Girl Rising is a documentary created through a non-profit called 10x10, which aims to improve education for girls around the world. Meryl Streep, Anne Hathaway, Alicia Keys, Salma Hayek and Selena Gomez are among those who narrate the stories of nine girls from around the world who overcome incredible odds to reach their potential.
10x10 has partnered with a crowd-sourcing organization called Gathr, which helps to being screenings to local communities based on the level of interest -- so the more of you who sign up to reserve seats, the greater the guarantee that the screening will happen in the Bedford Playhouse theatre on March 14th at 7:30pm.
To give you an idea about the film, here is the trailer http://youtu.be/BJsvklXhYaE
If you are interested in coming, sign up now here http://gathr.us/screening/761 Note: your card will ONLY be charged in the event the theatre "tips" (i.e., we sign up enough ticket buyers to ensure that the screening will happen.) If the theatre doesn't tip, you will not be charged anything. A portion of all Girl Rising ticket sales will help fund girls’ programs around the world.
