It only takes one moment to make a difference.

Walk With Us

Inspired by the iconic Morton Salt Girl, Walk Her Walk is a promise to make a positive impact in the world. It's not enough to talk about making a difference. We intend to make one.

Help Make a Difference

These five inspire us. So we’re helping to support their organizations.


    Michelle Edgar

    Transforming inner-city landscapes by empowering urban youth through music. Music Unites is a leading non-profit organization supporting music education around the world.
    Michelle Edgar

    In just one moment, Michelle Edgar knew she needed to “follow the music.” That was the advice of one of her colleagues at the time. So she quit her job to pursue a career in the music industry. And she never looked back.

    Music Unites is a leading non-profit organization supporting music education around the world. Music Unites partners with musicians, celebrity ambassadors and music sponsors to promote music projects and events at local schools – educating kids through music.

    Music Unites empowers children through donations from individuals, foundation partners, organization events and music education projects.

    Seth Maxwell

    Empowering students to bring solutions to the global water crisis.
    Seth Maxwell

    In just one moment, Seth Maxwell went from a 19-year-old college student to a powerful voice in the global water crisis. It happened over a cup of coffee and conversation with a friend, who shared photos from a recent trip to Africa showing the lack of clean, safe drinking water. At that moment, he knew he wanted to make a difference.

    So he and his friends pooled their money together – $70 total – to hand out bottled water in the streets of Los Angeles. After hearing Seth and his friends explain the crisis, most people gave the water back and in turn Seth turned $70 into $1,700 which went directly towards their first rehabilitation of a freshwater well.

    This moment was the beginning of the Thirst Project, which travels the country educating people on the global water crisis and the challenge to change it. In just seven years, they’ve raised over $8 million and provided over 300,000 people with safe, clean water and the journey continues.

    The average distance somebody walks to fresh water in the developing world is 3.75 miles - one way.

    Adarsh Alphons

    Transforming public libraries into spaces for free art classes around the nation.
    Adarsh Alphons

    Expelled from school when he was just 7 years old for drawing in class, Adarsh channeled his love of art and creativity into ProjectArt which he founded it in 2011. His goal is simple: to put paintbrushes in the hands of children who don’t have access to arts education. Today, ProjectArt is recognized as a model of change that can confront the national arts education crisis and impact youth on a larger scale.

    Today, ProjectArt is building the nation’s largest free art school – without owning a single building. ProjectArt has grown from 1 class in Harlem to 23 classes in New York, 4 in Detroit and 5 in Miami.  By 2021, their goal is be in 11 cities nationwide – the next being Chicago, Los Angeles and Pittsburgh. 

    ProjectArt has proved to be an infinitely scalable program that continually produces results. What’s more, the majority of ProjectArt students are first time library goers.  Approximately 3/4 of students end up reading books in the library. 81% of students say ProjectArt increased their self-esteem. A recent student, Quentin, stated, “ProjectArt is the best thing to ever happen to me.”

    We need folks who share our vision of a creativity empowered next generation.

    Blair Brettschneider

    In just one moment, Blair Brettschneider went from tutoring a teen refugee girl in Chicago to launching what would become GirlForward. Blair has always been passionate about working with adolescent girls, especially within immigrant and refugee communities. She now dedicates her life to help solve the five major challenges faced by refugees:  language barriers, poverty, limited/interrupted education, social isolation and a need for positive role models.

    GirlForward addresses these challenges by providing adolescent refugee girls with individual mentorship, educational programs and leadership opportunities, creating a community of support that serves as a resource and empowers girls to be strong, confident, and independent.

    In 2011, Blair was selected by the Department of State as one of two Youth Delegates to represent the United States at the UNESCO Youth Forum in Paris, specifically for her work with refugee girls. In 2013, Blair was honored as one of five recipients of the Chicago Foundation for Women Impact Awards for her work with GirlForward.
