For the last 5 years, we’ve turned every GiveMN dollar donated into 10 dollars… multiplying your giving power!

Wait, For Real?!
Yes! Ripple’s aid partners have raised over $10 million dollars using our photos and films – turning each dollar you donated into 10 dollars for women and children!
Women and children in the developing world don’t get the attention (or support) they deserve. Ripple Effect Images uses the power of photography and film to jumpstart the fundraising efforts of dozens of aid organizations – completely pro bono!

That’s the Ripple Effect in action – multiplying the power of our partners to lift women and girls globally. Support Ripple today and stretch your donation dollars 10 times further!

And We Aren’t Done Yet!
This year, we’ve got a match! The first $5,000 dollars we raise through GiveMN will be doubled thanks to the generous support of the Linsmayer Family. For those of you keeping score at home, you could increase the impact of your donation by up to 20 times!

Founded By a Local Gal
Ripple founder and Minnesota native Annie Griffiths has traveled to more than 150 countries after leaving the University of Minnesota with her camera and Midwestern values.
As one of National Geographic’s first female photographers, Annie was privileged to photograph women and girls from dozens of cultures in the developing world. She witnessed what research confirms: Women pay forward any opportunity they receive to their families, their girlfriends, and their communities.
Annie started Ripple Effect Images to shine a light on innovative aid organizations that support women and children. The Ripple team includes Pulitzer, Emmy and National Humanities Medal winners. Learn more about our team, beneficiaries and impact at
