For the holidays this year, I'm raising money for charity : water:
http://mycharitywater.org/christines-holiday-fundraiser

I did some research on the organization and 100% of the money raised goes directly to fund water project costs in the field.

Lack of access to clean water is an issue that causes far too many deaths (it's the 2nd leading killer of children worldwide). The effort spent on collecting water is especially damaging to women, who could use that time to earn extra income and complete their education.

I'm asking everyone to redirect any christmas gifts to this campaign instead. Thanks in advance for your support!

I Am Malala Yousafzai #InternationalDayOfTheGirl  
we're all connected

The +United Nations has declared that today, October 11th, is the International Day Of The Girl. I choose to honor today with the story of a young woman whom I didn't know until this week. Her name is Malala Yousafzai, and she is from Pakistan. This young woman (she's 14) has been fighting for the right for young women in her country to attend school despite the violent rule of the Taliban. Unfortunately, she was shot this week by the Taliban for continuing to advocate for children's education. She's currently laying in a hospital on a ventilator fighting for her life.

Malala, I may just be one woman, but I love and respect you for believing in your self and in the right for empowered women to have a place in this world.

You can find out more about her story and watch a documentary about the Swat region of Pakistan here. Note: There is graphic imagery on the video. http://www.nytimes.com/2012/10/11/world/asia/pakistan-erupts-in-anger-over-talibans-shooting-of-malala-yousafzai.html
