GirlUp- Uniting Girls To Change The World
How can you say it better than that? For those of you who don't know, my daughter has chosen this wonderful organization to dedicate her time, talent and resources. I am so proud of her and her willingness to help girls around the world. It is so important for me to raise my daughter to not only appreciate the blessings in her life but to understand the world around her and do what she can to try to make a difference in another girl's life. We ALL want a more peaceful world. Giving opportunities to others to help contribute to that is amazing.
GirlUp is an innovative campaign of the United Nations Foundation. They give American girls opportunity to become global leaders and channel their energy and compassion to raise awarness and funds for United Nations programs that help some of the world's hardest-to-reach adolescent girls.
I am helping Paige reach her goal of raising $1,000. Five hundred for both us so that she can run the largest soldout 10k in the country, Atlanta Peachtree Road Race. Paige...10 years old... 10k... for a selfless act for other girls. I will run beside her to help her along the way (or perhaps she will help me? gulp!) For those of you who know Pookie, you already know that she is the sweetest little girl. If this is her at 10, I can't wait to see the woman she grows into.
