3 Ways To Help Amazing Women Be Even More Amazing

In my opinion, many charities have such questionable treatment of the poor. They get attention using what I and many others refer to as “poverty porn.” By that I mean that they try to shock you with images of starving children as a way to make you take some sort of vague action.

But even though there’s certainly a lot of poverty and poor health conditions in many parts of the world, our limited perspective allows us to totally erase some important facts: One, women are disproportionately affected by poverty; women represent 70% of the world’s poor and earn only 10% of the world’s income, despite the fact that they represent half of the world’s population and produce over half of its food. Two, these statistics don’t stop these women from doing what they can to provide for their families and communities. Three, you–yes, you–can help these women meet their goals.

DoSomething.org‘s latest campaign, 25,000 Women, focuses on providing money for poor women from around the world who are helping out their families and communities through their independent businesses.
