13.54. Girl Rising

March 21, 2013

I received the following email today. I think this would be incredible to make this happen with a screening at the Cinema Carousal in Muskegon. Take the time to watch the clip and afterwards order your tickets, its worth it.

Subject: Fw: Girl Rising – An Invitation To An Inspiring Movie

To all my wonderful family and friends,

I’m organizing a film screening at the Cinema Carousel Theater. The film is called Girl Rising and tells the stories of 9 girls from around the world who face – and overcome – unbelievable obstacles on the path toward getting an education. The film was created by 10×10, a global campaign to educate and empower girls. Each girl’s story is narrated by a cast of great actresses, including Meryl Streep, Kerry Washington, Anne Hathaway, Salma Hayek, Alicia Keys, and others.

Go watch it.  Seriously.  Take the 2 minutes and 27 seconds to WATCH THIS TRAILER.  I am 100% certain that once you watch it, YOU WILL NOT WANT TO MISS THIS MOVIE!

I’m planning the screening for Thursday April 11th at 7:30PM.  I am asking ALL of you to come out for it.   It is so incredibly important for us to support young women all the world – not just in our own community.  I would love to see you, your family, and your friends come to this wonderfully inspiring film!  I am also encouraging you to bring the men in your lives, and every teenager you know!  Not just teenage girls – but teenage boys as well.  I believe it is very important for everyone to see this movie.


It is an honor to be able to bring this movie to our hometown.  Please note:  I MUST have 100 tickets reserved by Wednesday March 26th in order to be able to show the film.  It is very important that you reserve your ticket online today!  You can sign up to buy a ticket for the movie here:   I also want to stress to you that tickets will NOT be available at the door.  If you are able to attend the screening, you must reserve tickets online ahead of time.  If you need me to do that for you, please do not hesitate to contact me.

A portion of Girl Rising ticket sales will help fund programs for girls, so seeing the film literally makes an impact on girls’ lives.  You will also have an opportunity to learn another way you can help take action.

Please take a moment to pass this email on to all of your friends.  Encourage them to come and bring their own friends.  This movie will inspire you and lead you to inspiring change and make the world a better place.

Wishing you all the best for you and those you love,

Penny Sue Cooper
