Readergirlz Hero Lindsay Giambattista!


I had to introduce the readergirlz to Lindsay Giambattista, 18, of Fort Lauderdale, FL. She was featured on I Heart Daily last week as the founder of Taylor’s Closet, an organization that allows girls in foster care to come into a "store" and shop for clothes -- free of charge. We talked to Lindsay about how awesome that is.

Read the interview here, and find out how you can make a difference in your community!
