I thought I'd let people know about PLAN's Because I Am A Girl campaign,to feed 15 children which is working ti directly help girls overcome gender inequality in 3rd world countries. They are also teaching men that its not just women who need to stand up for women's equal rights, they too need to see they can help. http://www.becauseiamagirl.com.au
At the moment they also are running from cup to ccrop hunger appeal, where the UN will multilpy any donation x8. This is because of the 'hunger gap', where the new crops aren't ready and they've run out of last year's. $17 can provide more than 254kg of food, enough to feed 15 children for a month or a family of 5 for 3 months, so please donate what you can.Thanks
Thank you for sharing this important cause. I sent out an invitation to other members here, posted it to Twitter, FaceBook and MySpace to do my small part in getting the word out.
It sounds like a wonderful organization and I am glad you made me aware of it. I added one of their videos to the Feminine Divine Group on YouTube and their mission statement below really resonated with me.
We work to empower children and communities to overcome poverty. We are dedicated to child rights and actively involve children, their families and communities in all of our work. We have no religious or political agenda and work at the grass roots to transform the world for children.
I will certainly go and check this out and thanks for posting. Blessings
I had never heard of this group but after this discussion was posted I check it out and passed the information along through other links.
We are doing our individual part within the beautiful collective here. I appreciate your validation for creating the group because Goddesses have added so much for my spiritual path that I hope it does the same for others. But this group is what it is because of everyone who contributes and shares with openness, trust and love as we share our paths. What a blessing that is!
