We are Fanny and Patricia, the founders of Monday Sparkles, a tween subscription box company that brings Earth, love, and sparkle to the lives of tweens. Our boxes are carefully curated with these themes in mind to inspire girls to be great global citizens, learn the importance of self-love, gain confidence and be a part of a special community that celebrates this transformative stage.
Our story and goal is simple, we are moms with a common goal who want to bring positivity, fun, and eco-consciousness into the lives of as many tween girls as possible. We also want to teach our girls the value of giving back. So for each box sold we will donate $1 to either a charity or a worthy organization. Our SparkleTribe will help decide to whom the donations go to through recommendations and nominating process.
So, the big question: Why tweens? Preadolescence or the "Tween Years" can bring its own challenges and anxieties, and, unlike most of the phases of childhood before this, crucial elements of preadolescence are starkly different for boys and girls. It is here that anxieties, development, and self-esteem can take unwanted turns. Enter social media and the ugly aspects of bullying, body image, and peer relationships can quickly spiral out of control. But it doesn't have to be this way. And this is why as mothers of young daughters, we started Monday Sparkles. We want to reinforce the positive and help girls across the country celebrate this special time in their lives. One box at a time.
