THE STORY:

Ellen wrote -

The RaiseforWomen challenge is awesome, and whether you donate to this fundraiser or another, THANK YOU.

I'm supporting Room to Read because as a bibliophile, my education is very important to me. I am so thankful for my education and what it has empowered me to do, and I want to do whatever I can to help kids get the education they need to go on and do awesome things. 

Give these kids a good education, and they just might blow your mind.

The goal might be ambitious, but every little bit helps! If you can, please support the work of Room to Read! Or, even check out some of the other fundraisers. I won't be offended-- it's all for a good cause. :)

 

Room To Read wrote -

For girls living in developing countries, the roadmap to a better life is riddled with obstacles. Cultural bias, household economics and safety concerns often lead girls to drop out of school well before their male peers—limiting their options for the future.

But despite all odds, countless girls around the globe are changing the story and claiming their right to a quality education. For these girls, education is about more than earning a diploma. It unlocks a world of undiscovered possibilities—allowing a girl to dream of a brighter future for herself and her family, and to develop the skills necessary to turn that dream into reality.
