Today’s featured cause is The Pinky Promise Project! Two teenage girls are making a difference by promoting respect for women in a fun way.
Here’s how it works: they visit public places with a bag full of flowers and hand them to young men and ask them to pinky-promise to respect, appreciate, and value all the women in their lives. They then give them a colored flower that they are to give to any girl they see (and a Reminderband wristband to help them remember their promise!). Each flower’s color represents a type of respect that will be explained to the boy when he receives it. Attached is a note with a powerful quote and information about the project as well as clues about what the color represents.
“The idea behind it is that with the pinky promise, boys become more aware of what it means to respect women and the girl receiving the flower is reminded that she deserves the utmost respect and should never get anything less.”
