Next Saturday (June 9th) my sweet girl is participating in the Starbucks Run for Women (the 1k for girls under 12) which supports Plan Canada’s “Because I am a Girl” initiative (click that link for tons of information that makes my pregnant self* get all weepy). The money raised goes towards providing clean water and food, healthcare and education, and things like birth certificate registration (to help protect against trafficking) and microfinance loans to support small businesses run by women.
Basically it’s a good thing, and if you want to sponsor Sym’s run you can donate here. Your donation is fully tax-deductible and I know Sym would appreciate your support.
* lbr, I would get weepy about it even if I WASN’T pregnant
