The Girl Effect

10 Jul

For some reason You Tube won’t let me embed this, but click here to watch a great video.

The Girl Effect is a charity organization started by the Nike Foundation and others to bring about powerful social and economic change by empowering girls (click “About”). To contribute (in gift amounts starting at $10) and learn about the projects around the world, click here. See the videos of 4 girls whose lives were changed by clicking on “Learn” from this page. Finally, click on “Fact Sheet” to read about what happens when a girl gets a chance, and what happens when she doesn’t.

(Sorry about the indirect linkies.  For some reason, this interweb universe is conspiring against me and won’t allow direct links.  Aaack!)
