Time to Chime For Change

Chime for Change campaign.

If you haven’t heard by now, Chime for Change is a global campaign to convene, unite and strengthen the voices speaking out for girls and women around the world. The fact that the initiative was set up by Beyonc? and Frida Giannini, the creative director of Gucci, along with Salma Hayek Pinault, is interesting and of course, noble, but what’s really important are the facts and the vital need for change. There was never a time more suitable to chime in and make a difference

Let these stats sink in?

ONE THIRD of the world’s girls are married before the age of 18.

FIFTY PERCENT of all sexual assaults worldwide are against girls 15 or under.

EIGHT HUNDRED women die every day during pregnancy and childbirth.

ONE IN THREE women experience physical or sexual violence from men in their lifetime.

SIXTY SIX MILLION girls are out of school globally.

TWO THIRDS of the world’s illiterate adults are women.

Here in Ireland, the Chime for Change campaign has partnered with Kelloggs Special K and Aoibheann N? Shuilleabh?in is their ambassador. She is encouraging Irish consumers to visit www.specialk.ie/chime and vote for what matters to you; Education, Health or Justice. Kellogg’s Special K will donate based on your vote.

The time is now? #ChimeIn
