I support companies that stand for girls being who they want, like Toward the Stars: http://towardthestars.com/
In support of Toward the Stars I’ve listed Henrietta The Dragon Slayer in their store.
Founded by Inês Almeida, Toward the Stars mission is:
The World’s Marketplace For Empowering Gifts For Girls
We are a tribe of parents, educators, business leaders, entrepreneurs, activists, artists, craftspeople, and loving adults coming together in defense of healthy girlhood.
This marketplace provides a safe haven from the commercialisation and sexualisation of girlhood, from the toxic gender stereotypes that dominate the marketing, media, and products targeted to children and young adults.
A place full of gifts that inspire and enable girls to reach for the stars. Offering a venue that motivates and supports artists, business and craftspeople to innovate and explore new products that have the potential to change the world.
Toward the Stars has products that:
- support Girl Power!
- underscore No Labels No Limitations
- offer Earth Loving Gifts
- and, celebrate “the efforts of our allies: the not-for-profit organizations that are making the world a better place for all girls and the for-profit businesses that contribute a good portion of their revenue to worthy causes.”
Kudos to Ines’ vision, chutzpah, and community!
I’m thrilled to be a part of her community.
