Today's Christian Woman is proud to support One Million Thumbprints through an in-kind partnership. In an effort to help this campaign, we encourage TCW readers to consider this call.
Are you a blogger with a passion for social justice? Do you feel called to be involved in something much larger than yourself but you're not sure where to start? One Million Thumbprints (1MT) is looking for someone exactly like you.
At the beginning of March, 15 women (and 1 man!) of varying ages, stages, and professions from across America are converging at the base of Mt. Kilimanjaro, Tanzania's "mountain of light." They will share in a daunting but exciting five-day journey through four climate zones, more than 38,000 steps, to summit at just over 19,000 feet on March 8, International Women’s Day.
And we need you to help get the word out about both the climb and the campaign. We are looking for 100 bloggers who will post on Tuesday, January 19, to help us announce the climb and vision and mission of 1MT. Will you join us and add your voice to ours?
Why Do We Need You?
1MT is a campaign seeking to catalyze a groundswell of people focused on overcoming the effects of war against women through storytelling, advocacy, and fundraising. The volunteer peacemakers of 1MT envision a world where women are free from the fear of violence, oppression, and poverty caused by war.
And this is where you come in. See that description? Storytelling. Advocacy. Envisioning. You are women who value and honor the power of story, of words. Write about why violence against women is unjust, or write about how your passion for foster care parallels the struggles of thousands of orphans that are being trafficked in these areas. Write about the impact that a global perspective has on temporal concerns. Whatever your angle is, however the Lord moves you, we need your voice.1
