Could you live on $2.50 a day?
Women make up 70% of the world's poor. Every day, they face the challenge of living on less than $2.50. Grameen Foundation works to empower these women to lift themselves out of poverty and improve their own lives.
On March 8th, join "Team Grameen" in celebrating International Women's Day and show your support for women everywhere by taking the Grameen Foundation $2.50 Challenge.
You'll experience the challenge of filling your stomach with just $2.50 for one entire day and in doing so, you'll raise money to support the many millions of poor women who face this struggle every day.
If you hate poverty and are looking for a way to make a meaningful difference, this is your chance. Get your friends and family involved by asking them to donate to your cause. The more people, the better!
A generous donor from Dublin, OH has agreed to match all donations, dollar-for-dollar, up to $15,000. This means a gift of $25 will become $50, a gift of $50 will become $100, and a gift of $100 will become $200!
Just click the green "Become a Fundraiser" button towards the top right, and we'll guide you through the quick and easy process of setting up your own page.
One woman is worth so much more. Take the challenge.
Grameen Foundation's mission is to empower the poorest of the poor -- especially women -- to lift themselves out of poverty and improve their own lives through financial services, life-changing information, and income-generating opportunities. This is only possible with the partnership of "Team Grameen" -- our volunteers, supporters, and donors who share our passion for this work.
