Friends, it's hard for me to believe that at this time a year ago I was preparing to travel to Ethiopia with ONE Moms. The journey impacted me in so many ways and today I want to announce a very special fundraiser that Asha and I have coordinated to benefit Women At Risk, an organization that helps Ethiopian women lift themselves out of prostitution by providing them with practical support, job training, and viable employment. (We met women who have benefited from this program during our site visit to the amazing fashionABLE...see photos below.)
In a nutshell: Between October 1-31, 2013, Asha and I will donate 100% of royalties on all copies of Minimalist Parenting sold through the tracking link http://bit.ly/helpwomenatrisk to Women At Risk. Also awesome? Our publisher, Bibliomotion, is stepping up and matching our donation on the first 100 copies sold as part of this fundraiser. Awesomeness.
How you can help:
1. Order the book! For yourself, for friends or family, to donate to your local library or wherever!
2. Help us spread the word! Chat on the playground, blog, tweet, post on Facebook, pin, Instagram, etc. (use the hashtag #HelpWomenAtRisk and tracking link http://bit.ly/helpwomenatrisk)! Thanks to our friends at ONE, we also have 50 copies of the book to share with bloggers who post about the initiative; learn more via the Minimalist Parenting #HelpWomenAtRisk campaign page.
Thanks so much! xoxo Christine
