Have you ever wondered how you can transform your normal girl’s night into something impactful? Read on to learn how you can plan the perfect girl’s night AND support Humanity and Hope in the process!
Hi! My name is Kate and I’m the founder of Global Girls Night. Global Girls Night is a simple idea to turn your regular girl’s nights into a global force for good. Global Girls Night is the combination of some of my favorite things: my girlfriends (who I couldn’t survive without) + wine (which, lets face it, I wouldn’t want to survive without) + the fact that women banded together in unity could make a global impact and change the world. I am so excited that Humanity & Hope United is one of the organizations that Global Girls Night is supporting. Ready to host? Here’s how you can support H&H by hosting a Global Girls Night:
• Sign up at www.globalgirlsnight.com/host and pick Humanity and Hope as the charity to support! Set a date and invite your gal pals. When the night rolls around, you provide the food/snacks.
• Whatever your friends would normally pick up (a bottle of wine/crackers &cheese/cookies), they take that money & donate to the charity you picked. You’ll have a specific donation link sent to you when you sign up.
• Have your regular girl’s night & show a 2 min video (we send it to you) to your pals about Humanity and Hope. Gal pals donate to the charity if they feel so inclined and viola! You just did a fund raising event in your sweatpants while drinking wine with your best gals.
Top 3 Tips For Hosting a Girls Night
Set the mood. Vibe is key and you don’t have to spend a fortune to create a really cozy “girls night in” vibe. My favorite trick is to light candles — if you are on a budget, head to a dollar store — they’ve got a ton of candles for, you guessed it: ONE DOLLAR! Dim the lights and light some candles. Easy and takes about 2.5 seconds.
Tell your friends what you’re wearing. Haha, that might sound funny, but it’s something I find really important when hosting a girls night. Shoot a text and let them know what the attire for the evening is. For me, 99% of the time, this is what my text says: “Come in your comfiest clothes. I’m in sweat pants, messy bun and haven’t showered in two days.” True story.
Easy snacks. And I mean “easy” in two ways. Easy to prepare and also easy to eat. There is nothing worse than wanting to chow down but not having the appropriate means to do so. I love small little “bite-sized” things that you can pop in your mouth and there is no awkward lingering over something just trying to get a bite. Also, having small plates that people can put their choices on and then settle back into their comfy spot is key. Here are a few of my favorite bite-sized and easy snacks for your girls night: Trader Joe’s Onion Tartlets. Popcorn. Pigs in a blanket. Sliced Cheese & Salami with crackers. Chocolate covered pretzels. Actually, chocolate covered anything. My all time favorite trick is getting the Baker’s Dipping Chocolate (I prefer the Real Milk Chocolate to the Dark Chocolate but you do you) that melts in the microwave. It’s the easiest because you literally just melt the chocolate in the microwave and then dip whatever you want. Strawberries, banana slices, pretzels, almonds, there are so many options. Dip your heart out and then place dipped items on wax paper, parchment or just a paper plate. Because really, who always has wax paper or parchment paper on hand? Pop your newly dipped items in the fridge and you’re good to go in no time. These are a CROWD pleaser and it takes practically zero baking or cooking ability and leaves no mess.
