Gita Veja's Birthday Celebration

I would prefer DONATIONS instead of BIRTHDAY GIFTS for 28 Too Many because young girls are subjected to avertible suffering.

28 Too Many

We research, educate and campaign to end female genital mutilation (FGM)

Charity Registration No. 1150379

Story

FGM is not female circumcision! 

It is a brutal practice on babies and young girls without consent that results in lifelong unbearable pain..........it is totally unnecessary and has no medical benefits.

I have always been aware of FGM, this extreme practice in which very young girls are subjected to within certain cultures around the world. However, I was unaware of the extent of the harm and cruelty of this practice until Tara bought it to my attention. It is a cause that Tara and I feel very strongly about and we thought it was a good idea to raise money for this charity through donations from my guests rather than buy birthday gifts for me.

Therefore, if you were kindly planning on buying me a birthday gift, I would appreciate it very much if you could instead make a donation to this charity.  Looking forward to seeing you all then. xx
