Annemarie Dooling, a New York twentysomething, is a digital content strategist/blogger and the first person in her family to graduate from college. When she heard about She’s the First, she wanted to rally her friends behind a sponsorship, so she did it in the way she knows: through social media. On Twitter, she asked friends if they wanted to chip in as little as $10 to sponsor primary education for a girl in the Haiti Outreach Program‘s school system — it only costs $100 for a year of her schooling, books, uniform, and lunch meals. To inspire your own tweet-up sponsorship, here’s a quick introduction to the ladies who helped make it happen!
- Gabriella Ribeiro Truman is the president and owner of Trumarketing, and runs a travel website and exclusive deals newsletter called The Explorateur.
- Kathryn Lowry is a proud mama to one-year-old Luke and a native Brooklynite who details her urban experiences at twitter.com/MsBKRunnerUp.
- Lara Ruth works in corporate human resources by day but splits her evenings between her food blog, Grits in the City, and finalizing her first book, a memoir.
