Exciting news! Shekina and CNN

Hello Everyone!

We received some exciting news from some of our contacts at CNN, one of the largest news networks in the USA. Because of Shekina's article on breast ironing in Cameroon, they will be airing a story sometime early this week! We will post a link to their piece once it is available.

This is an incredibly exciting opportunity to raise awareness of this issue and make an impact on audiences around the world. A huge congratulations to Shekina for her courage to tell this untold story! This is an amazing piece of evidence of what can happen when we raise our voices for change here on PulseWire.

Stay tuned to see what happens next!

Many blessings to you all,
Scott

Story is live!

Hello again,

The story is now live on CNN at this link: http://www.cnn.com/2011/WORLD/africa/07/27/cameroon.breast.ironing/index...

It is currently the number one popular story on their site, with thousands of comments. Hopefully this presses forward the conversation, and brings awareness of the issue to many more people. Thank you to our sister Shekina for bringing it to our attention.

Warm blessings,
Scott
