SHE’S THE FIRST*{Hofstra} TO SPONSOR EDUCATION FOR TWO GIRLS IN NEPAL

NEW YORK, Nov. 7, 2011 — She’s the First*{Hofstra}, the third national chapter of She’s the First, raised $644 dollars, enough money to sponsor the education of two girls in Nepal, after three days of selling tie-dye cupcakes on campus.

The Hofstra University chapter sold tie-dye cupcakes at the Hofstra Student Center atrium tables on Tuesday, Nov. 1. The chapter also sold cupcakes around different campus buildings and events on Wednesday, Nov. 2 and Thursday, Nov. 3.

“Originally we had planned to make $300, which would be enough to sponsor one girl,” stated Chelsea Tirrell, President of She’s the First*{Hofstra}. “After one day we had raised $300 so we decided to set the bar higher and try and raise $600, enough to sponsor two girls. A $50 donation on Friday, Nov. 4 put us over $600.”

She’s the First is a not-for-profit that sponsors girls’ education in the developing world, helping them be the first in their families to graduate. In order to send one girl to school, it costs approximately $300. For more information please visit www.shesthefirst.org.

We encourage young people to creatively fundraise for girls’ sponsorships with their online and offline social networks. For sponsors, She’s the First provides community, leadership opportunities, and a sense of global citizenship. For underprivileged girls, the impact of a sponsorship is life-changing: Most will be the first in their families to graduate.

Who: She’s The First, and other clubs and vendors

What:  Lackmann’s Harvest Fest

Where:  The Student Center

When:  Wednesday October 26th from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m.

Why:  Why not?  Help She’s The First make a banner featuring students and what they were the first to do, and roam the other vendor tables for free snacks, drinks, and more!

It’s an event you won’t want to miss.  Hope to see you there!

PRestige Agency’s Honest Donations to Breast Cancer

PRestige Agency Bake Sale

Last week, Prestige Agency helped close out October’s Breast Cancer
Awareness month with our very own breast cancer awareness bake sale.
Our table, set up on-campus in front of Dempster Hall, was covered with breast cancer awareness themed cupcakes, cookies and brownies. In addition, we also handed out pink ribbons and breast cancer themed Honest Tea bottles to each person who donated to the cause. The baked goods sold out quickly and our hearts were warmed by all of the wonderful donations and words of support.

Charlsie and Alex with Honest Tea

We were very excited to see how many people were so willing to offer up whatever change they had to help. Fifty percent of the proceeds we raised have been donated to the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Research Fund. We greatly appreciate all of the help from those who donated! Also we would like to give a special thanks to Honest Tea for their generous donation to our bake sale. Next month we will be holding another awareness bake sale, so keep an eye out for our flyers!

If you would like to help our fundraising team plan November’s awareness fundraiser please email agawor1@pride.hofstra.edu.
