Give 236: Day 236

We can all participate in this give. It takes just a minute to click, watch and give. Support one more girl to go to school in Malawi. Let’s change the way the world thinks about women and treats women. Let’s give them the hand up they need to create the life they want, not the life that is chosen for them.

Join My Village” video and $1 gets donated to educate girls in Malawi! Share it via Twitter, facebook or email and get another dollar donated. It all starts to add up. If I do it and you do it and everyone one we know just clicks – the ripple effect will start and we will all be part of raising their $100,000 goal. Even better you can call yourself “Robin Hood” as you have now taken money from the pockets of the two sponsors, General Mills and Merck and given it to girls education through Care.

Just one more quick fact if you aren’t quite yet ready to click:

“Statistically, according to UNESCO’s 2005 Education For All monitoring report, only 31% of adult women can read and write in Malawi. This is shocking when compared to men – 80% of whom are literate.”

Time Commitment: 2 minutes ( watch video, tweet & Facebook)
