We have an exciting update to share with you about the CHIME FOR CHANGE campaign:
Yesterday, Salma Hayek Pinault, co-founder of the campaign and longtime Pro Mujer supporter, announced a major addition to the initiative – THE SOUND OF CHANGE LIVE, a concert to be headlined by Beyoncé on June 1st at Twickenham Stadium in London and televised worldwide.
The great news is that proceeds from the concert will go to Pro Mujer and other organizations advancing women’s empowerment. The concert will be produced by the forces behind Live Earth and Live Aid and broadcast to more than 1 billion people!
Salma is helping us raise $25,000 to provide 200 of our entrepreneurial client leaders in Mexico with advanced business, health and empowerment training. These women will return to their communal bank groups and share their knowledge with other Pro Mujer clients, so your investment in these 200 will actually be paid forward to help another 6,000 microentrepreneurs break the cycle of poverty.
Through Catapult, CHIME FOR CHANGE’S crowd-funding website partner, you have helped us raise more than $5,500 so far.
