This Thursdays' Best Internet Finds posts comes courtesy of my lovely Mother and her knowledge of all things Frederick County, Maryland.
Two girls I went to high school with are doing amazing, world-changing things. Which is exciting because a vast majority of the news out of my hometown is about pregnancy, or jail time. So, bonus points for the news not being those things right off the bat.
As much as my mother would like to have you believe otherwise, cell phones are officially and completely the future. Especially in developing countries, access to cell phones can literally open the world to women. There are downfalls but the world is not going to step backward any time soon, so we might as well do everything we can to help these women step forward.
Also, bitches love cell phone covers.
Enter Kidogo Kidogo. Created by two girls I went to high school with (who have names, you know) Kim and Kristen Waeber.
Here's the deal. You buy one of these hella cute cellphone covers.
FLAMINGOS! They're perfect and pink!
And then you get a friend to buy one too. Might I recommend the trees?
And with those simple purchases ($30 is what I spend on Starbucks in two weeks) a woman in Tanzania receives a cellphone, a sim card, and phone credits to help her start new connected life.
The stories on their site are so simple and amazing. The thing you use to play candy crush is changing lives.
Guys, this is as easy as getting pregnant, but way, way better.
