    "Girls Read for Girls" Read-a-Thon

    Fourth graders in Brooklyn heard Malala’s story and wanted to help other girls like her go to school. They hosted a Read-a-Thon called “Girls Read for Girls.” Pledgers backed students and made online donations based on the pages they read. The results? Over three years, they raised more than $15,000 to help girls everywhere get the education they deserve.

  • David

    David's Birthday Marathon

    David believes educating girls is the most effective way to ensure healthier people and more developed economies. He is inspired by Malala, who survived an attack by the Taliban when she was only slightly older than his own daughter. David chose to donate his 51st birthday to the cause by running his first marathon in support of Malala Fund.
