If You Find This Letter on July 27!
Lady Project members will be logging on on Monday, July 27 for a special Lady Project Book Club with Hannah Brencher, author of If You Find This Letter, founder of The World Needs More Love Letters, and past Lady Project 3x3 speaker and workshop leader. Hannah will be discussing her book with moderator and 2014 Lady Project Summit keynote Tammy Tibbetts of She's the First.
We will send the details about the streaming link a day before the event-- keep an eye out for the link in your email!
This event is free, but we hope that you make a donation to She's the First. She's the First sponsors girls' education in low-income countries, giving them the chance to become the first in their families to graduate from secondary school.

- She's the FirstPresident/Founder, present
In 2009, Tammy had the idea to launch a social media-driven media campaign that would inspire Millennial women to fundraise for girls’ education sponsorships. She shared her concept with a Facebook friend, Christen Brandt (now Director of International Operations), and they launched She’s the First. By 2012, She's the First was a thriving non-profit organization and her full-time job.
Today, She’s the First sponsors more than 280 girls around the world and has funded nearly 600 years of education, while also supporting a network of 80 co-ed campus chapters. She’s the First takes a forward-thinking approach in connecting students and alumni globally, so they can collaborate with each other on solutions for a better world.
Tammy is a frequent speaker on social entrepreneurship and Millennial leadership and has been recognized among Fast Company’s League of Extraordinary Women and Forbes’ 30 Under 30 in Education. She is the 2013 recipient of Diane von Furstenberg’s People’s Voice Award. (As proof that immense change is possible: 10 years earlier, she was voted Most Shy in her high school yearbook.)
When not running She’s the First, Tammy is running around Central Park or to fitness class.
