Girls who give

by

Great meeting on Friday night! I am excited and inspired by our decision to focus on giving for this term’s BeWell project. I am going to post the links for Care that I was talking about. Check out all the ways you can give if this speaks to you.

I love this video- so simple and powerful…

makes it really easy. I chose to send a girl to school for one year, but there are many other options including Microloans which have been super successful.

I’m looking forward to hearing about our experiences in giving!

    Thanks for posting Jolie, and what a great idea! I love starting 2010 this way. There are so many ways we can give and get involved. This is exciting!

    I plan on scheduling something with the group once I better know what January looks like for me. In the meantime, I bought sanitary pads for 1500 African women through the link Jolie posted….this one just really stood out to me as somewhat of a basic right that is often overlooked.
