Fabulous Finds Friday...a Feel Good Friday Kinda Find!

7 days, R.E.A.L.L.Y!?! My math is terrible, and I wish it were true with this countdown!

Anyhooo, here we are... Fab Finds Friday. Since we are upon the Holiday of Giving, I thought what better time then to highlight the best kind of giving- the kind where you really make a difference, the kind where your gift is priceless, and will change lives. Who wouldn't want to be a part of that?

I am a girl power type of girl, I am a working mom, I believe in woman's rights, if you are a women who doesn't vote- that really gets me going, and I feel strongly about choice. Very strongly!

Well... thanks to the big "O", I have recently become aware of an amazing organization. The Girl Effect. The thought behind this organization gives me goosebumps and inspires me.

"There are 600 million adolescent girls living in poverty in the developing world. By giving one of these girls a chance, you start the girl effect. When girls have safe places to meet, education, legal protection, health care, and access to training and job skills, they can thrive. And if they thrive, everyone around them thrives, too."

This year, I will be giving the gift of giving. For every member of my family, I plan to donate on their behalf. I believe in the bigger picture, I believe in women, I believe in change, and I believe every little bit helps.

I hope you find inspiration in an organization this Holiday Season and help those who really need it.
