The Girl Effect

I've just come across this really simple and beautiful piece of animation for a really good cause.

Something about it really moved me. I think I'm really grateful to have everything I've got in life. To begin with... to be living in the First World as an educated female is something that can be so easily overlooked. By "educated", I mean: I can read and write. That's it. Until I realized what my life could've been like if I'd been born under different circumstances.

So I've just made a donation to provide life skills training and financial education for a girl in Tanzania. There are other projects in other countries that you can make a contribution too. Find out about The Girl Effect here and how you can help empower a girl on her way to being a woman in the poorest parts of this world... Every little bit counts.

And here's the animation that explains a little bit more about why this is important.
