I have many causes that are close to my heart and this is one of them. The Girl Rising campaign was created to spread awareness about the global movement for girls’ education. Many people have never heard of this before, but we want to change that. We are planning on bringing the screening of Girl Rising to Austin but we need YOUR help! In order for the screening to come to Austin, at least 100 people need to reserve their tickets by February 28th. The screening is scheduled to occur Monday, March 11that 7:30pm at Arbor 8 @ Great Hills. The film is intended to spread awareness and a portion of ticket sales will help fund girls’ programs. You can help make an impact by getting involved and spreading the word!
