Plan Ireland is a wonderful organization dedicated to promoting childs rights to end child poverty.
Their newest campaign “Because I am a Girl” is truly special. This campaigns aim is to fight gender inequality, promote girls’ rights and lift millions of girls out of poverty.
I implore you to follow the links and learn more about this very worthy cause. There are many ways YOU can help.
To do my part, all proceeds from every pair of Sprout Earrings sold in my shop will be donated to the Because I am a Girl campaign.
“Everything we shut our eyes to, everything we run away from, everything we deny, denigrate or despise, serves to defeat us in the end. What seems nasty, painful, evil, can become a source of beauty, joy, and strength, if faced with an open mind,” by Rigoberta Menchú Tum (1959-), Guatemalan social reformer, Nobel Peace Prize laureate.
