Last night I was relaxing and watching TV when an ad came on that caught my attention.
In the ad I saw a lady sink under the water and stop breathing. She was drowning. Just when it looked like it was too late someone reached their hand under the water and pulled her to the surface.
As this lady reached the surface she opened her eyes and took a breath. She then swam under the water and took hold of another drown victim and pulled them safely to the top of the water.
You can view what I saw on television in the video clip below.
The message conveyed through this film clip was that through providing women and girls with:
- health care,
- opportunities to bring in an income,
- opportunities to be a leader in their community
that lasting change is brought into their family and their community.
Through setting women free from poverty and empowering them to be all that they can be in their own community and nation means that many other lives will be touched in positive ways, both in the present and in the future.
What can you do to help release girls and women from poverty?
You can find out more about the organization “CARE” and see ways that you can help and make a difference.
Let’s partner together and make this world a better place!
Until next time, Remember to Enjoy Life, Smile at a Stranger and Make a Difference in the World!
