GlobalGiving Girl Effect Challenge

We are delighted to report that four AUDACIA participants are featured in GlobalGiving and the Girl Effect’s first annual Girl Effect Challenge. Sponsored by AUDACIA participant the Nike Foundation's Girl Effect and GlobalGiving, the goal of the Challenge is to find organizations that are unleashing the Girl Effect through girl-focused projects and provide them with increased visibility and support. Organizations selected to participate in the Challenge will fundraise and compete from October 15, 2011 – November 15, 2011 for a chance to win one of twelve featured spots on the Girl Effect fundraising page and funding from the Girl Effect Fund. To beat out the competition, participating organizations must capture the most unique donors.

We are proud to report that four AUDACIA attendees are participating in this Challenge, and we encourage you to lend your support! They are:

Afghan Institute of Learning – Transform Lives of 70,000 Afghan Adolescent Girls
The Mariposa DR Foundation – Unleash the Leader in a Girl
Plan International – Because I am a Girl
Solar Sister – Solar Sister Girls' Empowerment Program

The Challenge commences at midnight tonight. Tell your friends. To tell their friends. Every donation counts!
