Help Us Make A Powerful Noise

What a powerful and worthy way to spend a day at the movies on March 5th! I checked our zip code at and found a participating theatre nearby. With 450 theatres across the country presenting this important documentary, you are sure to find one near your home town as well. I hope you all join me in Making a Powerful Noise to honor women around the world, and help find solutions for global poverty.

Fathom, CARE and ONE are proud to present a one-night event featuring the
acclaimed documentary “A Powerful Noise,” followed by a live town hall discussion with leading humanitarian experts and activists. The event celebrates International Women’s Day and highlights the important role that women play in bringing lasting solutions to global poverty. Broadcast live from New York City, this inspiring event will take place in select movie theatres nationwide on Thursday, March 5, 2009 at 7:30PM ET / 6:30PM CT / 5:30PM MT and tape delayed at 8PM PT and 7PM in Hawaii.

The live panel will include Natalie Portman, former U.S. Secretary of State and Principal of The Albright Group LLC Madeleine K. Albright, CARE president and CEO Dr. Helene Gayle; CARE advocate for maternal health and contributing editor for Marie Claire Christy Turlington Burns; and Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, New York Times columnist and acclaimed author Nicholas Kristof.

Thank you Mama T. I'm lucky to have such a wonderful, supportive mother-in-law!
It's so nice to "see" you here, but I wish we still lived closeby so we could see you in person. We're really looking forward to spending time with you and Papi at the Beach House this summer!
