We are blessed to have everything that we need everyday. When we are thirsty, we can reach inside our refrigerator and grab a drink. We don't have that worry, but the children of Ethiopia do.
We have dedicated the next year to work with Glimmer to help bring clean water and sanitation to the people of Ethiopia. Over the next year, our goal is to raise $10,000 to build a new well for people who need clean water.
Our hashtag is #girlsforglimmer so please follow us on Twitter and watch our progress. We intend to do great things with this mission.
Here is some information on Glimmer. A Glimmer of Hope helps lifts women and children out of extreme poverty in rural Ethiopia. Using an entrepreneurial model it provides clean water, schools, health clinics and micro-finance loans, one village at a time. 100% of all donations go directly to funding these projects. Glimmer’s endowment covers all its operating expenses and even replaces credit card transaction fees. Every dollar donated through Glimmer reaches the people in need. Over the last 10 years, Glimmer has completed more than 5000 projects and improved 2.4 million lives.
