GirlKIND holds sixth annual Every Girl Matters Day in Abbotsford

Event takes place Thursday, Oct. 11 at The Reach Gallery Museum

GirlKIND and The Reach Gallery Museum present the sixth annual Every Girl Matters Day on Thursday, Oct. 11.

The free event runs from 4 to 5 p.m. at The Reach (32388 Veterans Way). It is held in conjunction with the UN’s Day of the Girl, which calls on communities around the world to recognize the injustices girls face and to celebrate their abilities.

The event includes the Sticky Notes Project, which involves participants writing down their favourite quote or inspiring words. The notes will be posted on display at The Reach throughout October and will later be converted into a book.

Every Girl Matters Day also includes a draw for a Samsung Galaxy Tablet, swag bags for the first 50 attendees, henna art, and refreshments.

GirlKIND is a charitable organization that is working to combat gender discrimination, fight gendercide and raise awareness of these issues.
