Spread the Word!-The Girl Effect

See my nice shiny new button over there? ----->

Yup, I just found out about this new cause, the Girl Effect. If you go to the site, it has a great video that explains how the Girl Effect is helping to lower poverty levels by helping girls be educated in school, get jobs, and learn about health risks.

Interesting fact:
When women and girls earn income, they reinvest 90 percent of it into their families, as compared to only 30 to 40 percent for a man.
(Chris Fortson, “Women’s Rights Vital for Developing World,” Yale News Daily 2003.)

So go on, check it out! You know you want to! And help spread the word so the world can become a better place! :)
