Malala Yousafzai is a young Pakistani girl who decided at an early age to be an activist for change in her country. As a blogger for BBC Urdu she wrote about her life and the unfair and often inhumane treatment by the Taliban that occupied her country. The one thing that Malala stood for was education and the need for all, especially young women, to be able to receive an education. Malala was shot for her advocacy efforts and fortunately for the world recovered and has become an amazing voice in our world today. She is the youngest person to ever receive the Nobel Prize.
When I look at the impact that this young woman has made in her short life I am astonished. She is only just beginning her human rights advocacy and has made such a difference already in her 19 years of life. I can only imagine what the rest of her life will bring.
Malala has teamed up with Schoola and clothing donation bags are now available for free for individuals to fill with quality well cared for clothing for toddlers, children and women. The bag comes in a nice little envelope ready to be filled and mailed back at no cost to Schoola where it is then resold through their website to others who are looking for used clothing at a bargain price. 40% of the proceeds (less the cost of inbound shipping) will go directly to Malala Fund to support girls’ education projects in the most vulnerable communities around the world. To me it is a win win situation.
- Order envelope by going to this site and filling out the information required
- When the envelope arrives simply stuff it full of clean toddler, children and women’s clothing in good condition
- Seal bag and mail using the pre-paid mailing label attached to the bag
- Smile knowing you have helped provide education for some young women who have been denied that right.
I am doing my part. How about you? It is so easy to make a small difference and requesting a clothing bag here is the first step.
