Strong Girls, Strong World

Tomorrow is International Day of the Girl, and we are using it as a final push to wrap up my big fundraising giveaway for Girls Gotta Run Foundation. GGRF helps support and empowers young female runners in Ethiopia. GGRF is helping young women in Ethiopia pursue their running dreams, and at the same time helping them to find pride, self-respect, confidence, a sense of well-being and personal power. Training allows the girls to stay in school, avoid early marriage, and to enhance their personal economic opportunities. The girls also become role models in their families and communities to other women and younger girls. I am a proud board member of GGRF! 

The last EIGHT remaining prizes in my giveaway will be drawn this weekend. To be entered, all you have to do is GO HERE AND DONATE at least $10. Originally, every $5 donated was one entry into the giveaway. To celebrate Day of the Girl tomorrow, I will DOUBLE the entries into the drawing you earn for any donation of $10 or more!!!

Another way to support GGRF is to order one of these awesome shirts! To celebrate Day of the Girl, Activyst is kindly donating 10% of their profits all month long from the sales of their STRONG GIRLS STRONG WORLD t-shirt to our programs in Ethiopia. The Bekoji Project girls love the shirts! Shirts can be ordered here.

And here I am in mine. :) I love the message of Strong Girls Strong World!

 Please help in this final push of my fundraiser by sharing the link to my giveaway post, and by making a donation if you can. Every little bit will help and go to an awesome cause!!
