From Marie Curie to Bessie Coleman, Irena Sendler to Florence Nightingale, Patsy Mink to Malala - GIRLS CAN! CRATE inspires girls to BE and DO anything by introducing them to fearless women who made the world better.
Girls are AWESOME and have been changing the world FOREVER. Yet, in 2016, most products designed for girls are about princesses, beauty, and care taking. Between 3-4 years old, little ones begin to adopt gender stereotypes and girls start to define some things, like math and science, as being “for boys.” As they grow, studies show that girls are less likely to think they have “what it takes.” We think girls deserve more!
We created GIRLS CAN! CRATE to show girls how AMAZING they are and we think role models are a big part of that. Did you know that when Bessie Coleman was told she couldn’t become a pilot in America, she taught herself French, sailed across the ocean, and became the first American to earn an International Pilot’s License? Or that Patsy Mink was rejected from 20 medical schools because she was female, so she became a congresswoman and wrote Title IX to end gender discrimination in educational programs? How amazing is that?!
Sally Ride said, “You cannot be what you cannot see.” We think the more girls learn about women like Bessie and Patsy, the more fearless they’ll grow — believing in themselves and their potential to make the world better, too! Each month, we deliver a crate (AKA a cool box) to your door filled with everything you need to introduce girls to fearless female role models who show them ALL the things they can be. To make our mission a reality, we will donate 10% of the proceeds from every single GIRLS CAN! CRATE purchased to nonprofit organizations giving girls resources to succeed. Together, we can show girls they can BE and DO anything. So, move over princesses, because real women make the best heroes and GIRLS CAN! CRATE is delivering them!
