing out wristbands that ask the question: What do you want Mo’ of? We’ll also be talking to and interacting with teens on a quest to become the ultimate listener and representative of our young audience.
 
So what do YOU want Mo’ of?
 
Mo’ courage?
Mo’ hope?
Mo’ strength?
Mo’ time?
Mo’ truth?
 
Because whatever it is, GimmeMo has it for you.
 
I believe in the future of GimmeMo. I believe that youth deserve a judgement-free circle to talk about things that are both real and relevant in their own lives. I believe that Monique will reach people and make lasting impressions. After all, Monique got a twenty-year-old college girl focused on a professional career to turn her head at a party, who’s to say that she won’t grab the voices of teens all across the world?

It is common for college students to roll out of messy twin beds and groan about class and the Ramen noodles they will probably eat that night. Before we groan we should realize that one in four girls in developing nations never gets a chance to go to school. Here at the Reminderband offices we found this astonishing and wanted to help. She’s The First is a not-for-profit that sponsors girls’ education in the developing world, helping them be the first in their families to graduate. In the process, She’s the First fosters leadership and self-awareness in young Americans, by inspiring them to lead creative fundraisers and correspond with sponsored students. Their efforts shape a rising generation of well-educated global leaders, future philanthropists, and cross-cultural communicators.

We have sponsored She’s The First with custom wristbands to promote their Social Media Camp; TYWLS Explorers 2012. At camp they are teaching girls of NYC to use social media to spread awareness, build support and “be the first” at anything they desire!
