#GIRLSWITHDRILLS IS FIGHTING FOR INCLUSIVITY
We think making stuff is too much fun for any child to be excluded. So we're doing something about it. We both love inventing and making. More important than our love for tinkering are the confidence and problem solving skills we've gained through our hobbies.
#girlswithdrills was born after we found shared frustrations over the lack of confidence in children, and especially girls, we work with. We want to start a conversation. Why are so many people not able to access the vital skills needed for them to thrive in the future?!
We believe that by giving children equal access to making, we're helping them gain the skills they need for careers they otherwise wouldn't consider. We are encouraging tomorrow's inventors, programmers and tinkerers. Afterall, many of today's children will have jobs that don't yet exist.
And don't fret, just because we are campainging under the banner #girlswithdrills, does not mean that everyone else is left out. You can do your bit to help. With every #girlswithdrills top purchased, Bright Box Makerspace will provide a young person in a disadvantaged area with a maker session free of charge. Please use these tops to start conversations with friends, strangers and loved ones about equal opportunity in making.
The #girlswithdrills campaign is running from the 10th of November to the 1st of December 2017. To support the campaign, share your projects with the hashtag #girlswithdrills and pictures of your new top.
Our elves will do their best to ship these shirts in time for the holidays. Due to shipping times for international orders, we cannot guarantee delivery before 25th of December 2017. Orders close 1st of December 2017.
