For 20 years, The Powerpuff Girls have been on a mission to prove that girls rule.
Now, Cartoon Network is launching #Empowerpuff in the Philippines, an initiative that hopes to make a difference in the life of every Pinay.
Through #Empowerpuff, the cable network will premiere a series of on-ground activities, local partnerships as well as online content to inspire Pinays to build their very own ‘ka-pow’ legacy and transform their communities. But before it officially kicks off, parents and other power figures can empower young ladies from their home or community with these easy steps:
Encourage them to express their creativity
Creativity is meant to be expressed because it is a gift that is ever evolving. If you know someone who has a talent in creating things or making beautiful drawings, encourage them to hone their craft.
Say no to bullying
Whether online or offline, bullying should not be tolerated. Lift each other up by saying good things that will help them become more driven and motivated.
Always be ready to help out
Blossom, Bubbles and Buttercup may have their differences and fights, but they’re always there for their sisters. Whether with a big or small gesture, support goes a long way when it comes to empowering others.
Spark up conversations
Another way to empower one another is to encourage conversation. Let your gal-pals know that they are remembered by perking up your group chats. In fact, you can send them #Empowerpuff-themed Viber stickers starting September 19.
Ride on to adventure
To empower others, you need to believe in yourself too. By stepping out of your comfort zone, going on adventures and meeting other people, you gain experiences that can make an impact on others. Visit different places and take advantage of every opportunity.
Teach each other
Sharing is caring and it doesn’t only apply to material things like your baon. Talent, skills and knowledge are also valuable things that you can share and teach others. You never know; they might be encouraged to pay it forward.
Mingle with others
Empowered women never limit themselves. They go out of their comfort zone and mingle with others with whom they share the same passion. Events like It’s A Girl Thing (IAGT) are designed to empower girls and celebrate uniqueness. And, as Cartoon Network partners with IAGT on November 10, girls like will surely have fun as they meet their fave women who wowed the world!
In addition to international personalities like the Merrel twins, there will also be guest appearances from local celebrity trailblazers like Anne Curtis, Yassi Pressman, Karylle, Jessy Mendiola and Megan Young.
