SPECIAL THANKS TO OUR SPONSORS

Kathryn Semogas, Change.org


This is Kathryn from Change.org.I love seeing people use Change.org to fight for issues like women’s rights and education.

One of my favorite petitions was started by Malala Yousafzai, which set out to help 62 million girls around the world get the education they deserve.

Through supporters like you, Malala’s petition received over one million signatures and achieved victory when the Global Partnership for Education said they would fund 12 years of education for girls globally.

But without supporters like you, Malala’s petition would not have won.

So I just wanted to check back in and ask if you still want to hear from us about campaigns like hers and others – if you do, please click here.

If you don’t, you can unsubscribe here.

Thank you for being part of Change.org!
