To children - small children in particular - most of daily life is full of little mysteries. We can encourage a curious mindset by acting like a mystery writer.

Through sport, we learn how to collaborate, how to compete, and how to make progress over time through consistent effort. Sport has the added benefit of teaching girls to respect and value their bodies. Through sport, girls learn they can be strong and that strength is a good thing.

We can show them that they can choose how to react to the problems they face by taking action or by letting it go.

From Necessitees.co Founder Karina Dixon: "I wanted to start a business that would give a percentage of every sale back to helping end diaper need. I was already working full-time, volunteering with other organizations and focused on life with my husband, Sean, and Eliot. But the idea of starting a business of my own that would give back just wouldn’t go away. I had a background in operations and HR, and Sean’s technical and marketing expertise made him the perfect partner to help me get things off the ground."
