Sarah & Lauren, Northeastern University students

We are so proud of Sarah & Lauren, best friends at Northeastern University in Boston, who have been planning a She’s the First fundraiser for months! You may remember when they announced their plans in our blog here. And now, tonight is the big night! They’ve chosen to fundraise for a sponsorship in Haiti, via the Haiti Outreach Program partner in our directory.

We wish Sarah, Lauren, and their friends tons of fun. We asked them if we could share the Facebook reminder that they sent out to guests this morning, for some behind-the-scenes insight into what goes into planning a party with purpose. (Answer: lots of enthusiasm!) Our campaign developer, Devin Tomb, will be interviewing Lauren & Sarah after the event to share their tips with you all. Stay tuned, and check out more Back-to-School fundraising ideas here!
