{ Girls' Globe: Help us empower women around the world! }

Last May, as the U.S. Delegate for the G(irls)20 Summit in Mexico City, I had the opportunity to meet dozens of incredible women. As I tweeted live from the conference, I "met" Julia Wiklander, the Founder of Girls' Globe, and became one of the first bloggers for this incredible organization. Julia is one of the most passionate, energetic, optimistic, and dedicated women I have ever met. And for that, I joined Girls' Globe. This was my opportunity to make a difference.

The mission of Girls’ Globe is to raise awareness and educate others about global issues concerning the rights, health, and empowerment of women and girls.

Girls’ Globe is a constantly growing network of passionate people and organizations. After one year, Girls’ Globe has grown into a network of 12 bloggers from around the world, with over 2,500 followers. We plan to expand this network with additional bloggers and organizations in 2013 as we continue to share information and raise awareness. Our goal is to create an online database of organizations working to empower women and girls, to enable creative partnerships in research, funding and development.

We recently launched a campaign to raise money to attend the Women Deliver Conference in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia in May. 

In order to attend the Women Deliver Conference, we need your support to fund our bloggers travel to Malaysia and attend the conference. With your support, we can continue to educate the community and empower girls and women around the world.

If you cannot donate, please post the link to our campaign on your Facebook and Twitter. Help us spread the word!
