If you know Nawi, then you already know that the inspiration for our Nawi Dinos came from a little girl who could't find any dinosaur things made for her. And from there we started seeing all the ways in which girls could use a little extra attention. So we committed to helping and inspiring girls everywhere to do all the things they want, by giving back to organizations whose purpose is to inspire girls to become great women.
Today we launch Wee Women Wednesdays. Every second Wednesday we'll highlight an organization that has come up with unique ways to enrich the lives of little girls, and encourage them to become better people. We also commit to giving part of the month's profits to the featured nonprofit.
This month we feature WriteGirl:
"To introduce girls to a wide variety of writing genres;
To teach a robust set of writing and critical analysis skills;
To encourage girls to explore and develop their creative talents, both written and oral;
To nurture girls and promote healthy behaviors and life choices through positive mentoring relationships with women writers;
To assist girls in preparing for college;
To inspire girls to pursue careers in writing, such as journalism, public relations, screenwriting, songwriting, corporate communications, publishing, website content producing, editing or creative writing;
To equip girls with communication tools to confidently navigate the challenges they face; and
To produce a full slate of program activities throughout the year so that we may serve as many girls as possible (including seven full-day writing workshops annually, a gala public reading and publication of a book each season, college visits and other special outings, and ongoing creative writing mentoring)."*
