How the New Blogger of the Month Works
For each month in 2017, our iTwixie Team will choose 5 girls to be featured in a vote for Blogger of the Month. Then we all get to vote for who we think ought to win. The winner will get a prize! Once you’ve won Blogger of the Month, your next chance to be featured again in the vote will be in the following year, so that more girls get the chance to win. Sound fun? Get blogging and voting and maybe YOU will be our next Blogger of the Month!

Good luck, girls!

What Your Friend Likes About You
blogger of the month

See if you can write a blog post about what your friend likes about you. Try not to write it about yourself, but instead, write it as if you are writing as your friend.

Here’s how:
Pretend you are her.
Would your friend say that you are a good friend? Why?
What makings hanging out with you fun?
Do you have special things that you say to each other that make you laugh?
How does it make her feel when you and she do something to celebrate a special occasion?
Is she sad when you go on vacation or when you go away on a trip? Why? What does she miss?

Write a blog or write a paragraph right here! You don’t have to answer all of these questions. Let them help you think of ideas. And have fun writing this! This is going to be so fun!

Join the Friendship Bracelet Exchange
Friendship Bracelet DIY

Here’s how you can join iTwixie’s Friendship Bracelet Exchange! It’s so fun! Here’s how YOU can join the fun:

1. Make a bracelet and put it in an envelope addressed to:

iTwixie Friendship Bracelet Exchange
4551 Forbes Avenue, Suite 203
Pittsburgh, PA 15213

2. Write a note for the girl who’ll get it! Say something like: “Hi! I’m Rebecca and I live near Pittsburgh! Hope you love your bracelet.”

3. Put an extra envelope in, too, that has 2 stamps on it and is addressed to YOU! This is how you’ll get a bracelet back!

REMEMBER: Wrap the bracelet that you send in another piece of paper, or a little plastic bag. It will protect it! And be sure to write HAND DELIVER on your envelope so they don’t put your package in a machine. And then, your bracelet will arrive within TWO WEEKS!

Let’s see if we can get 200 girls to play this game before iTwixie’s 8th Anniversary, which is May 14, 2017!

Ready? GET SET! Go! Tell your friends! It’s so fun to play this game with a bunch of our BFFs!

Thanks, Honestly, for this great picture and DIY tutorial for making friendship bracelets :)

For the Good. Period.
10372765_782327828472247_6872334537507959162_n

If we talk about getting your period, do you feel uncomfortable? Do you think your period is too personal to talk about on iTwixie? Is getting your period something you dread? Worry about? Are scared about happening? Have no idea about?

Look at the world around you. Pretty much every female in your life who is in high school or older has a period. Some girls don’t get their period until later in high school, sure. But truth is, most girls today get their period by 13.

And even more truthful than that, is the simple fact that getting your period is natural. It’s part of growing up. And if you’re a girl, you’re going to get it.

Why the fuss? We don’t know. But in some parts of the world, getting your period is such a big deal that you stay home when you have it. You don’t go to school the week you get your period. And then, sometimes, if you miss so much school, you drop out of school. And then you don’t get a good education. And then you don’t get to make your own choices or try to make your dreams come true. And then you end up sad, in poverty or worse, in a marriage that you didn’t even choose.

Pretty crazy, eh?

We learned about this group called For the Good Period. And they are amazing. They go to parts of the world where girls stop going to school when they are on their period, and they help to change that. They bring the stuff you need when you’re on your period. They help educate people in those small towns to understand that getting your period is as natural as sleeping. And they make a huge difference in the lives of thousands of girls by simply talking about these little, tiny truths.

Now meet seventh grader, Ella Lindenberg, who took it upon herself to raise money to help girls in Kenya stay in school when they are on their period.

In the Fall of 2016, she raised money by organizing a bake sale for  For The Good Period.

There you go, girls. A little fun info about how we can make a difference by just being truthful, candid and comfortable with things that are as natural as sleep.

Enjoy your day! And let us know if you want to learn more about cool groups like For the Good Period.
