Sarah Darling Performed at CARE’s International Women’s Day
Sarah Darling performed last week for over a thousand advocates who gathered in Wahington, D.C. at CARE’s Conference and International Women’s Day Celebration. CARE is the leading humanitarian organization fighting poverty and has been in operation for over sixty years.
The annual conference brings together activists from all over the nation, professionals in the media, politicians, corporations and leaders in global health aiming to support CARE’s goal of raising critical funding and creating programs to improve the lives of marginalized women and girls all over the globe. Former First Lady Laura Bush was among the attendees.
The Tuesday night kick-off of the conference, marking the 100th anniversary of International Women’s Day, featured a special concert with Sarah Darling as well as Crystal Bowersox, India.Arie, and Michael Franti.
“It was amazing to look around the room and see women and girls from all over the world celebrating together. I feel very fortunate to have grown up having all of the things I needed. Sometimes we take those things for granted. It’s always good to be able to see the bigger picture and realize that there are a lot of people around the world hurting. I was honored to be a part of such a wonderful event.” -Sarah Darling
Darling became involved with the conference this year because of her ties with Join My Village, a social change initiative which supports women and girls in Malawi, sponsored by CARE, General Mills and Merck.
