Save a Life... Or Many

Many of you know that I'm a huge fan of BlogHer, a community of women who blog, and who, together, do amazing things which change the world. So it shouldn't surprise you to know that I'm really excited to support their latest efforts in the BlogHers Act initiative. Together, we are
donating to save the lives of women everywhere

There are some really cool causes. Educating women who have HIV/AIDS and helping them to take care of themselves and live longer. Supporting girls who are in school and making sure they get a meal at noon. Helping women deliver babies safely. Providing healthcare to displaced refugees. And providing care to mothers and children.

All of these causes are important. All of them can make a huge difference. And at least one of them could be affordable for you. I contributed. Will you?

We can use the power of our blogs to make a difference. And that's a good reason to blog. I, for one, am excited about this opportunity. The opportunity to use the privilages and rights I have to help someone who, only because she was born in a different country, needs my help.
