Want to help publish this great book, I Am More Than Just a Girl ? It provides resources, information, advice and creative exercises to empower women with the knowledge to make their own informed decisions.
I won’t go into depressing statistics of how often young women are abused, assaulted and oppressed. You don’t need me to remind you that until recently women had very little rights as equals and in some countries are still considered objects that can be owned. Society encourages us to be outwardly successful, to make lots of money and then we will be happy. We are not often encouraged tofind inner success in the forms of knowledge, happiness and emotional health.
The author, Leah Oviedo, wants to give a free copy of her book to organizations that work with youth in the USA. With your support we can make this happen. 150 books will be given (for free) to youth organizations. 50 books will be given (for free) to young women that are unable to join such organizations. The remaining 100 will be sold and the profit used to buy more books. Later this year Leah would like to have the book translated into other languages so more young women can have access to the book. Currently, young women and parents can read the book online for free,http://morethanagirl.webs.com
An important part of life is to help others feel empowered. We need a total of $1,800 to accomplish our goal. Shout it out on your Facebook pages, donate $5 online or send a check (email: investing in women@ gmail .com for the address). Visit, http://morethanagirl.webs.com to see what perks you will receive for helping publish this important book. If you will join, our goal is to raise the full amount by the end of March.
Read the book for free and pass it on! Share it with parents, aunts, uncles, grandparents, older sisters and brothers, teachers, community leaders, youth organizations and young women. Now is the time to take action! We can no longer wait for someone else to empower the next generation of women. As the saying goes, YOU must be the change you want in this world. If you believe this book is a must have for young women, get involved today. To follow the progress of the campaign subscribe to the authors blog(https://writewhatuknow.wordpress.com).
Pass this on to 10 other people and together we can make the world a brighter place.

Ha! Well if you like the book please share it with a young woman or a youth organization. That would be some great support.
Alas, no rich rellies here. But good news is, I have a long weekend & reading your work & doing the book review is my aim. So that’s what I can do, I reckon. No FB or YT account either, or twitter or flickr n all the rest of it. You can’t seem to get much exposure without all that, these days!
Cheers to your WONDERFUL mission 🙂
Thank you Walter. That is a big help and I appreciate you getting involved. If we can get this fundraiser to the right people we will have all $1,800 is no time!
Leah. I would love to help in some way. I will start by posting on my blog and joining your Facebook page. Good luck. I am rooting for you. 🙂
