We’re shifting the stigma of power & redefining it as universal good. Power does not equate to dictation or abuse. Power translates to influence, impact and inspiration. And when power is placed in the right hands, only good can transpire. So here is to the powerful: the engaging and experienced pioneers who lead by example.
When choosing what charity our Power Locket would collaborate with, it only made sense to give our proceeds to She Should Run: The nonpartisan, nonprofit organization that promotes leadership and encourages women from all walks of life to run for office. She Should Run provides an approachable starting place and network for women leaders considering a future run by providing community, resources and growth opportunities. After all, it’s not that women don’t win; it’s that they don’t run.
A Token Of, an all-female designed and operated jewelry collection with charitable benefits, believes that our Power Locket aligns precisely with She Should Run’s efforts. Women are equally persuasive, potent and powerful as men and deserve an opportunity to run for office. She Should Run presents the perfect launching-pad and network for women of all political leanings, ethnicities and backgrounds.
Think about it: There are over 500,000 elected offices and less than 1/3 are held by women. It’s time we widen the gender gap and bring light to this under-represented democracy. The hard part is that women are not encouraged and recruited at the same rate as men. Both A Token Of and She Should Run has a vision to change that. We are here to uplift and empower these women leaders that fear walking the journey to office alone. You are never alone.
She Should Run has prepared 21,000+ women to run which is why A Token Of strongly represents our partnership with them. With our charitable contributions (compliments to your purchase) we are driven by our dream of seeing 250,000 women run for office by 2030.
Putting power in the proper hands is vital for here and now as well as the generations to come. She Should Run is more than simply a jumpstart for current women running, but a supportive philanthropy that boosts young girls ambitions to lead via tools and activities for family members who want to reassure their daughters.
To our children (and our children’s children): You can do anything! You are equally as intellectual, motivational and powerful as anyone else; never let anyone convince you otherwise. Your voice is mighty and you surely will make a difference to your community.
A Token Of embodies a gentle reminder of your cherished memories while simultaneously supporting the moments that lie ahead.
So here is to the powerful. The strong-willed; both physically and emotionally. The influential with convincing potential.
Do you know any women who are considering running for office but need a supportive platform in doing so? She Should Run is here. Are you also curious about our modern lockets that represent virtues (like Power)? We are sure one of our necklaces and bracelets will speak to you.
