Great Website For A Cause

One of the great things about Facebook is finding out about other websites so quickly.  I saw this in my News feed this morning and wanted to take a moment to post it here to help raise awareness.

The Girl Store:  Buy a Girl Her Life Back

If you have ever traveled abroad and had the opportunity to see a completely different culture, country and way of life,  it is not only interesting and eye opening, but often shocking.  For some people things such as child marriages or sex slavery can be a reality. A harsh conclusion for them.  We don't get to pick where we are born.  The mere fact that I was born in a country with choices and with freedom that so many others do not have is something I strive not to forget.  So many others are not that fortunate.  From day one, an option of a choice to live the life they would choose for themselves is not in the cards for them.

What I love about this website is how simple it is to become involved. Something so little as a $5 donation to fund a lunch set so a girl can go to school adds up and makes a difference.

If you have a moment, please check out this website and share where you can.

Have a great day!
