A Gift That Will Help Change the World

The clock is ticking on holiday shopping, people! But we found a gift you can give right up until the last minute.With this wrapped up, we guarantee you'll have the most meaningful present under the tree. At She's the First, you can sponsor a girl's education in a developing country. The site's directory of schools lists sponsorship programs that tell you exactly where and how you can help.

How is this a holiday gift? you ask.

If you and your group are struggling to think of presents for each other, look no further. Pool some cash that you'd otherwise spend on Starbucks and t-shirts, and check out this directory, which currently includes students in Africa and Asia. You can sponsor a girl for as little as $300/year ($25/month -- or $5/month from each friend/family member if you're a group of 5. Math!).

After you sign on to sponsor a girl, email tammy@shesthefirst.org, and a card will be sent to those you're honoring. Plus, She's the First will post a special holiday greeting to your group on their blog.
