Unitus started a brilliant campaign Monday to raise money for its microfinance program helping impoverished and mostly female entrepreneurs in developing countries.
Just in time for Mother’s Day, the Redmond non-profit created a special Web site where you can make a $5 donation that will “empower one woman by connecting her to a life-altering microfinance loan.”
Donors can also write a tribute to an empowering woman in their life.
The site already has a collection of poignant essays, like the one from Glenda of Nottingham, England, who donated enough to support 20 women:
“Mummy — you touched & empowered so many people. I miss you more every day but I know your energy is around out there somewhere, empowering us all still.”
