You Start the Girl Effect
The SOLD Project has come a long way over the last four and a half years, and the world is starting to notice. SOLD was selected to compete in the second annual Girl Effect Challenge, a month-long campaign to earn a one-year spot on the Girl Effect fundraising page on GlobalGiving.
This is a HUGE deal. Winning would lead to significant exposure, increased credibility, and tens of thousands of dollars in donations over the next year.
Twelve winners will be chosen, but here's the fun part: Six of the winners will be chosen by YOU.
What We Need to Win
The SOLD Project is one of 69 organizations competing through GlobalGiving. At the end of the month, the six projects with the highest number of unique donors will become part of The Girl Effect. Last year, some of the winning organizations had over 800 unique donors, so that’s where the bar is set. It’s high, but we can do this!
What You Can Do
It's simple: Give $10. Then invite 10 people to give $10, too.
The SOLD Project could never have become the success it is without you. It’s because of your incredible, enthusiastic support that we’ve grown from one scholarship student to more than 130 in just four years. It’s because of you that school drop-out rates have plummeted from more than 50% to less than 5%. It’s because of you that, in the last four years, not one child in our program has gone into prostitution…and EIGHT girls have gone to high school. You’ve already made an incredible difference.
In short, you can do A LOT.
Ask your mom to give. Your uncle, your sister, boyfriend, girlfriend, professor, boss, barista, accountant, mailman—everyone you know. It all starts with you. YOU start the Girl Effect. Go.
What Is The Girl Effect?
The Girl Effect. It's what happens when girls are given an opportunity to participate. It's about the unique and indisputable potential of adolescent girls to end poverty for themselves and the world. You see, when you improve a girl's life through education, health and opportunity, these changes have a positive ripple effect. An adolescent girl has the power to stop poverty before it starts, but she needs your help. She needs information, healthcare, and education. She needs laws to change, money in her pocket, and she needs her parents, her government, and the global community to see that she is valuable.
The secret behind the Girl Effect is that it's not one large campaign – it's a movement being led by amazing, ordinary people all over the world. It's about giving you the tools and the network you need to spread the word about what girls can do and, with a little elbow grease, change the world.
