Welcome to Be a Change Agent November on iTwixie!

All November long, we’re going to change things in our every day world, to make our world a better place. How? It’s easy!

WE WILL BE THE CHANGE WE WANT TO SEE!

Each of us plays a role in helping to create the world we want to see. And for girls, it’s even more important now than ever. Most of you have told us that you don’t like the stories about girls you see on TV and in the movies. You say that a lot of the time, the girls on TV and in movies aren’t like you. You tell us that you want to see more girls on TV and in movies that you can relate to; are more like you.

But you also tell us that you want to see all kinds of girls — not girls who look just like you — but girls who are dealing with the same kind of things that you are dealing with.

So, let’s do it. Let’s ask for these stories. What are they? Tell us! Speak up! Let’s talk about the things we all deal with, every day, that might make a good TV show or movie. Let’s be Change Agents!

What else do we want to change? Share those things with us, too!

Got more ideas? Tell us those, too!

Then, on November 30, we’ll award one of you the title of iTwixie Change Agent! Maybe it will be YOU! The winner will get:
- an official Day of the Girl 2016 t-shirt, signed by iTwixie’s founder, Rebecca
- a special feature on the Home Page of iTwixie in December, with an interview and picture, and
- to choose the theme for December

Have fun, girls, and show off how you can Be a Change Agent this November!

“It was a Thanksgiving I will never forget. My family had just sat down to a table overflowing with delicious dishes when the doorbell rang. When I went to answer the door I couldn’t believe who was standing there…” A cute little girl with the serious grey eyes. She said her name was Nico and that her parents and two siblings were at the homeless shelter. She said that they didn’t approve of begging, but they didn’t have any food, even though they were at a homeless shelter. We invited her in and gave her two heaps of mashed potatoes, one scoop of cranberry sauce, three piles of stuffing, half the turkey and a pumpkin pie. She asked if we could drive her back, and my parents and cousins, aunts and uncles, grandmas and grandpas, all piled in our minivan like sardines. The shelter sure was a drab place. The walls were grey and crumbling. On the bright side, the food cheered everyone up. A toothless old lady actually hugged me! When we left I felt SO thankful to have a non-crumbling roof over my head. It was the most touching Thanksgiving EVER.” — @LocoGirl

“It was a Thanksgiving I will never forget. My family had just sat down to a table overflowing with delicious dishes when the doorbell rang. When I went to answer the door I couldn’t believe who was standing there…” My grandfather? But I thought he died. It looks exactly like him, his smile, his eyes, everything! But I couldn’t believe it, it can’t be true. Suddenly his smile vanished. ‘What’s wrong Amy?’ He asked. I took a step back, ‘Ummmm Who are you?’ His smile appeared again, ‘It’s me, Grandpa Wilson.’ ‘Uhhhh OK, MOOOOMMMM!’ I shouted. My mother appeared, when she saw the man who was supposedly my grandfather she screamed. His smile disapeared again and he muttered something under his breath. I turned to see my mother out cold on the floor, when I turned around the man vanished right in front of me. ‘OK I’m gonna need a bucket of water and a towel STAT!’” — @SkyHigh02
