Empowering Young Girls Through Girl Power

HOW A FATHER’S LOVE, A RUBBER BAND, AND A BALLPOINT PEN BECAME A CATALYST FOR LAUNCHING THE GIRL POWER CAMPAIGN

As my oldest daughter was beginning to face the tween years and the pressures that come with them I felt as a father I needed some way to connect with her. I’ve always been creative making fun things for my kids. I am a mailman, as a kid I wrote messages on stretched rubber bands….quite by accident one day on my mail route I saw a stretched rubber band around my bundle of mail; I wrote a message to my daughter and brought it home and put it on the breakfast bar with a note for her to stretch it to reveal a secret message. She loved it!

I’d write messages to encourage her to follow her dreams, to be who God intended her to be, and that I loved her with all my heart. She looked forward to the rubber band messages to stretch-n-reveal. Her excitement sparked something in me and I began the process of creating stretch-n-reveal bracelets as a product. Over the course of the next several years, through many roadblocks and frustrations I was able to get my unique bracelets manufactured.

Sometime after the Girl Power Bracelets arrived at our door I began thinking of a way to get them in the hands of tween and teen girls. This was quite a process and through it was born Girl Power Campaign. Girl Power is still in its infancy and we are continuing to tweak things making them better and more dynamic. The Campaign is geared to help parents and teen/tween girls. We created a fun and powerful way for parents to help girls develop their own identity, a healthy self-image and to follow their dreams. A small but powerful piece of the campaign are the stretch-n-reveal bracelets used as daily reminders of becoming who they are design to be. There is a place on our website for parents to share helpful stories and information. We provide tips on how to encourage their girls through the five empowerment steps we created.

A couple of years ago as my oldest daughter was pulling out of the driveway heading to college she noticed a rubber band around her gear shifter she took it off, stretched it and revealed the message, ‘I love you, miss you and am so proud of you.” She called me, “Thank you, Daddy, for always being there for me.” She is now a High School math teacher in an inner-city alternative school.
