Thanks to all who attended the fundraiser for our Graceland Girls Saturday night at the Hard Rock in Boston. It was a lot of fun and a portion of ticket sales goes to the 4-year tuition of our two Maragima girls who are now attending Graceland Girls School and getting the high school education they deserve. We are nearing our goal of $12,000 ($1,500 a year, per girl, for four years of school)! Thanks to Adam Wolfsdorf for his kind heart and The Energy for the great music, making it an amazing evening all around!
Of course, we’d love to find a more long-term solution to the issue of girl education that attacks the root of the problem and breaks the cycle of poverty once and for all. We are in the midst of seeking out both corporate and non-profit partners to create an ongoing fund that would go toward, not only high school tuition, but important policy advocacy work that will create wide-spread, permanent change. If you are interested or know of someone who is, please contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
