TGIF - Odds and Ends that are in!

I'd like to wrap up the week with a few things that I want to share with you. Nothing heavy, just a couple of ways to solve some of the world's problems, that's all.

It's called The Girl Effect and if you do nothing else today but take 3 minutes to view their video, I think it will be well worth your while.

The other idea whose time has come are the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) as set forth by the United Nations. One of their goals is to end world poverty by the year 2015.

I had the honor of being invited to attend a Press Conference and Luncheon recently for the MDG Awards Ceremony to be held later this fall.

The number three goal of the MDG is Gender Equality (why is this not #1?). For a (fairly) recent report on how this effort is shaping up click here. The notion of Gender Equality as supported by the UN has been around quite a while. Here is a link to one of their early proclamations concerning this topic.

Now that you have been exposed to these thought-provoking tid-bits, get out there and be a part of the solution as set forth by both The Girl Effect and the UN.

Then kick-back, relax, and enjoy more Lifestyle Lifters featuring Evie in tomorrow's post.

Have a great weekend! SDG, JBHIV
