When I came across “The Sparkle Project BC” and discovered that this is an initiative emerging from my home province, British Columbia, I knew I just had to share information!
“The Sparkle Project BC” is a movement that seeks to inspire and equip young girls to lead healthy, self-confident, and successful lives.The women of Sparkle are pooling their collective wisdom to create inspirational and practical resources for young women. These resources include a book entitled Sparkle: An Inspirational Handbook for Young Girls, a Barrett-Stuart-penned song called ‘Sparkle’, Sparkle fundraising merchandise, workshops across British Columbia, and much more. Partial proceeds from all Sparkle activities will fund bursaries for young girls who need financial assistance to pursue their dreams.
Needless to say, as a Mom of a near 12 year old girl, I am keenly interested in “The Sparkle Project BC”!
