Dear amazing power house women,
 
Every year we celebrate the International Women's Day as EWTF (Education for Women Turkey Fund). This year we have a wonderful speaker who is another power house woman that most of us know very well: Dr. Neva Ciftcioglu Banes, a scientist, a popular public speaker as well as a very successful columnist with one of the highest internet reader numbers in Turkey . Her recent public speech at a major Medical School in Istanbul has brought many studentsall around the country together to show that young people need not only education but also real life inspirations. We are so lucky to have her as our guest speaker!  Her speech will not only inspire usjust like her mind provoking and witty weekly columnsthat we love to read,  but it will also remind us how powerful we are when we come together for a common goal which is to help the education of underprivileged girls in Turkey.
 
We will be serving a light lunch and refreshments. We will also have a used book sale both in Turkish and English as part of our fundraising. This is a great way of expanding yourpersonal library while helping a cause.
 
We have dedicated this important day to a young female college student Ozgecan Arslanli who was brutally murderedgoing home from her school in 2015.  Her unfortunate death has created so much emotionin the Turkish public particularly among women that wealso have decided to make her name live through a Memorial Fund in her honor. The funds we have collected helped us to provide two scholarships last year.  This year we hope to raise at least the same amount of funds with your generosity and help.
 
Please join us on March 5th, 2016 at 11 am to celebrate International Women's Day and please invite family, friends and co-workers. Bring your husbands,  teenagers!  Please check out the attachment for details and RSVP information.  Let's get inspired and encouraged together!
 
Best regards,
