We started LitWorld LitClubs in 2008 to make sure girls who live in really hard places can find support from friends, mentors and the power of literacy. Now, our Clubs are all around the world. Girls really cherish the safe spaces for emotional and intellectual journeying they can do when in a LitClub. With this crowdrise fundraiser, I can make LitClubs possible for more girls around the world, and here in the United States. With this funding, we can support our partners on the ground to provide girls of middle school age with books, notebooks, technology and writing tools, all resources that can change their lives forever. It is amazing how a simple idea like a LitClub can be lifesaving. Literacy is a tool, that once someone has it, can forever protect, by providing information, and empower, by giving voice to her story. Let's stand up for girls today by giving them the chance to stand up forever for their life dreams with the power of literacy!
