Lotus Outreach and the Blossom Bus are in the final hours of the second annual Girl Effect Challenge. Victory in this challenge would mean we could double the number of Blossom Bus girls next year to 300, bringing new hope to 150 girls that have been forced to drop out of school and are at-risk of becoming child brides.The only way we can guarantee victory and continue our invaluable partnership with Girl Effect in 2013 is through your vote.A donation of just $10 to the project = one vote for the Blossom Bus, and there are two simple ways to cast your vote: Donate online at www.blossombus.org-or-Text "GIVE 5307" to 80088 to donate $10*You can track our progress on the Girl Effect Challenge leaderboard here.So far this year, 150 girls have received rides to and from school each day as a result of the tremendous outpouring of love, support and energy we received from you all in the 2011 challenge. 99% of these girls graduated to a higher grade level this spring, with many making history in their village high schools. We know you can help us cross the finish line again and enable these bright young women to continue blazing trails in their communities.If you have already donated toward the challenge this month, thank you!!! Please continue to be a voice for these amazing girls by telling your friends, family and colleagues about this challenge via email, Twitter and Facebook.
