CALLING CITWIT Nation: I just got back from a trip to Ethiopia and decided to share these photos. So for International Women’s Day, CITIUS MAG want to give back to the Girls Gotta Run Foundation.
It’s simple. Shoot us a Venmo (@CITIUSMAG) and we’ll donate what we have at the end of the day (Thursday, March 8) to the foundation.
Here’s how one donation can make a difference to a young woman in Ethiopia:
$10 provides one sport shirt for one girl
$15 provides one pair of shorts or pants
$20 provides transportation for one month for one athlete to and from training and race sites
$25 provides extra food (calorie money) for one athlete for one month
$30 provides one sports uniform for one athlete
$35 provides one sports bra for a girl runner
$50 provides one pair of running shoes
$60 provides an entire month’s food for one athlete for one month
$75 provides one pair of shoes and one sports outfit for one girl
$100 provides one coach’s subsidy for 3 months (for part time work)
$100 provides an athlete the opportunity to travel to domestic competitions
$600 sponsors an athlete for a year
Here’s some photos from my trip to Ethiopia and a glimpse at some of the girls that you’d be helping:
Let’s do some good CITWIT Nation. We donated $100 of our own to start and within the first hour, we were approaching $400. You guys, rock!
