THE STORY:


UPDATE: Whoever donates the most, gets to choose the colour that I dye my hair!

So here's the deal:

I want to raise $1000 to help these young women get an education, because they're out there kicking ass, overcoming obstacles and doing everything they can to change their lives. And they are awesome.

I need your help to hit this goal. It's a great thing to do, you know you want to give, but to sweeten the deal, here's what I'll do. If we hit $1000 - I'm going blonde. I'm pretty sure I'll look like some super creepy mashup of Rutger Hauer in Blade Runner and the bad guy from The Bodyguard but I'm hoping that's enough to motivate you to give a little. 

So if you've ever thought that some people that try hard get a raw deal, here's your chance to help fix that.

- Mike

 

 

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.
