SMW support GirlsFund – Donate to help end extreme poverty

Social Media Women are proud to support Plan’s GirlsFund. The GirlsFund projects fight gender inequality, to champion girl’s rights, amongst other things. Girls are key to ending the cycle of extreme poverty. With your support we can help girls overcome the obstacles preventing them from reaching their full potential. Our very own co-founder Catriona Pollard, and member Rebecca Varidel are featured in a television commercial for GirlsFund starting this Sunday night. Please consider donating to GirlsFund.
