In an interview on ‘Good Morning America’, Taylor Richardson, 14, explained, “I wanted all girls, especially girls of colour, to know they can be whatever they want to be when they grow up and also can struggle and have flaws and still be successful in life.”
The campaign, which began in November 2017, had a goal of raising US$15,000 but at the time of this reporting, the initiative has raised US$21,692.
The money raised will be used towards movie tickets and a private screening of ‘A Wrinkle In Time’. She also accounted for snacks for the audience in her fundraising goal.
Since the 14-year-old girl passed her goal, she will be using the extra money to buy 100 girls a copy of the book and the rest will go toward the Astronaut StarBright Space Camp scholarship.
