I have been so inspired by Tara Sophia Mohr’s Girl Effect Blogging Campaign. And I’m so excited to see how my fellow bloggers are sharing their passion for this amazing organization. Today is the day! Join me in raising money for The Girl Effect. Starting today, I’ll be donating $5.00 for each of the first hundred covers submitted that features a strong, hear-me-roar girl character. Read below to learn more.
Reading Is a Right.
Everyone, including girls, should have the right to go to school and learn to read.
Reading Is Power.
The written word, whether it’s in books, magazines, online or in a personal journal, reveals the world. To a child, these words can introduce and inspire new ideas that reverberate for decades to come.
The Girl Effect is based on a powerful truth: when we invest in a young girl’s education in the developing world, she grows up to a woman who can support herself and pull her entire family out of poverty. Research now shows that investing in a girl’s education is the most effective solution for fighting poverty globally.
From October 4th to January 4th, I’ll be donating $5.00 for each of the first hundred covers submitted that features a strong, hear-me-roar girl character. I’m committed to donating $500, but I want your help. Here’s what to do:
♥ Get inspired! Check out GirlEffect.org to learn more about how urgently our help is needed.
♥ Choose your subject. Will you reimagine Katniss Everdeen in The Hunger Games or Jo March in Little Women? What about Miss Eloise or Karana in Island of the Blue Dolphins? Let’s celebrate girls who ask questions, make their own rules, and find a new way to navigate through old waters. Show me who you admire.
♥ Work your magic. Let your art tell a story—a story we must keep telling.
♥ Send your cover to firstname.lastname@example.org
♥ I’ll donate $500 to The Girl Effect, directing the money to buy books for schools that support the education for girls. Would you like to match my donations? $.50, $1.00, $5.00 a cover or more? Send me a message! Let’s see how much we can raise.
If you’ve been wanting to submit to Uncovered Cover Art, now is the time. If you know someone who should submit, share this message.
Every submission will be featured on the site. Let’s make a difference together.
