Throughout the month of September, Cody Deaner and Giv'er for Charity are partnering up to raise money to send girls in rural India to school.
Cody had the following to say about the partnership on his Facebook page:
"My journey in both professional wrestling & professional speaking has led me to meet some pretty amazing people... This year my journey led me to St. Joseph’s school in Acton, Ontario. After my presentation a young girl named Emmy (in the pic with the overalls with her two younger sisters Lizzie and Frannie) approached me and told me how inspired she was by my message to “dream BIG.” She then told me I should talk to her mom Gita.
Emmy and her sister Lizzie went home and told their mom about me and Gita and I got in touch. She told me about her not-for-profit organization that encourages young girls to DREAM BIG. I knew immediately that I wanted to help.
So I’m excited to announce that throughout the month of September, “Giv’er for Charity” will be partnering with Mariam Society to help send young girls to school so they can #dreamBIG
The Mariam Society believes in the power of education to change a girl’s life. They help girls living in poverty stay in school, perform better, and dream bigger.
The Mariam Society is partnered with the Grameen Foundation & together they provide education bursary and mentorship programs that partner women and men in Canada with girls in rural India, to help them pursue higher education, and imagine a life in which dreams are possible.
It costs $264 Canadian dollars to send one girl to school for one year. Currently, there is a young girl named Nandini (profile below) who has a dream to be a teacher and help other needy children achieve their dreams.
I’m hoping, with your help, we can raise that $264 for Nandini. Throughout September, at all of my speaking and wrestling events I’ll be collecting all money from my “Giv’er for Charity” t-shirts and pictures and donating it to this cause. If you’d like to donate personally to this cause and aren’t able to attend an event, you can contact me personally via email or visit www.mariamsociety.org to donate and/or learn more.
Together, I believe we can GIV’ER for charity and help Nandini and others like her to DREAM BIG!
