We have been honored to work with She’s the First, an amazing charity that believes “the best way to fight poverty and extremism is to educate and empower women and girls.” She’s the First launched in November 2009, on the belief that money could affordably be raised for girls’ education through the creativity of young people. Through various channels they have managed to create a movement to accomplish their goals. From selling prom dresses to cupcakes to wristbands; the creativity of She’s the First has never ceased to amaze us here at Reminderband.
On 10.11.12 the first-ever International Day of the Girl will commence. On the coat tails of various movements to empower women and girls across the globe, these including importantly She’s the First and their commitment to women everywhere. She’s the First will be holding a Leadership Summit on October 11th to honor the Day of the Girl as well as bring together their chapter leaders to celebrate the nearly $30,000 dollars raised thus far to support girl’s education in developing countries.
The movement they are supporting is unexplainably important. Four out of five girls don’t graduate high school in many countries, because 40 million of those girls are not able to even attend school. She’s the First has empowered amazing young women to support this cause. One of which is Lindsay Brown, president of their University of Notre Dame chapter. You can find her as the cover girl of Seventeen’s October 2012 issue as the winner of their “Pretty Amazing” reader contest. More than 13 million girls around the world will read her story about sponsoring girls in Nepal; resulting in action.
At Reminderband we strive to support the most amazing causes across the nation. She’s the First has continually struck us as one of these perfect organizations with only the best intentions at heart.
If you are a company or individual that feels in some way you can contribute to the She’s the First Leadership Summit on October 11th contact Tammy Tibbetts, President of She’s the First at 609-439-8896.
