Safecity - crowd sourcing at its best

I am a mentor with the Cherie Blair Foundation. I highly recommend this organization - the mentor/mentoree training is terrific and the opportunities to gain & give global perspectives is beyond measure.

One such view came to my inbox this weekend. Violence against women & children should not be tolerated anywhere. All help, good words, actions or ideas are necessary. Mentoring can help. Sharing information can help.

Think about being a mentor with CBF. Or simply support folks like Safecity. No matter how much time or effort you have to give, it will all make a difference.
