The humanitarian organization CARE and General Mills have created Join My Village, a web initiative that makes it easy for everyone to be a philanthropist.
Visitors to www.joinmyvillage.com can take simple online actions (watch videos, read blog posts, and more) and in less than 60 seconds release dollars from General Mills that go toward CARE's work in Malawi.
CARE is a leading humanitarian organization fighting poverty in 70 countries around the world, including Malawi, one of the poorest countries in Africa. Funds raised from Join My Village will provide girls with scholarships for secondary school, bring female teachers to the villages as role models for girls, and help women in poverty to learn how to start their own businesses.
Join My Village is one of the fastest, easiest ways to make a difference by empowering people with the tools they need to build a better life – you don't even have to spend your own money to be charitable this holiday season.
Better yet, if you visit Join My village by January 15, 2011, you can double the dollars General Mills will release to girls and women in Malawi. Just click here and use promotion code JMV4CN when you join to double your impact.
