If Girls Ran the World
In case you missed it, I have been fortunate enough to "work" with If Girls Ran the World through my SweatPink ambassadorship with the mission to raise money for Save the Children. You can read more in my initial post HERE but in a nutshell, my October goal is to run 125 miles and raise $250 to well....Save the Children.
Rewind many, many years ago...okay, maybe not that long...and I was a young, caring child watching TV in the living room while lying on the floor. The blue carpet, the wood paneled walls, the plaid couch, and me seeing commercials about children in poorer countries needing our help. Hungry children. Sick children. Children in need and it touched my heart. Their commercials saying that you could help a starving child by sponsoring them for pennies a day was something I wanted to do. I told myself, when I am older, I am going to do that! I am going to make a difference.
Those commercials are no longer seen by me. Not necessarily because they aren't there but this now older lady in her 40's has no cable but still wants to change the world - one life at a time - and children...and women...still hold a special place in my heart.
How amazing is it that I now have the opportunity to do something. Yes, I can and have been making donations to make a difference but now I have the chance to take that small ripple of action and make it a wave. Won't you join me today?
