Join My Village & Pay It Forward



Did you know Malawi is among the world's least developed and most densely-populated countries? Because of the extreme poverty in the region, Malawi has a low life expectancy (44 years of age) and high infant mortality (89 deaths per 1,000 births, the 14th highest in the world).

To help this cause
President Clinton introduced a unique commitment between General Mills and CARE called Join My Village, an innovative online community that is fighting poverty in Malawi through the empowerment of women and girls.

How You Can Help (It is FREE):

Visit Join My Village and join one of ten village teams to benefit approximately 75 villages in Malawi

As a village team member, you will get to know the women and families in Malawi through frequent updates, photos and stories.

You can also track how dollars are creating change and improving lives in Malawi
.

Through simple online activities - answering a quiz question, telling a friend about Join My Village, or joining a village team - $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).

Additionally, General Mills will match personal contributions dollar-for-dollar for up to $50 per donor, $15,000 per village team or $150,000 in total.

CARE will distribute all funds raised directly to Malawi to provide economic opportunities for women and increase access to quality education for girls.


I hope you will join me in supporting this great cause, it is FREE to you so you have nothing to loose.
