THE CHALLENGE

For the First Impression Challenge, we asked the warriors to tell us who they are, why they want to be a Charity Warrior and what they are fighting for. This was their first opportunity to wow the Charity Warrior judges - and get the public excited about their nonprofits. We wanted to know about the “mission-moment” that called on their inner warriors, and to better understand why and how their organization is making change.

THE WINNER

Nora Allen-Wiles of Girls Rock Boston introduced us to her inner warrior inspired us to join her fight for girls.

Stay tuned! Nora will be a featured guest on a podcast with Nancy Frates, ALS Advocate.
