Here at Another Mother Runner, we want every woman to feel motivated, confident, and strong. That’s why we love Spark Box, which aims to infuse those same attributes in pre-teen and teen girls. Spark promotes self-worth, self-acceptance, and open mindedness.
Started by three women who (sort of!) remember what it’s like to be Spark-aged and how tough it is to be yourself.
“With the added pressure of social media that Spark girls have to navigate, we wanted to put a positive message into their hands,” says co-founder Eleni Drake. With a Spark subscription, a girl gets a monthly box of handpicked items with a new theme every month so there’s a, well, spark of excitement when each box lands in the mailbox. “Each box has a theme around a big idea we want girls to reflect on, plus a few items to reinforce that big idea. Our tag line is: Be awesome. Be inspired. Be you. We love that girls all over the country receive a reminder each month that they're perfect, exactly the way they are,” gushes Eleni.
Spark sent boxes to a few daughters and nieces of BAMRbassadors. Take a look what they said:
“The Spark boxes are such a great gift idea for the tween or teen girl in your life. My bookworm loved the book box with a super-cute book light and bookmarks. As a Plathofile, I loved the Sylvia Plath finger puppet/magnet--adorable! The inspiration cards in the boxes are great for activity ideas and aspirations.” –mother runner Annaliese
“My girls loved their Spark boxes! On a gloomy, rainy day, I found my daughter sipping hot chocolate (never mind it was spring!) with her feet up showing off her new fun socks from the ‘I am cozy’ box.” –mother runner Kristen
“My smart and fun-loving nieces moved to Florida within a few weeks of school letting out, so they are extra-excited to receive their packages. They love the journal prompts, along with baking the cookies!” –Auntie Pam
“My creative one really loves the writing challenges in her Spark Box. We both loved learning that women invented windshield wipers, Kevlar, chocolate chip cookies, and paper bags!” –mother runner Nicole
To add a spark to the summer vacation of the pre-teen or teen in your life, we’re giving away two 3-month Spark subscriptions.
