Thank-You from More Than Me

Thanks to the efforts of every single person combined, More Than Me won the NBC Giving Awards on Friday night and won the grand prize of a million dollars which is going to helping more than a thousand young girls in Liberia get off of the streets, out of the slums and into schools where they will have the tools to make their dreams come true.

Dare to DREAM

To all of you who read my More Than Me posts, who voted and who shared them, for everyone who invested their energy into helping us win. Thank you. We all came together, thousands and thousands of us came together and really made it about more than any of us and that will go a long long way.

And the winner is… More Than Me! (photo c/o Frederick M. Brown, Getty Images All Rights Reserved)

Isn’t it amazing how much we can achieve when we all come together?

Now what else can we achieve? What else is possible?

Sending an abundance of love and light out to you all.

Calling ALL Bloggers!!

Greetings awesome bloggers!

voteabigail.org

It’s not very often that we have the opportunity to come together for a cause that’s bigger than us, bigger than blogging and can have a seriously positive domino effect in the lives of others.

I am fortunate enough to be working with More Than Me, an education and girls’ empowerment non-profit is gaining notoriety through its guerilla-style marketing, inspiring hundreds of people to write “I am Abigail” on their foreheads and posting the photos on Facebook.

This really begs the question, “Who the heck is Abigail?”

Abigail was an orphan in West Point, Liberia. You may have read her letter in a previous article in the Huffington Post. At six, she was left with prostitutes. She learned to work the streets in order to get access to drinking water and food. Education was not an option.

Then Abigail met Katie Meyler, the founder of More Than Me, an organization dedicated to getting girls off the streets and into schools. Katie and Abigail became fast friends, and More Than Me has raised the money to put Abigail through school. She is learning to bake, and aspires to one day be a Senator, so she can, in turn, help other girls like her.

So, why are all these people also “Abigail”?

Abigail could be you. Abigail could be your sister, your niece, your student, or your neighbor. Remember, we live in a global community; there is no “me” without “we”, Abigail is because you are, and you are because Abigail is.

I’m asking, no pleading, no telling you to join the community! When you’ve done that, help the community grow by spreading our story. And most of all, get inspired!

Take 15 seconds (yes, just 15 seconds) to make the lives of these girls a bit better by doing two very simple and extremely meaningful things: VOTE NOW through Dec. 4 for Abigail and girls like her at voteabigail.org and… then share it with others. (Maybe even by making your OWN “I am Abigail” picture!)

Thanks please let me know if you’re interested or have questions!
Pass it on! We need YOU fellow bloggers and all of your friends! Let’s make this happen and change the world a little!

I look forward to hearing from you and seeing what kind of a domino effect we can create!

Sending you all oodles of love and light!
