Change Your Homepage, Help Create Change for Girls

The following is a post sponsored by Yahoo! Every time someone clicks here to make Yahoo! their homepage, they're showing their support for Girls For A Change.

I was selected for this opportunity by Clever Girls Collective, which endorses Blog With Integrity, as I do.

I'm a cause-driven blogger, meaning I'm always looking for ways to use my social networks and blogs to help, spread the word and create change. 

Today, I'm asking you to do something that takes only a few moments, but can help girls across the country and even internationally. 

When you change your homepage to Yahoo!, that company will donate $10 to Girls for Change, a nonprofit that  empowers girls. Yahoo! will donate up to $10,000 for anyone that does this by July 30. 

This is the first time I'd heard of Girls for Change, so I explored the group a bit. 

Girls for Change targets girls in low-income areas. From the website:
Today, in cities across the country, Girl Action Teams of approximately 10 girls and two volunteer women Coaches meet to identify an issue or problem that they want to impact. The Coaches then teach the girls essential project planning and execution skills to aid them in designing and implementing their social change project. Every year thousands of girls learn how to tackle community problems such as gang violence, low self-esteem, and environmental degradation.

I love everything about this mission, and really loved that I could help by just changing my homepage, and can urge others to do so too.

For the change of homepage to qualify, you must change your homepage using this link. It takes just a few moments.
