BENEFITING: SHE'S THE FIRST

ORGANIZER: SHE'S THE FIRST

EVENT DATE: Apr 01, 2016

Sarah Rohrschneider

THE STORY:

I've always had a love-hate relationship with my hair: too curly, too thin, too thick, too dark. Now I have one of the best tasks of all: to challenge myself to change my hair while raising money to support a girl to go to school, finish her secondary education, and be the first to graduate out of her family. Interning at She's the First has been an eye-opening experience where I found that $1400 not only gives a girl in a low-income country such as Uganda an entire year's tuition but also gives her the out of class room life skills support that she needs within her community she might not otherwise receive (self-defense, how to use her voice outside the classroom), the room and board, her everyday lunches... It's all inclusive.

So here's my dare...If I can raise $700 dollars that will 100 percent go toward a scholar's tuition, I will wear a blonde wig all day on April Fool's Day [and take loads of photos!]. If I can make it to $1400, I am going to book an appointment to dye my hair lighter, just as you see in my photos. That's right. From dark dark brown to blonde. 

Thanks for helping out. Xo - Sarah

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.
