I was recently interviewed to be featured as a spokesperson for the inaugural “My Empowoment” campaign by the wonderful women of Social Esquire. My friend Jamila asked me to do an interview and I was very flattered that she wanted me involved. I think it’s a great cause and I applaud these women for taking the initiative to create this campaign!
EmpoWOMENt: (verb; \im-pau-wimin-ent): to promote and embrace ones own self-actualization by using positive thinking to make change, through growth that is self-initiated, and never ending.
My Empowoment is an ongoing initiative to raise the awareness of issues facing women globally, and to financially contribute to non-profit orgnizations that benefit woment in need worldwide. This initiative is driven by the passion and desire of Social Esquire. Our goal is to make a direct positive impact on the female population, who suffer at the hands of injustice.
If you are interested in being a part of the Empowoment movement, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Take charge, Take action!
Here’s the “interview” I did on Empowoment:
**Note – I am so much better at being the interviewer as opposed to the interviewee! lol
They also have a tweet-a thon- happening March 8, 2011! It’s a great cause…check it out!
“One Life, One Love, A Powerful You!” On March 8, 2011, Social Esquire will host a tweet-a-thon from 8:00 AM to 8:00 PM, to celebrate women’s “EmpoWOMENt.” We will also be honoring the 100th anniversary of International Women’s Day, by raising awareness about issues effecting women globally. International Women’s Day, celebrates the economic, political, and social achievements of women worldwide. EmpoWOMENt is an international grassroots initiative that encourages women to promote and embrace ones own self-actualization by using positive thinking to make change, through growth that is self-initiated, and never ending.
Our goal is to donate a $1 to a local and international charity, for every tweet that includes #empowoment. The local charity will be Honey Shine Mentoring Program (a program of Alonzo Mourning Charities, www.honeyshine.org), and the international organization will be the Global Fund for Women (www.globalfundforwomen.org). Each organization supports women and girls, who are experiencing challenges and difficulties, at different points in their life.
This will allow people worldwide to demonstrate their commitment to the betterment of women and girls, while also raising awareness.
