Change the Lives of 10 Girls Today – December 10, 2008

The Gift Of Education 2009 School Year Campaign

This year, we’want to see how powerful social media can be.

This is our second annual Gift of Education Campaign. Last year, Mothers Fighting For Others collected $4000 and was able to place six girls at Saint Monica Children’s Home for Girls into a private school for the 2008 school year. Two went into a Boarding High School, and four went to a private elementary school to better prepare themselves for their High School Exams.

This year, ten girls will be returning or entering High School. It is our mission to make sure that each of them can attend High School. High School isn’t free, and the cost to put ten girls through a year of High School is too much for Father Augustine to afford. If the money is not raised, the girls will be forced to stay home at the orphanage.

We won’t let this happen.

The Gift Of Education 2009 School Year Campaign

We need your help. 

We have raised $4266 so far. $9000 is our goal. $900 per girl, that’s it. $900 will pay for one year of High School Fees, boarding, food, books, and all her personal belongings while she attends the High School she is excepted into. That’s it.

We need $5000. We need 500 amazing people to donate $10. Will you be one of them? This gift, the Gift of Education, will change a life. It will save one too. Donate here.

At Mothers Fighting For Others, we believe that when you educate a girl, you can literally change a country. Why? Because this girl will one day be a Mother. If she is educated, she will be equipped to teach her own children.

You have now changed the lives of future generations.

Today is the day. December 10th. Help change the lives of these 10 amazing young women. $10 is all we ask today. We can change their future!

Donate your $10 by clicking on the button on the right (or here) to donate through PayPal!

    I put $10 on it (lunch money)

    You all are doing the heavy lifting. Love the video. Good luck!

    Echoing Brad Coy – this is lunch money. Or a couple of overpriced coffees. Or an L.A. martini. Here’s to a few PB&Js — I’m in.

    If there is ANYTHING in this world that moves me…it is watching someone reach out beyond themselves and make a difference in the world. These children are precious…beautiful…and just as deserving of hope and happiness as my own four daughters. YES…I want to be a part of making a difference for these girls. ~GBU~
