Thanks to those of you that gave a shit and donated to last month’s charity ($278 donated, $50 from High Def, $228 from you guys). This month’s was recommended by two good female friends of mine, and after watching the following CNN report, it made sense to want to help out.
Some cold facts:
- Every 30 minutes, an Afghan woman dies during childbirth
- 87 percent of Afghan women are illiterate
- 30 percent of girls have access to education in Afghanistan
- 1 in every 3 Afghan women experience physical, psychological or sexual violence
- 44 years is the average life expectancy rate for women in Afghanistan
- 70 to 80 percent of women face forced marriages in Afghanistan
The High Definite’s Give A Shit (GAS) Project is a charity effort aiming to collaborate small donations ($.25 to $1.00) from a large group in order to give a collective sum to help a cause. Donate to this month’s cause here. Thanks.
