New York City, NY (PRWEB) December 6, 2005
Fortune Girls®, the multi-cultural inspirational brand and product line aimed at empowering tween girls has announced the addition of eCommerce to its web site http://www.fortunegirls.net . The declaration comes just in time for the company’s introduction on “Holiday Showcase” on the America One television network.
Beginning today, the Fortune Girls® creator, a nine-year-old artist named Madison, and her mother Barbara Clarke-Ruiz will introduce Fortune Girls products as gift ideas for tween girls—-no longer kids, not quite teenagers.
Fortune Girls® is a series of cartoon-like young female characters, each with her own quirky personality, style and apt, cool name. The brand’s mission communicates and reinforces messages of empowerment and goodwill. The product touts social awareness, cultural diversity and global consciousness in a very fun way. The brand encourages tweens to recruit friends for volunteer efforts, surprise their parents with a hug, organize a clothing drive for the less fortunate or paint their fingernails in ten different colors in celebration of their uniqueness and girl power!—and to have fun while doing any task.
”We’re so thrilled to be able to offer our Fortune Girls® products,” says Clarke-Ruiz who is CEO of FG’s parent company Puppyfish LLC. “So many girls and their parents have seen the Fortune Girls on our Web site, eBay.com or have read one of the articles about the brand and subsequently inquired about how or where they can buy our products. By checking out our FGShop on the site, they’ll get to see all of our fabulous options of framed art and tees.” eCommerce allows buyers to have a secured online shopping experience versus having to battle mall madness—and just in time for holiday gift giving.
Fortune Girls® framed prints were offered on eBay as a fundraiser for Hurricane Katrina victims. Four framed artwork images have recently been donated to the Children’s Hospital of the King’s Daughters in Norfolk, VA. A portion of all proceeds from the sale of Fortune Girls® products will be sent to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, Girls, Inc. and the NAACP Scholarship Fund.

12/6 at 5 p.m.
