Hello again, team! From the bottom of my heart, thank you for supporting my fundraiser for She's the First. As a collective team for the Dare  See more

BENEFITING: SHE'S THE FIRST

ORGANIZER: SHE'S THE FIRST

EVENT DATE: Apr 01, 2016

THE STORY:

I found out about She's the First at the end of 2015, and I think it's a wonderful cause! Girls rule, and I think every girl should have the resources and opportunity to go to school and to succeed. During last year's Bake a Change campaign, I made tie-dye cupcakes to raise a little money to help send a girl to school. This year, I am kicking things up a notch! I DARE MY HAIR for a change!

If I raise $700 by April 1st, I will dye the ends of my hair teal. I chose teal in honor of Sexual Assault Awareness Month in April. Double whammy: girls' education and sexual assault awareness. Can't get much better than that. BUT WAIT...

If I raise $1400 by April 1st, I will get a pixie cut. Because fairy princesses do amazing things, like sponsor a girl to go to school for an ENTIRE year, including but not limited to: books, supplies, lunches, mentorship, tutoring, room and board, etc.

To sweeten things even more, 100% of the proceeds from this campaign will go towards sending a girl to school. How amazing is that?!

SHE'S THE FIRST wrote -

Dare to change your hair color, cut or style on April Fools’ Day if you meet your personal fundraising goal. Choose to wear a wig or dye your ‘do—it’s completely up to you!  

Why April Fools' Day? April 1st is perhaps the most good-humored, joke-filled day of the year…so why not be part of the fun and prank those around you—with purpose. Your light-hearted new look is your chance to start a conversation about a serious issue that this generation has the power to change:

  • 62 million girls around the world are out of school.
  • Only 33% of girls enroll in high school in the countries where She’s the First Scholars live–even less make it to graduation.
  • Girls with a secondary education earn 18 percent more in future wages, have healthier and smaller families, reinvest wealth in their communities, and ultimately break free of the poverty trap.

Our Goal: Together, we aim to fund 25 scholarships, giving girls in low-income countries the chance they otherwise wouldn't have to attend, and graduate from, high school. In the process, we're sure to turn some heads and start valuable conversations for awareness.
