It’s March 8th, and in case you weren’t aware, that means it’s International Women’s Day. 

That also means I’m going to ask you to take three minutes of your time today to watch this kick-ass video and bring your A-game to the table by supporting a group of women who will be transforming our world if we all get behind them. We’re talking about 600 million girls in the developing world that need us right now. You can’t hear that number and not be struck by the enormity of it. 

Which is why you’re going to watch this spectacular video right now …

…and be totally blown away. Welcome to knowing about The Girl Effect.

Founded by the Nike Foundation, it’s a movement of hundreds of thousands of organizations and individuals around the globe who are committed to ending poverty by investing in young girls.

Maya Angelou once said, “When you know better, you do better.” So let’s do this. Let’s do better by supporting the lives of adolescent girls and ultimately honoring the best within ourselves and each other.
