When I received this third and final video blog from ONE member Katie Meyler, I immediately hit play to watch Katie tell Abigail’s story. Katie tells it best, but it struck me how Abigail’s story is really about how poverty robs a girl of more than an education -– it robs her of her childhood. Abigail is now in school and at the top of her class because of More Than Me.
Check out the amazing video by the What Took You So Long foundation:
Moved by Abigail’s story? Vote for More Than Me in the Chase Community Giving contest –- voting ends tomorrow and Katie really needs our support to put 100 more girls like Abigail in school for seven years. For these girls, an education is the key to a real childhood and a better life.
Katie has been busy this weekend –- organizing a flash mob and riding the NYC subway in her school uniform, handing out voting cards drumming up support for More Than Me. She’s was featured in the Huffington Post, and tonight, if you’re in the NYC area, you can catch her at 7 p.m. on NBC in a live interview with Chuck Scarborough.
