I'm fundraising for EMpower!

I am taking on the EM GIVES Challenge in an effort to empower 1,000 of the most marginalized young people in Latin America. As COVID-19 continues to overwhelm this region, I am stepping up to support the vulnerable youth that have been particularly affected by the global pandemic. 

Join me as I take on this challenge and help me achieve my fundraising goal by donating to my page! 

About EMpower:

EMpower – The Emerging Markets Foundation is a global philanthropic foundation focused on empowering marginalized young people in emerging market countries.

They partner with local, community-based organizations in 15 EM countries that enable young people’s successful transition into productive, healthy adulthood, developing the next generation of leaders.

VIdeo Update for my EM Gives Challenge

Saturday 17th Oct
Hi there EM community,
I'm raising money for EM Gives this year virtually.  I tried to come up with something fun and interactive, so please watch my video, understand what the challenge is, and open your wallet for these worthy charities.  I am going to post weekly videos as I build out my sponsorship book.  I think we can do a good job raising a meaningful amount of money to help solve some of the serious problems that exist in the places we invest.
