GOLDEN VALLEY, Minn. -- Friday, October 11 marks International Day of the Girl.
World Vision sent on-air staff at KARE a necklace to call attention to both the day and its programs to support young women in education, job training and small business ownership.
The goal is to help young girls avoid a lifetime of poverty and/or sexual slavery.
World Vision's gift catalog raised more than $33 million last year for World Vision programs.
