THE STORY:

My 25th Birthday Wish –

is to help children in Africa and Asia get access to an education!

 

On March 15th, I will be turning 25! As I look back at all the great opportunities that I've had to learn, travel, and experience the world, I am reminded that not everyone has this opportunity. Many young girls are denied access to education and grow up as second class citizens. This truth is really unsettling to me – So this Smith educated girl would like to ask my friends to skip the presents and donate to Room to Read. Room to Read "envision[s] a world in which all children can pursue a quality education, reach their full potential and contribute to their community and the world."

  • $1 puts a new book in the hands of a child
  • $25 fills a library shelf with books
  • $50 buys a bicycle for a girl to get to school
  • $100 buys school uniforms for 16 girls
  • $250 pays for a year of girls' education
  • $5,000 establishes a library

 

I believe that education really changes your life and my hope is to help 10 girls get a quality education with a fundraising goal of $2500. Please help Room to Read provide literacy and gender equality in education by contributing any amount you feel comfortable with. Don't forget: Your company may match your contribution! :) Thank you!
