We're big fans of She's the First, an organization that sponsors girls' education in the developing world, helping them to be the first in their families to graduate. Yeah, pretty awesome. And from November 1-8th, She's the First is asking you to join in an event that you probably want to be a part of... The She's the First Tie-Dye Cupcake Bake-off encourages you to bake, sell and use cupcakes to fundraise for girls who can't afford an education. Form a baking team of friends, classmates or co-workers and sign up here to be counted as part of the movement. Then promote your sale in your community, and start practicing the signature tie-dye cupcakes (that part's not required, but it does add a punch of OH YEAH! to the proceedings).
She's the First makes it easy with the rainbow recipe, a bake sale map (make sure your state is represented!) and a moving story about the cupcake that started it all (that's it, pictured!). Right now, just two cents of every development dollar goes to girls -- but tie-dye cupcakes can help tip the scale. Sign up and get baking!
And lest you think the dying will be hard, this video proves that it's pure fun!
