Help Raise Up To $10,000 For Girls For A Change (Make Yahoo! Your Homepage With One Easy Click by July 1st)

The following is a post sponsored by Yahoo! Every time someone clicks here to make Yahoo! their homepage, they're showing their support for Girls For A Change.

I was selected for this opportunity by Clever Girls Collective, which endorses Blog With Integrity, as I do.

I have joined countless other people in changing my homepage to Yahoo! AND I'm supporting Girls For A Change at the same time.  You and I can help to raise up to $10,000 for Girls For A Change by simply making Yahoo! our browser's homepage by July 1st!  Please use the above link so that your switch is counted. 

I hope you'll join me!  It took me only moments to switch over to the Yahoo! homepage and I have already started customized it!  I LOVE IT!  Not only does it show me my local weather and the news, but it also gives me the ability to see other areas, entertainment... you name it!

I can think of so many women who have been a positive role model in my life: my Mom, my grandmothers and even some of my teachers, just to name a few.  I lived in an area that had a wonderful Girl Scouts program, as well as MANY other wonderful programs for girls.  At the time, I didn't realize that all girls didn't have the same opportunities, but knowing that now makes it so much easier for me to jump on this campaign and help spread the word that it only takes one simple click to start helping to empower girls both nationally and internationally through supporting the Yahoo! campaign with Clever Girls Collective. 

As an added bonus - anyone who joins me and clicks here to make Yahoo! their homepage and leaves a comment here with a link to their blog, I'll post a huge Thank You below with a link to your blog/site etc!!!

What are you waiting for?  Join me now and be part of a wonderful campaign to support Girls For A Change. 

About This Campaign
Yahoo! will donate $10 to Girls For A Change (GFC) for each person who clicks here to make Yahoo! her homepage by July 1...up to an amazing $10,000! We're counting on you to help us find 1,000 people willing to make a change worth $10,000 to this fantastic cause.

About Girls For A Change
Clever Girls Collective selected GFC as the non-profit for this generous Yahoo! campaign because it matches our mission of empowering women to help each other. Clever Founder Sheila Bernus Dowd was a GFC volunteer and member of the advisory board, so we have first-hand experience with their commitment to helping girls become community leaders. Here's how they describe themselves:

“Girls For A Change (GFC) is a national organization that empowers girls to create social change. We invite young women to design, lead, fund and implement social change projects that tackle issues girls face in their own neighborhoods. GFC empowers girls for personal and social transformation. The program inspires girls to have the voice, ability and problem solving capacity to speak up, be decision makers, create visionary change and realize their full potential."

Why Should You Make Yahoo! Your Homepage? It offers...
1. Personalized content: The Yahoo! homepage delivers you the most relevant content based on your interests, time of day, and what’s most popular with other users like you.

2. Your World and The World: The Yahoo! homepage uniquely brings together your world (your email, local news) with the world around you (current events, entertainment news, financial updates and more)

3. Human Interest: Articles on the homepage have a human approach – more than just news, it delivers human interest stories that you just have to click on.

*Disclosure: As a blogger, I was chosen to take part in this campaign and was provided an incentive to participate.  I feel this is a great cause to support and have provided my own opinions.
