BENEFITING: SHE'S THE FIRST
EVENT DATE: Jul 05, 2016
Hello friends! Every year on my birthday, I make a 'birthday campaign'. This basically means that I ask my family and friends to donate to the charity of my choice (one of which I change every year) instead of buying me a present.
- For my 20th birthday, I picked She's The First. This charity funds scholarships for girls in low-income countries who show scholastic merit, leadership, and a financial need. Here is a short video highlighting the change this organization creates: https://vimeo.com/38755823
- I picked India as the country I would like to sponsor because it holds a special place in my heart. I moved to South India when I was thirteen and resided there until I turned sixteen. During my stay, I was able to gain a better understanding of the country my family is from and I was born in. Moving across the world as an early teen really helped shape the person I am today and gain a better perspective of the world around me. Donating to the girls in India to gain better access to valuable resources to help shape their lives would be phenomenal. Here's the link to a documentary on a girl's life that was changed in India because of She's The First: https://vimeo.com/62444568
Please donate as much as you wish to and know that you are giving me an amazing birthday present as well as aiding a global cause. Also, feel free to share this link!
