Double Your Donation!


Many of you know I've been working on a new non-profit, Million Girl Army, for about a year now. And what a year it's been! We are now nearly finished with all the framework and curriculum testing that needed to take place for us to launch nationwide. As a result, we plan to do so in January 2016! 

Once again, to help us raise the money needed to spread across the country next year, a couple generous donors have offered to match all funds raised before the end of 2015, UP TO $30,000! To date, we've raised $5895 so we are on our way. I need your help spreading the word. 

Donations are tax deductible and can be made out to Million Girl Army and sent to Box 1335 Ennis, MT 59729 or made under the "Support the Army" page on our website. Every bit helps and anything you can give during this time is DOUBLED!

For those of you who missed what I've been up to, my inspiration behind starting this organization and what it's all about, here's the original video to tell you a little about it. For up to date news, like our Facebook page.

Please help me reach the goal in the amount of time I have left! Many thanks for all your support.

Women Need Equal Employment Opportunities


Women work two-thirds of the world's working hours, produce half of the world's food, but earn only 10% of the world's income and own less than one percent of the world's property. On average, women earn half of what men earn.

In order to achieve gender equality, women and men must have equal employment opportunities and receive equal pay.

Investing in Girls Helps Fight Extreme Poverty


Gender equality is one of the most effective ways to fight extreme poverty and build healthier, wealthier, and more educated communities.

Studies show that women reinvest up to 90% of their incomes back into their families, a stark contrast to the 30-40% reinvested by men. Statistics also show mothers provide better nutrition, health care, and nurturing time on their children. As a result, investing in women and girls creates long-term social and economic benefits for all individuals, their communities, and the world as a whole.

So why aren’t countries investing more in their young girls?

One of the major obstacles to women’s empowerment, as outlined in the The Millennium Declaration (Adopted by the United Nations in 2000)  are threats and acts of violence against women. The elimination of all forms of violence against women and girls is recognized as integral to development.

According to UN Women, “As many as 7 in 10 women around the world report having experienced physical and/or sexual violence at some point in their lifetime.” Statistics from a United Nations Economic and Social Council report on the status of women indicate that violence against women and girls is a universal phenomenon, irrespective of income, class, and culture.

Changing traditions, stereotypes, fear, and cultures to begin to change the landscape for girls worldwide is a challenge only overcome when people work together to speak for the voiceless women around the world.

Million Girl Army teaches young girls in the developed world what it looks like to be a young girl in another country, inspiring the next generation to use their privileged positions to change the world for the girls who cannot speak for themselves.

Will you join us?

Together we can change the world for girls because ALL GIRLS MATTER!
