BENEFITING: Girl Rising
I've experienced 30 incredible years of awesome, and to celebrate I want to spread the love and give back.
Ever since I saw the film three years ago, Girl Rising has been dear to my heart. I truly believe that if you educate a girl, you can change the world. Girl Rising helps the 62 million girls worldwide who are not in school gain an education and break the cycle of poverty by breaking down barriers that girls disproportionately face, including gender-based violence, sex trafficking, early marriages, and domestic slavery. Instead of buying me a present — or, if you weren't planning on buying me a present, instead of buying yourself a cup of coffee today — consider donating to help another girl rise.
If you're interested in learning more, the film is currently available on Netflix and iTunes (I also own a copy and I will absolutely let you borrow it and/or watch it with you), or you can watch the trailer on YouTube.
