15-year-old Malala Yousufzai has received worldwide attention for her efforts to promote the education of girls in Pakistan. On October 9th, she was targeted by the Taliban while on her way home from school and shot in the head. It’s been reported that she recently emerged from a coma in London where she is being treated for her grave wounds. A team with both personal and public ties to Malala and her family have started a campaign to help fund Malala’s future educational and medical costs. Your support for Malala is also support for all the girls for whom she fights.
This story broke my heart. I intend to donate to this brave young woman's cause.
