OUR STORY

It is incredible how one small idea can grow into something truly special. Good for Girls Initiative is rooted in the belief that we all have an inherent responsibility to make a meaningful difference in our community. With a variety of active projects and a large volunteer staff, we harness our skills and resources to successfully achieve our goals.

 

Since our founding in 2018, we have been proud to witness how our activities have benefitted the Volusia County community and beyond. Want to take part? Contribute to our work by donating, sponsoring, or volunteering today.

Good for Girls Initiative is based in Central Florida.

GINA ELMAZI

PRESIDENT & FOUNDER

Originally from New Jersey, Gina has been a native to Port Orange since the age of 12 and even went on to attend and graduate from UCF. In 2018 she started the Volusia County Oopsie Project with the belief that every young woman should have access to feminine hygiene products in a moment's notice, because after all, we've all been there!

In her personal life, she runs her full-time business, Social Media Advertising Corporation, and spends time with her husband (married since 2006) and two kids (Bella and Vincent). Gina is making quite the impact in our communities.
