The couple matched the donations of $129,926 from a fundraiser organized by SussexSquad – a group of dedicated fans and supporters – in honor of their birthdays, Meghan’s August 4th and Harry’s September 15th.
As patron of Smart Works, which helps women get back into the workforce through mentoring, professional interview and wardrobe coaching, Meghan designed a work wear capsule collection in collaboration with four partners.
Since becoming a Duchess, her activism and participation in world issues, particularly where women are concerned, continue undeterred. The patronages and charities the Duchess has taken on reflect who she is and what she believes and stands for.
At the end of the day, when people donate money, time or any other resource to a charitable end, they want to see that resource judiciously utilized properly translated to results.
Instead of unifying with the Royals, too many reporters and correspondents use their platform to sabotage the charity organizations simply because Duchess Meghan will not conform to their demands for access to their private life and be allowed to take photos of Master Archie.
There is no doubt that these two WOC are among the most powerful women in the world today. They also share a genuine commitment to making the world a better place for everyone through their involvement in philanthropy.
Before the wedding, Meghan was eager to “hit the ground running” with her charitable efforts. Since her marriage to Prince Harry in May 2018, she has already had a global impact.
