The GIRLS WHO ROCK concert fundraiser at Gramercy Theatre was an unbelievable finale to Internet Week New York! The show was incredibly moving–after Ajit George, Director of Shanti Bhavan, our partner school in India, shared the story of the girls we’re sponsoring (we even Skyped some of them in!)–someone in the audience, who wishes to remain anonymous, pledged to match all donations received online, up to $5,000! So, we need your help to make this happen! Please share this link with friends and family to show them why any little donation goes a long way.
Why a $10 Donation to the GIRLS WHO ROCK Razoo Page is Worth It!
1. Donating the cost of a meal, $10, turns into $20! That in itself provides school supplies for a girl for a year. Every year of education that a girl receives in developing world countries changes her future exponentially.
2. You get a free song. Students from the Park Slope Rock School wrote and recorded an original theme song for GIRLS WHO ROCK 2012, called “Here Comes the Light.” They performed it on Gramercy Theatre to a cheering crowd, and if you donate online, we’ll send it to you.
3. You’ll be co-sponsor to an amazing group of girls in India, and you can build a relationship as involved as you would like. You’ll know exactly where 100% of your money goes. The girls we sponsor will be introduced on shesthefirst.org, you can leave notes for them, and we’ll occasionally get to Skype. You might even want to take a trip to visit them at Shanti Bhavan one day!
4. They’ll never forget you. Just watch this:
