Birthdays should be about giving not getting! My birthday girls education in Guatemala with a donation to She's The First.

Dear friends, family and everyone else who has stumbled onto this page through social media, my blog or word of mouth,

Let me set the stage...the big one was my 30th birthday in 2009 - that was the year Cause It's My Birthday was born and we raised $20,000 for Netting Nations and for malaria nets in Ghana.

Ever since then, I haven't been able to shake the power of social media to help drive social change.

I'm at it again! This year, I'm celebrating my Sweet Sixteen (x2) and 100% of online donations and donations at my birthday party will go to She's The First.

She's The First supports girls education in the developing world. The partner school I've chosen is Starfish One By One School in Solola, Guatemala. Only $300 provides a scholarship to one girl for one year.

I am so incredibly passionate about education and girls. Education is quite simply not an option for many girls in many parts of the world. Often it's because families can't afford the very basic school costs. I've researched nonprofits in this space and have been a supporter of She's The First for the past year. I carefully picked this school in Guatemala and have talked to volunteers who have been there on the ground and met the students. Your donations go DIRECTLY to support these students and provide them with a future that is not possible without your support.

Every dollar counts. Thank you for your donations and for supporting my birthday wish.

Please join me in making a donation today and reaching my goal of $16,000.
