I've always wanted to save the world, with American Woman for International Understanding I get to do it.
My friends and I raise money and distribute it to women and organizations worldwide, who are working to make the lives of women, girls, and families better, safer, and healthier. It makes me feel happy to know I am helping to make the world a better place.
I have been volunteering as a director, donating dollars and time since 2013.
Women and girls in the United States can drive, go to school, choose who they marry, inherit, and own property. I want every girl and woman to have the same choices, and that is why I support AWIU. I can't change the world, but, I can help women who are. You can find out more about AWIU at www.awiu.org.
