    Several nonprofits have some new spending money thanks to the generosity of some women in Dallas.

    The power of these women is Monday's Tell Me Something Good.

    The women founded the new Village Giving Circle at Dallas Women's Foundation. The group came together back in the spring to fund organizations and initiatives that positively impact the African-American community in North Texas.

    Less than a year later, the women raised $122,000 and gave grants to nine nonprofits.
