I was selected for this opportunity by Clever Girls Collective, which endorses Blog With Integrity, as I do.
Ok, so there’s this project that I’d like to tell you guys about. Yahoo has pledged to donate up to $10,000 total for Girls For a Change for everyone who makes Yahoo their homepage. Girls for a Change is a national organization that empowers girls/women to create change. The program inspires girls “to have the voice, ability and problem solving capacity to speak up, be decision makers, create visionary change and realize their full potential” and be leaders. Since most of my readers are girls, I thought it would be important enough to take a second from our day to support such a cause. As mothers, or future mothers, we want our girls to have better opportunities, to be able to make a difference and most importantly to know that they can lead.
So all you have to do is go to this link and set Yahoo as your homepage. And Yahoo will donate money per each newly set homepage up to $10,000.
It so happens that Yahoo is and has been my home page for many years. So it would be a worthwhile change, I can tell you. First of all, I prefer Yahoo search to google. I feel it comes up with more relevant results. Secondly, all the information is at your fingertips. Yahoo is the first place I get world news from, read fun articles, interesting news stories, popular videos and local news.
So again, all you have to do is click on this link and make Yahoo your homepage ( it won’t do it automatically, don’t worry), and you’ll be benefiting thousands of girls worldwide. The link is the only way Yahoo can track the number of people who make Yahoo their homepage and donate the correct amount of money to Girls for a Change.

And far as my news go, well I’ve been feeling better one day, worse another day, so I’m still not out of the woods just yet. Tomorrow is my 10th week post and I hope I will be feeling well enough to make it happen.
I didn’t forget about all the other posts I promised you I’d write (nutrition, pregnancy expectations and reality and more), I am working on them slowly, and hope to get them done sometime in the future.
