iBbeautiful Celebrates The Day of The Girl October 10 2014, 0 Comments

On October 11th, IBbeautiful is thrilled to be a part of the international community celebrating the UN’s Day of the Girl. This Saturday, October 11th, join us in celebrating, discussing, and highlighting the women and girls who are leading the way towards gender equality. IBbeautiful will be honoring the Day of the Girl this year by coming together as an organization to develop a strategic plan for how to make the greatest impact with our boxes of inspiration.

The Day of the Girl is not devoted to one specific issue facing our girls today, but is a yearly reflection of what women and girls have achieved so far, and what still needs to be done.

How IBb helps our girls:

Empowering young girls with confidence, educational resources, and a strong sense of self is the key to creating a more equitable society. IBbeautiful boxes encourage girls to be unique, brave, and strong in the face of adversity. Some of the challenges we’ll be tackling over the next few months with our IBb subscribers include navigating friendships, breaking out of gender stereotypes, and bouncing back after making mistakes. The IBb team, as mothers, daughters, sisters, and friends, understand the unique set of challenges that girls face in today’s world.

How IBb helps others help our girls:

For those of you with young daughters, nieces, or students, you know it’s not always easy to bring up these sensitive issues. That’s where IBbeautiful comes in – We give you a vehicle to discuss challenges that face our girls. Our box is full of fun, new, and exciting lifestyle items that make our message approachable to young girls. By including confidence building and empowering messages in each month’s box, we give you an opportunity to sit down with your young girls to discuss our message in a way that is both fun and rewarding.

 

What you can do to celebrate the Day of the Girl:

Learn about the girls in your community that are making a difference. Is there a local charity that focuses on girls’ empowerment? Do you have friends who participate in school clubs, fundraisers, or bake sales? The Day of the Girl is the perfect opportunity to reach out to those organizations and individuals who are taking action.

Get inspired by girls making an impact on a global scale. Check out some of the girls that embody the IBbeautiul message:
