Maria's Space: Help Empower Our Sisters in Malawi

My friend Maria over at Maria's Space has this great post about the Women of Malawi and how we can help them:

Here's how you can get involved:

~ Visit Join My Village and join one of ten village teams to benefit approximately 75 villages in Malawi
~ As a village team member, you will get to know the women and families in Malawi through frequent updates, photos and stories
~ You can also track how dollars are creating change and improving lives in Malawi
~ Through simple online activities - answering a quiz question, telling a friend about Join My Village, or joining a village team - $1 will be unlocked by General Mills and will go to CARE's poverty fighting programs in the Malawi villages (limit of 3 activities per person per day, and $15,000 per online village team - or $150,000 in total)
~ Additionally, General Mills will match personal contributions dollar-for-dollar for up to $50 per donor, $15,000 per village team or $150,000 in total
~ CARE will distribute all funds raised directly to Malawi to provide economic opportunities for women and increase access to quality education for girls

I've already signed up and joined a village and it amazes me that with all they are going through, the faces of these women are smiling and beautiful.

Please head on over to Maria's site to read the whol story:
