BENEFITING: Room To Read
EVENT DATE: May 11, 2013
Join me in celebrating my birthday by helping children around the world get access to education!
For my upcoming birthday in May, I reflect on the truly amazing opportunities I've had to learn, travel, and explore the world. I'm humbled by what education has provided me - knowledge, skills, freedom - but I'm also mindful that not everyone is so lucky. Not everyone is so lucky to get to attend school and learn how to read.
To celebrate my birthday, I ask that you skip the balloons and cake, and instead join me in supporting a great organization, Room to Read. This organization's goal is to work towards a day when "all children can pursue a quality education, reach their full potential and contribute to their community and the world."
Support Room to Read's work to promote literacy and gender equality in education. Contribute any amount that you're comfortable with to my fundraising goal. Maybe I'm just an idealist, maybe I'm a dreamer. But, I truly believe that together, we can change the world.
