Fund Me 2 Do Good

THE SHORT STORY

Who am I? My name is Emilie. I\'m a social entrepreneur who started a non-profit organization in Colombia (South America) to teach conflict resolution and peace-building skills to children and youth.

What is my goal? To spread peace education throughout Latin America. 

What is my plan? To study an MBA (Master of Business Administration), in order to gain the management skills I will need to achieve my goal.

Why am I telling you this? An MBA isn\'t cheap, and starting a non-profit organization doesn\'t exactly bring in a lot of dough! I need as much help as I can get in order to be able to afford these studies, and this includes YOUR small or large contributions, and those of the people in your social networks.

What can YOU do NOW?
