The Girl that Changed the World

Don't let the title of this blog fool you. I think both boys and girls will change the world, men and women. And what group or force might be that massive influence? The one that finally tips the scale on a grassroots level and begins the eradication hunger, ends the cycle of abuse and suffering of living beings, cares for this beautiful planet earth as it so badly needs?  Girls! I know it's just one strategy, but it is one that gives me A LOT of hope! Girls.

During this season so focused on giving and getting, I've been really proud of my girl and how she wants to give. After seeing this video and feeling the outrage and disbelief of the plight of girls around the world, she pledged all her Christmas money to show her belief in girls, and deep desire to make the world beautiful for all.

I'm pledging too because it's the very best strategy I've heard of.

While this video may be too heavy for young kids, you may want to take a moment and see if it makes as much sense to you as it does to me. And maybe those few dollars that you might spend on our own daughter or son, you could flow it out, into the world.

Below are some great links to contribute, there are many organizations to choose from. 

The previous post, below, has a very compelling video too.
