For this project, Loopy Mango partnered withShe Should Run- a non-partisan 501(c)3 nonprofit committed to advancing women and girls in public leadership. Their mission is to get 250,000 women to run for elected office by the year 2030. Visitsheshouldrun.org to learn more about them and about how you can get involved. If you can - run for public office and make a difference!
Loopy Mango will donate 50% of the proceeds from this DIY kit to She Should Run.
We chose to partner with She Should Run because their method of empowering women to run for public office is effective and approachable. We believe that women must have equal representation in the government, which we do not currently have. If more women consider and attempt running for office, that brings us closer to equal representation in the government.
When designing The Aviatrix, our designer Oejong Kim was inspired by flight helmets worn by female aviators in the 1920s and '30s. These brave women overcame tremendous gender-based obstacles to pursue their dreams of taking to the air. Their pioneering work helped to shift the world's understanding of what women are capable of and continue to inspire millions to this day.
Even if you've never knit before, we have a full video tutorial that shows you the process from start to finish!
