Mission
To help low-income children, particularly homeless, foster, and orphan children and youth, achieve success and fulfillment and give back.

Helping kids has a three-generation history in Anne’s family. When an orphanage in which she had an interest folded, her grandfather took in five orphans and brought them up, with the help of her grandmother and aunt. As a little girl, Anne helped bathe, dress, and feed baby orphans at a children’s home and school her parents founded in rural New Mexico. A few years ago, one of those orphans paid her a surprise visit in Wisconsin.

Since starting her fund in 2004, Anne has volunteered with or supported a number of organizations for at-risk children, either personally or through the fund. “But,” she says, “I want to help more children.” Getting money to do this was the purpose of her World Record climb of Mt. Kilimanjaro in 2015 as an 85-years-young great-grandmother. It’s not as absurd as it sounds. Anne says, “I’m not a professional climber, but I have always loved hiking.” At 76, Anne climbed Pikes Peak and four other mountains over 14,000 feet. She has climbed mountains in the western United States and Mexico, as well as Ayers Rock in Australia, the Great Pyramid in Egypt and the pyramid in Mexico City.

In 2019, Anne plans to be the oldest person to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro, again to benefit children and youth through building her foundation. She continues to train by climbing Mummy Mountain daily with her little dog, as well as other mountains around Arizona. Just before going to Africa, she plans to spend time in Colorado to acclimate to a higher altitude and climb taller peaks. Anne comments, “If I combine my love of climbing mountains with my passion for helping kids, what could be better?”

She speaks to those of us who are struggling through the grudges we hold, especially in areas that are very hurtful and hard to touch, areas with the most painful scars. Through sharing her personal experience of forgiving the unforgivable such as the murder of her dearest loved ones and sexual abuse from different family members, she has been an open book. With regal grace, Melanie speaks from her heart with complete vulnerability and authenticity while sharing her real experience of wrestling with God. It can be easily related by each and every one of us.

You will find the power to truly forgive and have the freedom to truly live and love.
Melanie Washington leads a ministry for youth in prison by inspiring them to forgive and love themselves and experience the forgiveness and love of God.

Prancing Ponies Foundation’s mission is ‘Creating Women Leaders One Girl at a Time’.
There are millions of organizations that service the ‘cradle to college’ path however, very few focus on the ‘college to career’ transition which is most critical to ensuring girls are prepared to step into corporate leadership roles as quickly as possible.

We provide 3rd year STEM girls the training to accelerate their careers into leadership positions. The training provided would normally take girls 5 – 8 years to learn on the job. We no longer want our girls to waste this time, so we train them before they graduate college on:
• How to run an affective meeting
• Preparing and give presentations
• Managing a budget and analyze a P&L
• Negotiating their salary
• …and receive monthly mentoring for the rest of their lives

In 2015, Prancing Ponies Foundation began with the goal to teach 1000 girls leadership skills by 2020, we will accomplish this goal through 4 programs:
Acceleration Workshops (Jan 2019): Held quarterly, these interactive workshops will provide our Academy graduates continuing education supporting their accelerated career growth to corporate leadership roles.
Champions Mentoring Program (Feb 2019): Allow mentors to register and provide detailed profiles for the areas in which they can help to create strong mentor/mentee relations.
3rd annual summer Leadership Acceleration Academy & Internship (June 2019): Graduates receive help with company placement, life-long mentoring and educational support.
Online Leadership Academy for high school girls (Sep 2019): This high school club takes the curriculum from our summer Academy and brings it to classrooms and after-school programs and allows us to reach thousands of underserved girls nationally.

Our dream is to see 250 Women CEOs running S&P 500 companies. We believe we can change the numbers of Women represented in leadership from a decrease of 25% in 2018 to an increase of 50% in the next 10 years.
The Prancing Ponies Academy is free to all accepted girls. This includes housing, stipends, technology, transportation, and other critical items. Support us today and watch your investment grow into a future Woman Leader!

About Unplanned Good

We promote adoption as a positive option for those facing unplanned pregnancies. Open adoption can be so very good (and beautiful!) for all involved but all too often, young women think they have only two options; abortion or single parenting.
Unplanned Good is reaching out to both teens and their parents, to let them know that adoption is an option. Studies have shown that girls are 50% more likely to see their pregnancy through and make an adoption plan when an adult suggests this path. We reach both audiences through social media, newsletters, conference workshops and speaking engagements. We try to get adult mentors, teachers and parents to suggest adoption, and we try to get young women to consider this option when facing unplanned pregnancy. The testimonials on our web site are there to give them more information about open adoption today.
Please visit our site at www.UnplannedGood.org/ and encourage others to see it. Read the heartfelt personal stories there. You, too, will be convinced about the beauty of open adoption.

We Help Underprivileged Kids in Latin America become Entrepreneurs Using their Local Resources.

At Wisdom for Kids, we pride ourselves with our relentless dedication to our primary mission of helping underprivileged kids in Latin America become entrepreneurs by using their local resources.

The Foundation is made up of volunteers, called Angels, that:

Identify pockets of kids in need that are in depressed areas
Group the kids into two different age groups
Look for a place to gather with all those kids – with their parents-, in the largest number possible
Deliver one 2 hour session on Entrepreneurship every week to the kids – New groups every week are a priority –
Find two additional Angels to be responsible for
Onboard and trains them to do the same

The two-hour training sessions are conducted with the highest energy levels and motivation in order to inspire the kids. Music, dance, games, physical activities, and storytelling are just some of the techniques that are being used. The sessions inspire the kids to become entrepreneurs using easily accessible resources, with the support of their parents.

Hard Data:

The goal of Wisdom for Kids is to Change Latin America through their children:

81 Million kids living in poverty today, which makes up almost 51% of all children in Latin America
22 Million of them have almost no access to drinking water at all

In rural areas,

3 out of 4 kids live in poverty (in urban areas, only 1 out of 4)
90% of indigenous populations are poor

The higher the number of children per home is, the more poverty they’re subjected to.
