Yellow Scope, Co-Founded by Kelly McCollum and Marcie Colledge
After meeting Kelly and Marcie I remembered that I had played with my older brother’s spent chemistry kit (there was very little left by the time I got to it). It just never occurred to my younger self to ask my parents for my own kit. With their rigorous science kits for girls, Yellow Scope is making sure girls know that science is for them. Let’s get those girls rolling up their lab coat sleeves! (yes, they sell lab coats too)

GIFTS FOR TWEEN & TEEN GIRLS
Yellowberry, Founded by Megan Grassel
Megan created Yellowberry after taking her younger sister on her first bra shopping trip. Megan was shocked to find that the bras were totally innapropriate for a young tween/teenager. She was 17 and she set out to create cute, colorful and comfortable bras for girls, ones that would fit them and their bodies, not the body that they are “supposed” to have. This is a super aspirational brand and a great choice for a gift that’s functional and very fun.
Scout Seacell bra, Moonbeam ($44): All new, this is another thoughtfully designed Yellowberry bra made with a fabric called Seacell. Seacell is made from renewable resources and is exceptionally soft. Learn more about this fabric and you’ll understand why Megan selected it. Also pictured are awesome stocking stuffer ideas: Tweetberry Headband ($12) and Berry Sock ($12) with pompoms!
GIFTS FOR ALL AGES
Donations are a wonderful thing anytime of year, but they are especially perfect to do in someone’s honor for the holidays. Here are some causes near and dear to girlpreneurs’ hearts.
Vivienne Harr, started a global movement when she ran her lemonade stand for 365 days to raise $100,000 to help end child slavery. Her work continues on with her family’s bottled Make A Stand Lemon-Aid. The domestic organization she supports and you can too, is: GEMS (Girls Education and Mentoring Services) – a New York City based organization focused on fighting human trafficking.
Kayla Abramowitz, founded the non-profit Kayla Cares 4 Kids, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that collects educational and entertainment items and donates them to children’s hospitals nationwide. She uncovered this need during her own extensive hospital stays. Donations can be made to Kayla Cares 4 Kids.
Many girls I speak to and work with adore animals. The World Wildlife Fund has a great adopt a species program so that the special someone in your life can become educated, empathetic and receive a wonderful gift too (plush stuffed animal for example).
