Yahoo & Girls For A Change!!

The following is a post sponsored by Yahoo! Every time someone clicks here to make Yahoo! their homepage, they're showing their support for Girls For A Change.

I was selected for this opportunity by Clever Girls Collective, which endorses Blog With Integrity, as I do.

Girls For A Change (GFC) is a national organization that empowers girls to create social change. We invite young women to design, lead, fund and implement social change projects that tackle issues girls face in their own neighborhoods. GFC empowers girls for personal and social transformation. The program inspires girls to have the voice, ability and problem solving capacity to speak up, be decision makers, create visionary change and realize their full potential."

Can you say amazing program??  As a woman and the mother of a little girl I can't stress how important I think it is to enpower our girls.  Our society has come a long way in giving girls more of a voice but there is always room for growth and change.  Girls For A Change (GFC) give girls a chance to make a significant impact in their communities and helps to pave the way for a life of confidence and social awareness.  I think this program is simply amazing.  Some of the "team projects" (this is where 5-10 girls are paired with 2 coaches) that are happening right now are Immigration Education in San Jose and Cease the Violence Against Women in Richmond.

There is something super easy we can all do now to help keep this amazing program going. Yahoo! will donate $10 to Girls For A Change (GFC) for each person who clicks here to make Yahoo! her homepage by July 1...up to an amazing $10,000!  How great is this and how easy!  Besides helping a great cause such as Girls For A Change making Yahoo your homepage gives you these added benefits...
  1. Personalized content: The Yahoo! homepage delivers you the most relevant content based on your interests, time of day, and what’s most popular with other users like you.
  2. Your World and The World: The Yahoo! homepage uniquely brings together your world (your email, local news) with the world around you (current events, entertainment news, financial updates and more)
  3. Human Interest: Articles on the homepage have a human approach – more than just news, it delivers human interest stories that you just have to click on.
I would say this is a no brainer, wouldn't you??  So, what are you waiting for?  Head on over and help make a difference (and get a great new homepage!).

Removing these (and the inner membrane) will greatly reduce the heat of a chili. In addition, Pork and sausage are really popular in Poland; and people generally think that it is healthy, even necessary, to eat pork and sausage. Meeting the challenge, in 1803, was the British chemist John Dalton with his new atomic theory of matter.
