As a member of Mom Bloggers for Social good and the Global Team of 200, I had the opportunity to review an advanced copy of 100 Under $100. Betsy Teutsch compiles a wonderful guide to one hundred tools for empowering global women.
I absolutely loved reading about the cutting edge solutions happening around the world that contribute to alleviating poverty from maternal health to finance to global health. Within each tool she includes ways to deepen our education and ways we can contribute to the work of the organizations that bring these tools to life. I loved seeing them in action through the photographs as well.
After reading the guide, I felt great hope. People all around the globe are combining talent with compassion to make the world a better place.
That is hope. That is proximity.
I made a twitter list with all the organizations featured in the book.
I can’t wait to continue sharing the work of these organizations and how we can help.
I mean keyhole gardens, kangaroo care, solar ear, eco-briquettes, bottle bricks, microloans, infant warmers, and school lunch. There is so much to be excited about.
Betsy dedicates the book to all who engage in Tikkun Olam- Repairing the World.
That is all of you!
Thank you for your compassion and willingness to place yourself in proximity to need.
