10X10 is a global campaign to educate and empower girls. At the center of the campaign is a feature film, Girl Rising. I am bringing this incredible film to the Aperture Theater in Downtown Winston Salem. It’s by an Academy Award nominated director (Richard Robbins) and features performances from Meryl Streep, Anne Hathaway, Selena Gomez, Salma Hayek, Alicia Keys, Kerry Washington and others.
This is a beautiful and important film, Girl Rising, tells the stories of 9 remarkable girls from around the world, who are striving beyond circumstance, pushing past limits and demonstrating the extraordinary strength of the human spirit to overcome the odds. Yet it also carries a powerful message: if we educate girls, we can change the future of some 66 million girls around the world who today only dream of going to school.

Girl Rising will be released on the eve of International Women’s Day, March 7, 2013 at 8:00pm. Our film will be hosted at the Aperture Theater in Downtown Winston Salem. Everyone can and should see this stunning film.

To help me in this endeavor I will need for you to do ONE of TWO things:
