You're Invited! Because I am a Girl- GatHERing  #GatherForGirls



It is with overwhelming excitement that I am sharing my participation in an exclusive and exciting new opportunity. Planning and event hosting details are in preparation for a fun and informative Gathering.

Here are the details for the Gathering that I will be hosting on March 8th, which is also International Women's Day. As a part of Plan International USA's Because I am a Girl campaign, Gathering is a personalized social event that puts the power of storytelling, interactive games and multimedia in your hands to share information with family and friends the challenges that so many young girls face in other countries within the developing world.




My responsibility as a Gathering host is to get active and get involved by sharing information about girls’ rights to everyone and anyone- before, during and after hosting my Gathering. Because I am a Girl has created an incredible party pack for each host to distribute to their guests that include very relevant and "powerful videos, first-person stories, and interactive games to illustrate the obstacles girls from the developing world face every day." The Because I am a Girl Gathering party pack includes:

* Because I am a Girl Gift Bags
* Because I am a Girl Stickers
* Because I am a Girl Bracelet
* Because I am a Girl Lanyard
* Because I am a Girl Pmphlet
* Because I am a Girl

In addition to engaging family and friends to become informed as to the countless girls living in poverty internationally, awareness will be shared about ways that we can empower girls. Plan International and Because I am a Girl have given us the tools that we need to make a difference. Now it's up to you. How can you make a difference? Promise. Educate. Protect. Walk.


Gatherings will take place anytime between International Women’s Day on March 8th and World Water Day on March 22nd. Like Because I'm a Girl on Facebook. Follow @bcimagirl and #GatherForGirls on Twitter for more information and updates. You know how.
