Help American Girl donate up to $1 Million to Charities and win your very own My American Girl Doll!

To foster a spirit of goodwill and help make the world a brighter place American Girl's Shine On Now™ program is a new charitable effort that harnesses the collective power of girls to help others in need!  Starting today through July 31, 2010, American Girl is calling on girls across the country to help the company give $1 million in clothes, books, dolls, and money to the following four organizations: Kids in Distressed Situations, Save the Children U.S.A., National Association of Children’s Hospitals and Related Institutions, and National Wildlife Federation.
Simply visit and receive a free star(s) that girls can donate to help American Girl reach its goal of collecting one million stars by the end of the program. In addition, every time you donate a free star (you can donate up to 100 each day!), your name will be automatically entered in a daily drawing to win a new My American Girl™ doll.

As part of the Shine On Now initiative and to further encourage girls to let their spirits shine, American Girl is also launching a brand-new virtual campus, Innerstar University™—a fun, safe online world where girls learn to be their best through a variety of games, quizzes, and other enriching activities that help boost their confidence and strength. Access to the new virtual world is free with each 18-inch My American GirI doll—the company’s newly enhanced contemporary product line that allows a girl to create a special doll as unique as she is.

I am proud to be an official Parent-Partner for American Girl and Shine On Now. Through my partnership with American Girl and Shine On Now, American Girl will donate an automatic $1000 stars in my name! I am also honored to be able to select a deserving girl to receive her very own My American Girl doll! Do you know a deserving girl who would love her very own My American GirI™ doll? All you have to do is become a follower of Solutions Sleuth Blog and leave me a comment here describing your nomination (what activities the girl is involved in, how she helps others, etc.) - without referencing the girl’s identity. The winner will be encouraged to videotape/photograph the moment as she gives the doll to the girl.   All comments from the previous Shine On Now post will be counted in this contest.  Winner will be chosen an the end of the campaign on July 31, 2010.

Thank you American Girl for being an amazing company that truly cares about girls and making the world a better place, and not just about making a buck. American Girl stands for celebrating a girl's inner star - that little whisper inside that encourages her to stand tall, reach high and dream big. With American Girl's' new cause realated inititave, Shine on Now, we can encourage our girls to become their very best today, so they'll grow up to be the women who make a difference tomorrow.
