Last night, She’s the First Ambassador Ale Foresto hosted a poker night for a small group of friends — and raised enough money to send three girls to school in Tanzania. Since an anonymous donor is matching all She’s the First sponsorships to Village Schools International, that means she really sent six girls to school, with just some poker chips and cupcakes!
Ale baked the same tie-dyed cupcakes used to raise $900 dollars at a University of Notre Dame fundraiser. They’re becoming a huge hit! Plus, Ale was able to score donated gifts for the top four places in the poker game: A Victoria’s Secret bag of goodies worth $150, a stack of books, chocolate-covered Godiva pretzels, and a scented candle kit.
If you want to turn your next get together into a fundraiser for girls’ education, try securing a few prizes and collecting a few dollars from everyone in your group (Ale charged $15 per person to play, plus $10 to rebuy chips). It’s a fun way to turn your average Friday-night hangout into a cool fundraiser for girls’ ed!
