You will not believe the news I have for you! This holiday season, we asked you to help send 1,000 girls to school in Malawi. Thanks to all of your hard work, we have completely exceeded our goal just days before 2010 ends. So far, you have given enough to help give more than 4,000 girls an education!
As the year comes to an end, all of us here at Girl Up have been looking back on the most amazing 2010 moments. We realize that so many of our most incredible memories came from you!
This year, for our 10th birthday party, my twin sister Sydney and I decided to have our first GirlRaiser to support Girl Up. We went on GirlUp.org and started our GirlRaiser team, "Jersey Girls Rock!" We needed our mom and dad to help us get organized, but the rest was pretty easy.
I recently moved to Arlington Heights, Illinois. As the winter season approached, our family was invited to join the neighborhood of 550 houses to decorate a Christmas tree with little white lights and display it in our front lawn. This is a tradition that dates back 40 years in Arlington Heights.

Imagine you are in a class with 40 other children, trying to learn and understand the lesson. Now, imagine you had no pencils or notebooks. Girls in developing countries like Malawi are forced to learn in extreme situations like these every day.
My name is Jenna, and I’m a Girl Up Teen Advisor. I’m writing to wish you all happy holidays and to remind everyone of the importance of giving during this holiday season!
Hey, everybody! I hope you are all doing well and giving lots of High Fives! Right now, I'm excited because I formed an all-girls soccer team that played in a tournament over Thanksgiving weekend. I was one of the 10 girls on the “Girl Up” soccer team; we all wore Girl Up T-shirts.
Wow, what a year it has been for Girl Up! I cannot believe we started this campaign just a few months ago. We all know time flies when you’re having fun!There are so many things we’ve done and achieved this year, but before we start 2011, we want to share some of our favorite moments of 2010!
If you want to help start a revolution to help the world’s girls, look no further than “Girlution” in New Orleans!
In just a few short weeks, Girl Up is well on its way to sending hundreds of girls to school in Malawi, all thanks to you. Since they first asked you to give the gift of an education this holiday season, you have raised enough to send 757 number of girls to school!

As a senior at Ashley Hall, an all-girls school in Charleston, South Carolina, I am required to complete a senior project before graduation. The senior project gives students an opportunity to discover a passion and explore it deeply. I found my passion with Girl Up!
It’s the holiday season, so you’re probably getting all kinds of invites to parties and fun gatherings with friends and family. At Girl Up, we think there’s no better combination than food, fun, people we love and giving back!
You may not have used our events hosting tool yet, so we wanted to give you the run-down on how to host your own party, movie night, bowling tournament (you name it), so you can invite all your friends and give back through Girl Up! I set up my own event — check out how it works!
Girls, I just went to the coolest Conference called TedWomen. There were amazing women attending who cared about all of the same issues you do. US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was there.
Today, we’re giving a huge “High Five” to the U.S. Senate! Last Wednesday, a bill that will protect kids from being married off before they are old enough to know any better passed in the Senate unanimously. This is the first time that the Senate has backed legislation related to this issue.
In countries like the U.S., you have the right to marry who you chose to, but in some developing countries, girls are becoming brides as young as age five!
You and I know that in the U.S., school girls like you grow up to have so many opportunities – think of your moms, aunts, or our government leaders! But girls in other countries like Malawi don’t always have that chance.
