This morning our Co-Founder and CEO Melinda Masson attended Voice for Girls 2018 put on by the Girl Scouts of Orange County. This event is a celebration of female leadership. It is held each year as an interactive think tank where Orange County’s key influencers are able to weigh in on how they can best assist young girls in the community in achieving their potential.
FBI Special Agent Gina Osborn, who is in charge of Cyber and Computer Forensics, was inspiring! As the keynote speaker, she shared highlights from her career in a male-dominated field of federal law enforcement. Gina is responsible for collaborating with 17 law enforcement agencies in Southern California to bring the Regional Computer Forensics Laboratory to fruition in Orange County.
In addition, four exceptional Girl Scouts were also honored for being leaders in their community. As a company that was founded by two powerful female leaders, President Lori Jackson and CEO Melinda Masson, Scripsense is proud to continue to support the rise of young women today! If you are a powerful leader looking to support your community through a digital fundraising marketplace, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more.
“When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, ‘Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.” -Fred Rogers
Look for the helpers and you will find inspiring stories! Here are a few of our favorite tales of heroic American Red Cross helpers providing relief to those affected by Hurricane Irma and Hurricane Harvey.
During Hurricane Irma, a 19 year old named Andrew Enos stepped up and managed an emergency shelter for 950 evacuees. The shelter was at North Miami High School and run through the American Red Cross. Working on 1.5 – 2 hours sleep to lead shelter efforts proved stressful for Enos, but very rewarding.

In addition to providing relief for Hurricane Irma, Enos volunteered at shelters in Texas to provide aid from Hurricane Harvey. Enos’ actions are heroic and inspire others to volunteer and give back to their communities!
The American Red Cross responds to an emergency every 8 minutes, bringing help and hope to those affected by disasters. 95% of Red Cross disaster relief workers are volunteers. Their efforts are saving lives across the United States and Puerto Rico providing hurricane relief from Harvey, Irma and Maria.

These helpful efforts have inspired us here at scripsense!

His good looks, fashionable style, philanthropic efforts and charismatic energy will be missed by us all.
