Thank you for taking the time to read about my cause! I'm writing today to bring a small but very significant issue to light. Nowadays, there are many big causes that need attention and donations but in February I will run for a smaller and sometimes forgotten cause. I will run for the protection of human rights for the women of Sierra Leone. These girls, future mothers, sisters, activists and leaders, need our awareness and help. Everyday, the basic rights of these girls are violated via female genital mutilation. My very good friend, Dr. Nina Smart (herself an author, writer, artist and activist), has been brave enough to stand up for these women and create safe houses, schools and programs to educate them and protect them. Her program is called SWF -Servicing Wild Flowers. Please help me raise funds for her small but very significant cause. I will think about each of the girls for every mile of my 26 mile run (I need their motivation as much as they need our support!!) Thank you for YOUR support. Any amount is not too small :)
