tiney1woman I'll lay in my bed at nights often thinking about the millions of girls worldwide that are facing injustices. Being raped, sold, entered into bondage labor (slavery), early childhood marriages etc. When I first watched the Girl Rising film @girlrisingofficial I saw myself in each of these 9 girls. Not only that, having an education, I knew the kind of changes that would be possibly for them if they were granted the opportunity. I then started to think about how many girls that has these exact stories. The stories they shared were saddening and I knew their stories was just a tip of the iceberg. From there onward all I could think about is what is it that I can do to help. Pennies 4 girls was something out of a cartoon (the concept of a bulb going on symbolizing an idea was present) is a huge dream for me. A dream still in motion. A dream challenging people of the world in donating their pennies that will educate girls worldwide that are deprived of an education. How can girls be less than others because they are born a girl Oh no. I'm not standing for that️ Through Girl Rising, I get updates about our progress and even though I'm eager to get an update that this issue has been solved completely, I know it will take time. It also won't be an easy task but all I know is, I have the rest of my life to get the job done. Never thought the day would come that I would find something that I have no problem dying for. I spend my time educating girls worldwide and I'm proud to say this is my life. I LOVE IT!!! You see, "in these bodies we will live, in these bodies we will die and where you invest your love, you invest your life (Mumford & Sons)." Huge thanks again @hughcevans for telling my story and your countless efforts in getting the world involve in ending global poverty🏾🏾🏾 I am a proud GL️BAL CITIZEN and I hope you all will become one too. 2d

tiney1woman This breaks my heart True reality is beyond the steps of our homes. Beyond the clicks of our tv remote. There's so much in the world "we" can change but only when we realize our life is not just about us will we ever start creating change. When God provides you with more you've asked for, decide to share with those who need it. I encourage you to do your research in finding your own truth, then doing something about it that will be beneficial to the next generation to come. Without education for all, half of us will be will held back. That half will be trapped in their own minds and souls. Being trapped makes us stagnant. Being stagnant means we won't evolve. When we don't evolve, nothing is this world will ever change. We need the world to change for the better and the only way this can be done is by "you" doing your part. There are quite a few non profits that effectively fight to make this world a better place. Find the one you love and start working with them. Also, if you've yet to become a GL️BAL CITIZEN, please sign up through @glblctzn Together we can #endglobalpovertyby2030 If you would like to go further, please consider donating your pennies to me. I use pennies to educate girls in developing countries. Why pennies People are skeptical about donating, which is understandable. In addition, pennies aren't considered to have much value, if any at all. It is sad to say but this is how girls are viewed worldwide. I have commit my life in changing the world for the better. I will through example that we are change and that pennies are valuable and so are the #62milliongirls worldwide that are not in schools. I send girls to school through @girlrisingofficial For more information, please email me at tiney_one_gal@yahoo.com #LETGIRLSLEARN #LIKEAGIRL #girlscan #girlrising #girlpower #activist #globalcitizen #girlrisingembadsador #pennies4girls #Nepal #SierreLeone #Ethiopia #Egypt #Afghanistan #Cambodia #India #Haiti #Jamaica #Peru #jamaican #withstronggirls #CHIMEFORGLOBALGIRLS #TEDtalk2016 #empowering #enlightening #inspiring #encouraging #BlackGirlMagic 3d

tiney1woman This is your story!!! Don't be afraid to tell it even if it makes others uncomfortable and some find it annoying. That's their issue not yours!!! Education changed my life! My mom's death was my rebirth! I got the courage to walk away from a relationship that I out grew because I followed my mom's advice to listen to my intuition, trust my myself in making my decision and never look back. I decided at age 25 to trust God's plan entirely (no matter the trials/tribulations) while deciding to become my greatest self, regardless how many people I would lose along the way. #62milliongirls #LETGIRLSLEARN #LIKEAGIRL #girlscan #girlrising #girlpower #activist #globalcitizen #girlrisingembadsador #pennies4girls #Nepal #SierreLeone #Ethiopia #Egypt #Afghanistan #Cambodia #India #Haiti #Jamaica #Peru #jamaican #withstronggirls #CHIMEFORGLOBALGIRLS #TEDtalk2016 #empowering #enlightening #inspiring #encouraging #endglobalpovertyby2030 #BlackGirlMagic 5d

tiney1woman I knew my idea was crazy but the support from others made me realize it was valid. This bucket of pennies was from one of my pass student. He had convinced his mom to bring in all pennies, other coins and $1 currency that was present in his household. I'll forever remember his proud face knowing that he would be changing girls lives forever, granting them the opportunity to go to school. My dream is not only using pennies to educate girls in developing countries but also challenging people of the world in taking the initiative to create change them self. Change begins with us and the only time anything is going to change is when we really start caring. I don't care if it's only 1 penny. Rather than walking over it or letting it sit in a jar or drawer, please consider donating. The world will thank you for it🏾🏾🏾 When we educate a girl, EVERYTHING CHANGES. The world evolves and with education it's one way we will end global poverty. #62milliongirls #LETGIRLSLEARN #LIKEAGIRL #girlscan #girlrising #girlpower #activist #globalcitizen #girlrisingembadsador #pennies4girls #Nepal #SierreLeone #Ethiopia #Egypt #Afghanistan #Cambodia #India #Haiti #Jamaica #Peru #jamaican #withstronggirls #CHIMEFORGLOBALGIRLS #TEDtalk2016 #empowering #enlightening #inspiring #encouraging #endglobalpovertyby2030 #BlackGirlMagic 7d
