BENEFITING: WOMENS FUND OF GREATER BIRMINGHAM

“You educate a boy, and you're educating an individual. You educate a girl, and you're educating a village. -African Proverb” In "Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide," Nicholas Kristof argues that the whole family flourishes when girls learn to read. It's that simple. The Women's Fund of Greater Birmingham seeks to support women and their children move beyond poverty. Specifically, the Women's Fund helps women in their efforts to earn an education, gain home ownership, and acquire career skills. Recently, the Women's Fund has collaborated with Jefferson State Community College to train women in high-demand pharmacy technician careers. I'm running to create awareness and support for this non-profit. Please join me by making a donation to this worthy, local cause.
