86,402 Seconds in Ethiopia
Team Member: Jessica Barber
Hi Friends & Family,
This birthday I want to honor women that inspire me and seek to better the lives of others while pushing the boundaries of what they believe they can accomplish.
I've selected Mallory Brown's 30 for 30 campaign to fund 30 Ethopian women who will be launching their own small businesses.
Please give to honor my birthday in any amount big or small. Instead of a cup of coffee or sweet birthday gift, make a donation to change a life.
Mallory and I share the same birthday so this is a gift to two female small business owners who want to change the world. This is our opportunity to change the lives of 30 mighty women!

Sending love and gratitude!
