I have decided to run the 5k in the SF Marathon to raise money for an amazing cause and to get in shape.
I recently read this powerful, eye-opening book "Half the Sky" by Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn; it had a huge impact on me and I want to make a difference!
CARE is a leading humanitarian organization fighting global poverty. We place special focus on working alongside poor women because, equipped with the proper resources, women have the power to help whole families and entire communities escape poverty. Women are at the heart of CARE's community-based efforts to improve basic education, prevent the spread of disease, increase access to clean water and sanitation, expand economic opportunity and protect natural resources. CARE also delivers emergency aid to survivors of war and natural disasters, and helps people rebuild their lives. (www.care.org)
So give up your daily Starbucks for a week, and donate today to fight global povety!
