Thanks for visiting my Half the Sky read-a-thon fundraising page.
I was inspired to start raising money after reading a book called "Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide" written by Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn.
Half the Sky is about many of the great challenges facing women around the world, how women (and men) are empowering themselves and their communities to overcome these challenges and how you can get involved.
I'm raising money for Fonkoze in Haiti, which is a well-established, grassroots, microfinance organization that helps women and their families to break out of the cycle of poverty. To read more about Fonkoze, visit www.fonkoze.org.
The power of Fonkoze's microfinancing comes from micro loans that help the entire community by giving women the opportunity to go into business for themselves so no donation is too small!
If you'd like to raise money yourself as part of Loyola's Half the Sky Read-a-Thon fundraiser or you would like more information about it, visit http://www.loyno.edu/cie/half-sky-read-thon
Thanks for your donation.
