Plan International’s Because I’m a Girl initiative is a social movement that works towards unleashing the power of girls and women from around the world. While girls are often the poorest of the poor, it has been proven that investing in girls is the key to eliminating poverty.
October 11th has been declared by the United Nations as the International Day of the Girl Child! This day will create a foundation to advocate and recognize girls’ rights globally.
Premium, organic skin care line, GRATiAE, is partnering with Because I’m a Girl to help raise funds for this worthy cause. On October 11th, $5 from every in-store and online sale will be donated the Because I’m a Girl. GRATiAE is also accepting online donations here.
