Walk In Her Shoes

Support Me

Dear Friends:

I am joining CARE’s Walk In Her Shoes fundraising campaign and taking 10,000 steps each day for one week – from March 8 to 14, 2017 – in solidarity with the journey taken each day by women and girls around the world. A big focus of my volunteering for Room to Read these past 6 years has been on ensuring girls receive education and tools to navigate their key life decisions and now I add CARE to my commitment.

In the world’s poorest communities, women and girls bear the brunt of poverty.  Often, they must walk up to four miles (10,000 steps) for basic needs like food, firewood, and clean water for their families.  This daily trek can prevent girls from attending school, developing a career, and acquiring financial independence -- watch 30 second video at the bottom of this page.
Through Walk In Her Shoes, I am raising money to support CARE’s community-based efforts to improve education, health and economic opportunity for girls and women, which in turn helps their entire families emerge from poverty. 
Please join me in supporting CARE’s work around the globe to save lives, defeat poverty and achieve social justice.
I have pledged to raise at least $500, but I would love to raise much more.  All donations are tax-deductible for U.S.-based donors.  And more than 90% of expenses support poverty-fighting projects around the world.  Please contribute whatever you can and share this page with others so they too can have an opportunity to make a difference.
Volunteering and providing financial support to worthy organizations is a big part of how I worship and live my personal values. Thanks for your consideration in supporting my efforts!  xo and love, Carolyn
