Girl power + girls matter +

imagesGirls around the world need out help. I like to think I’m aware of things but this number is truly scarios. Of the one billion people around the world living in extreme poverty, 70% are women and girls. And while we might moan, groan, complain and whine about going to school, 20 million girls never do because they can’t or aren’t allowed. Girls also face more violence than boys do.

So what can we do? You can join the sisterhood of BECAUSE I AM A GIRL from Plan Canada an international aid group. Super kewl website.

  3. Thanks so much. I don’t post every day. About every ten. I try to make sure I’ve got something to share with people that might make them think or try to be better. I find it all a bit complicated and daunting sometimes, but you’ve got to start somewhere!
