Dear Leonie,

We are thrilled to have you as a new member in our thriving community of women who are lifting their voices in the name of empowerment and connecting across borders to make positive change for women everywhere!

I have learned so much about the urgent work of the Lambi Fund from the women of PotoFanm+Fi and it is an honor to now welcome you here to our community. I hope that you will use your journal to introduce Lambi's projects with our community - as many are hungry for information on what's happening with women on the ground in Haiti and how they can support women's needs and voices.

I would like to invite you to participate in our Action Blogging Campaign on Ending Gender Based Violence, especially from the Haitian perspective. Learn more here: http://www.worldpulse.com/pulsewire/programs/action-blogging-campaign-gbv

Also, please join the PotoFanm+Fi members in our Organizing Group: http://www.worldpulse.com/pulsewire/groups/17967

In friendship and solidarity, Jade
