For All Women

I usually watch Oprah with a side of crackers, due to the extra cheese factor, but today she managed to impress even cynical me. I only caught the last ten minutes, but it featured a video called The Girl Effect that I strongly encourage you to watch. Then, if you feel moved to take action, you can donate to the For All Women Registry, which provides medical supplies to midwives, offers microloans to women, and purchases supplies for girls so they can attend school fully prepared, just to name a few of the gifts listed. It's a great way to give alternatively at Christmas while helping to change the life of a girl in a developing country.
