Are you inspired by women around you? I know that I take inspiration from all types of amazing women in this world. If we don't support one another then we really can't call ourselves powerful women. Morocconoil has teamed up with some really innovative and amazing women in their #Inspiredbywomen series. It's a series that discovers beauty through inspiration and I can honestly say that watching the videos on Youtube, makes me want to actually hunker down and do something to make a difference in this world. What am I doing to make a difference? It truly only takes one person to make a difference and why can't that person be me?
I watched all of these videos and with each one, I really had to take a look at myself and ask "What am I inspired by and what do I do to inspire others?" It kind of makes you think about your actions and what is meaningful to your person and the persons around you. Check out some of the videos in the INSPIRED series, directed by Bryce Dallas Howard and you'll want to get off your butt too.
What do you think of these inspirational initiatives by some amazing women?
What would you do to save an animal from suffering? On Puerto Rico's “Dead Dog Beach,” Chrissy Beckles discovered thousands of abandoned and abused dogs—and was inspired to lace on her boxing gloves and devote her life to fighting for them.
Sometimes, art can help give kids a voice when words fail. Rebecca Welsh’s HALO Foundation works with children facing hardship around the world, providing them with the support and supplies they need to unlock their creativity and self-expression so they can move forward and contribute to their communities.
The most inspiring ideas have relevance to everyone. Kavita Shukla was just a middle schooler when she realized that extending the life of food could change the lives of millions. Now, at 29, her invention, FreshPaper is revolutionizing food storage and freshness in 35 countries and recently launched in grocery stores in the United States.
High school is tough enough. But wearing the same hand-me-downs day after day makes it even tougher. Allyson Ahlstrom was only 14 when she realized that teenagers in the foster care system and extreme poverty shared her love of fashion and desire to succeed, but couldn't dress to express themselves. So she founded Threads for Teens, a free boutique serving thousands of at-risk girls.
Jessica Matthews believes the greatest innovators are kids at heart. So her invention, the SOCCKET, is as simple as it is brilliant: a soccer ball that harnesses the kinetic energy of play to create electrical energy. For kids in developing countries, it's a way to light their homes, keep food fresh and water clean, just by playing outside with their friends.
