My daughter is turning 12 in just a couple of weeks, and she is launching a great fundraiser for Because I Am a Girl! Her goal is to raise $1200 and Plan Canada will match her donations for a total of $4800. This will give four scholarships for girls in developing countries to ensure that they stay in school. She was moved to have this fundraiser by watching this video from The Girl Effect:
It really hit her because the age of girl they use when everything changes is 12. I think she realized that just because of where she is born, has enabled her to live the great life she has. She is determined to help other girls her age in the world to help them gain an education and therefore a better life for themselves, their families, and their community.
I am so proud of her!!
