Minnesota-based college marketing agency Campus Media Group is pleased to announce a partnership with She’s the First – an organization that sponsors girls’ education in the developing world to help them be the first in their families to graduate.
Through this partnership, Campus Media Group will provide PSA placement services in hundreds of college newspapers across the U.S. to help spread awareness of the organization’s mission and encourage students to start a campus chapter.
“Being chosen for Campus Media Group’s annual PSA program is a dream come true for She’s the First as we encourage college students from across the country to change the life of a girl in the developing world. Campus publications reach those who already know the benefit of an education, and we hope students will give back by helping send a girl to school who otherwise would not have the opportunity to do so,” She’s the First Campus Coordinator, Monica Townsend said.
Currently, there are ten campus chapters in the U.S. that host one fundraiser per semester for a girl in need and work to spread awareness through their residence halls, student centers, local communities, and social media.
For more information on starting a campus chapter or sponsoring a girl in need, please visit shesthefirst.org.
If your student publication would like to donate advertising space to this organization to help it spread the word, please contact Campus Media Group at 952-698-7367.
Activity is ramping up for campus planning, and there are lots of new updates you should be aware of.
