One of the most important things we do here at Monday Sparkles is to support non profit organizations that are aligned to our mission. We are so grateful and humbled to have Girls On The Run as our partner.
This past Saturday, Monday Sparkles had so much fun at our non profit partner's Girls On The Run 5k themed Dreams in Motion. The energy was amazing, watching these girls and their community of friends and family cross the finish line was inspirational.
Post 5k and threading into the theme of the day and their mission, we had a gratitude activity where everyone had so much fun penning their thoughts on what they were grateful for.
why it matters
Girls face social pressures and conflicting messages about how they should act and who they should be. Studies show that by adolescence, girls' confidence drops about twice as much as boys'. Friendships become more complicated and challenging, girls' perception of their academic ability declines, the likelihood of anxiety and depression increases and participation in physical activity plummets.
It doesn't have to be this way.
We believe that EVERY GIRL is inherently FULL OF POWERand POTENTIAL. By knowing they are the leaders of their lives, these are the girls who WILL CHANGE THE WORLD.
