Inspiration Tammy Tibbetts – Support SHE IS THE FIRST ORGANIZATION

Make a change – support girls’ education in the developing world with She’s the First, a non-profit organization that is helping them be the first in their families to graduate. I was contacted by Renee Stanzione and Stephanie Scott both volunteers with this amazing non-profit organization ( The minute I read her email I knew I wanted to help support this cause. They have an adorable new gift that gives back: Tie-Dye Cupcake Necklace ($20; 75% from each purchase is donated back to She’s the First). Since inception just a few short years ago, they have raised over $240,000 through fundraisers like their Annual National Tie-Dye Cupcake Bake-off, (this year taking place on November 12-18) the inspiration for the necklace, a friendly national bake-off amongst varying schools and campus chapters across the US to market and host a Tie-Dye cupcake bakesale in their area so that they can learn leadership skills and help to sponsor a girl’s education. I strongly believe education is a key to success! Tammy Tibbetts graduated college with a journalism degree and moved from suburban New Jersey to New York City. Tammy Tibbetts and She’s the First became part of the movement that believes “the best way to fight poverty and extremism is to educate and empower women and girls.”In the process, She’s the First fosters leadership and global awareness in young Americans, by inspiring them to lead creative fundraisers and correspond with sponsored students. Love her efforts to shape a rising generation of well-educated global leaders, future philanthropists, and cross-cultural communicators.

This unique handmade pendant design is being sold to help the She’s the First organization continue to fund girls’ education in the developing world.

This is a vibrant “tie-dye” cupcake, “baked” with a rich magenta and teal colored clay, and the topping of “vanilla frosting” is speckled with real Swarovski crystal rhinestones in bright colors. The light cupcake pendants were “baked”, then finished with a bright gloss so that the charm really shines!

Out of each affordable $20 cupcake necklace sold, $15 will go directly to the She’s the First organization on behalf of Ash Tree Designs. These handmade pendants represent not only a symbol of young girls’ education, but are a fabulous statement piece that is also 100% handmade – no two are the same!

“First, I think girls’ education may be the single most cost-effective kind of aid work. It’s cheap, it opens minds, it gives girls new career opportunities and ways to generate cash, it leads them to have fewer children and invest more in those children, and it tends to bring women from the shadows into the formal economy and society.”

– Nicholas Kristof, Pultizer-Prize winning humanitarian journalist of The New York Times and co-author of Half the Sky
