I love receiving information about causes such as Join My Village. My blog is read by tens of thousands each month and if even 1 of you joins my village and supports this great cause then I will have done my job.
What is Join My Village? Join My Village is a joint effort between General Mills and CARE. It's an online community that is charged with fighting poverty in Malawi through the empowerment of womena and girls.
Why Malawi? Malawi, an African country, is one of the poorest and densely-populated countries. With an extremely low life expectancy (just 44 years old!) and high infant mortality (89 deaths per 1,000 births), the people of Malawi are in dire need of assistance.How can I help? Visit Join My Village and join 1 of the 10 teams to benefit 75 different villages in Malawi. You'll get to know the Malawi women of your village through photographs and stories. Through simple online activities such as answering a quiz question or telling a friend about Join My Village, $1 will be unlocked by General Mills and will go to CARE's poverty fighting programs in the Malawi villages (limit of 3 activities per person per day, and $15,000 per online village team - or $150,000 in total). General Mills will also match personal contributions made will go to CARE's poverty fighting programs in the Malawi villages (limit of 3 activities per person per day, and $15,000 per online village team - or $150,000 in total)
How do I join? You can either join on your own or email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) requesting an invite to be a part of Kaisi, the village I am a part of.
