We can't change EVERYTHING but together we can change SOMETHING.
We are asking you to help us by asking friends and family to redirect birthday giving from YOU to a young woman in need. We call this campaign "More Important than Coffee" because the original idea was to ask friends to give up coffee for a week and let those savings become the donation. We ask you to ask your friends to divert gift giving and some personal spending for a few days around your birthday and to donate the savings to help a person in need.
Will you mark your birthday (or anniversary) in this unique way this year?
Please ask us how to do this!!
(We are currently raising funds for Bathsheba; a young woman identified as a potential community leader in the community of Nyamwigura, Tanzania. Together we can empower her through education to impact the lives of girls in her community for good.)
