Here at Sassy HQ we’re all about empowering our fellow fearless females, especially from a young age. It’s super important to encourage our daughters, nieces, friends and family to challenge themselves, to push beyond their comfort zones and go through life like total #girlbosses. Which is why, we’re delighted to share a fantastic crowdfunding campaign called Fearless Frosty, created by Singapore-based organization SisuGirls. Let’s hear it for the ladies!
SisuGirls encourages girls to have some grit (which happens to be the literal translation of Finnish term Sisu), take risks, follow their hearts and have the confidence to try and try again even if they get knocked down. Sometimes the fear of failure holds us back from achieving our dream goals, but instead we should take that fear and empower ourselves. This inspiring global movement organises adventure-based programmes and inspiring content to show girls how determined they are capable of being. It’s a safe, girls-only environment that’s both online and in-person for girls aged five and up to develop their passions and interests, gain confidence and make friends. From running clubs and rock-climbing sessions to skateboarding programmes and more, SisuGirls are providing girls with a safe environment to challenge themselves and they’re taking on a new challenge with their new Fearless Frosty campaign.
Fearless Frosty follows professional Kiwi mountain runner Anna Frost who dreams of making a career in sports. Surrounded by naysayers, Anna aims to prove them wrong by embarking on journey of training and hard-work towards her dream of running mountain trails for a living. Suitable for kids aged three and up, this series of books will give kids healthy female role models while teaching them to live with determination and never be afraid of pursuing their own life paths.
