Working for Women

I've just placed a widget on my sidebar from BlogHer. The goal of this widget is for women bloggers to work together in improving other womens' lives around the world. From the BlogHer newsletter:

Our goal is to find out how many women's lives we can save by blogging to raise small donations -- $10, $15, $25, $50 --for critical clinics and educational programs for women, children and girls specifically in Afghanistan, Burkina Faso, Darfur, Nepal and South Africa. Denise and Erin chose these programs in partnership with the terrific team at GlobalGiving because GlobalGiving guarantees that your money will get where they say it's going. They research their programs carefully, and send your money to a well-defined project instead of to funding general operating expenses. And -- this is my favorite part -- if you're not happy, you can get your money back. More here.

This is a worthy cause, I think. I know I'm far more inclined to give to something if it's just a small amount--and yet those $5 and $10 donations add up.

So, if you're so inclined, please click to give.
