Angela's goal is to raise $20,000 and complete her walk of 20,000 miles in support of women who are enslaved. She's partnered with Her Future Coalition, a non-profit that supports high-risk girls and women around the world by providing them with education, shelter, and entrepreneurship opportunities. Their goal is to break the cycle of poverty and exploitation of women, including trafficking and gender violence.
I believe that's a cause we can all get behind!
In my mind, I'll be walking with Angela as well as the millions of women who cannot walk freely themselves. I've watched Angela's videos, and it's heartbreaking what girls as young as 12 years old are subjected to. I have a 12-year-old daughter myself, and I cannot imagine this for anyone's daughter. I hug her every day, hoping that one day every girl can feel as safe and independent and loved.
Angela and Her Future Coalition are actively working to help give girls and women opportunities they might not have otherwise. They are empowering women -- and I mean that in every sense of the word. Thanks to their efforts, thousands of women have broken free of the poverty and exploitation cycle.
