Inspired by journalists Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn's book of the same name, the Half the Sky Movement brings together video, websites, games, blogs and other educational tools to not only raise awareness of women's issues, but to also provide concrete steps to fight these problems and empower women.
To support the launch of Half the Sky Movement: The Game, we will be hosting a 24-hour online game-a-thon, from Wednesday, March 6th, 2013 at 12pm ET through Thursday, March 7th, 2013 at 12pm ET.
In the Half the Sky Movement Facebook game, players embark on a global adventure to create opportunities for women and girls. As players complete quests, they will unlock real-world giving opportunities and sponsored donations that mirror actions in the game.
Unlike traditional game-a-thons, we are not asking that you play for 24 hours consecutively, but that you recruit as many friends as possible to play in this 24-hour period. The more people play, the more real impact we can make, and all it takes is a 15-minute session to make a difference.
Join our Thunderclap and tell your friends about the game-a-thon!
