Hi Maya, I have started a small, new nonprofit venture, or perhaps more precisely, nonprofit adventure in collective grantmaking called 5 for Fairness. It is a Ning site and is the home to a small but growing community dedicated to supporting programs that foster fairness for girls worldwide. It is in its very early days yet, but I wonder if you would take a look as it seems that it might be a natural fit for a program like Girls Write Now. If you have a volunteer supporter who would want to start a Girls Write Now team, we would welcome it. Hope you have a minute to stop by and see what we are up to. Thanks. Anna

Hey there! I wanted to say "welcome" officially, and to say we should get something on the books for next week. I am so excited to work with you in whatever way is best for GWN. Also we are going to feature the video you posted on the main page in the next couple of days, thanks for putting it up. Spend some time on the site and let me know what you think, what you'd like to see, what works. :)

warm best and more soon
