Abigail was on the streets. She was exploited. Abused as a vulnerable 10-year-old girl. And now?She is now 13 and in the 7th grade. She's a top student. She knows how to bake, a skill that she can use to earn an income. She dreams of being a leading voice for millions of girls just like her - and we expect her to do it!We are only able to open her life up because of you. It's that simple. It's not complex. She is off the streets and on a path of impact because of... you.We have a couple incredible opportunities in front of us - and we need you:1) Nike (yes, Nike!) nominated us to join the organizations they partner with to help girls around the world. All we need to be ELECTED is a whole bunch of you to vote (by donating as little as $10) and it'll be official. Nike wants to see that we have grassroots support - let's show them and change some lives right here. Go now to the voting/donation site at http://www.globalgiving.org/projects/educating-to-end-child-prostitution/2) The biggest opportunity we've had is also looking right at us. It's a chance to end the atrocities that Abigail and all the girls in her situation stare down everyday. We can't give you the details yet... but we can say we don't need $ from you for this. We need people with large and small online audiences to galvanize their friends and family to help -- it won't take much but it will mean everything to Abigail and girls just like her. Stay tuned, and we'll let you know on November 14th when we're allowed to talk about what's going on. Email us: firstname.lastname@example.org if you'd like to be more involved!Together we can do this for Abigail!
