Education

Stephen Colbert invades Norway through twitter to get girls an education-and he needs your help

Stephen Colbert wants you to join him in getting girls an education. In his own words, he says he cares about girls’ education, in part at least, because his mother “was one once.”

At 1:30 in the video, Colbert explains exactly how important it is to support funding for the Global Partnership for Education.

And at about 1:45 he tells how his plan to make this a reality includes invading Norway….via twitter.

So join Stephen Colbert’s twitter invasion of Norway by sending a tweet in TAKE ACTION NOW, which urges Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg to lead the world community by increasing its commitment to education by giving the Global Partnership for Education $100 million USD each year for the next 5 years.

As a bonus- check out a fun Malala cameo at about 2:25.
