Yep. I know. That sounds way over the top. But it's not really. Stay with me here.
We'll never be able to save the whole world. But, we can save a bit of it. Those bits could (eventually) add up to the whole. I've been writing about our Adopt-A-Village project for several weeks now, at my blog, here, and at All The Single Girlfriends.
Still with me? Good. Think of all the things you CAN'T buy with 40 cents:
You can't buy a cup of coffee with 40 cents.
You can't buy a bottle of water with 40 cents.
You can't buy a lipstick for 40 cents.
Yet, if you join the Tanah Keke village, that's 40 cents a day ($12/month). That 40 cents will help women in a forgotten part of the world create a better life for themselves and their families.
Only 100 of us can join the village. And, if we choose, we can even visit the village in May. Why only 100? Because GHNI is serious about staying focused on low-cost, low-tech solutions to a village’s core problems. So they've decided that 100 partners at $12 per month provides enough funding. Achievable. Doable. Real. They're not asking for a lot. They can just do a lot. With your 40 cents a day.
