May 04, 2023
Here at Casely, we like to celebrate the most deserving movements, which is why we give a shoutout to an incredible organization every month! For May, we're offering a well-deserved shoutout to Girl Well. We're obsessed with their work and sure you will be too. Let's tell you everything you need to know about this fantastic charity and how you can support them with Casely’s #EveryCaseCounts campaign!
Who Is Girl Well?
Girl Well is a non-profit organization aimed at supporting ‘under-sheltered’ teenage girls. They support young women experiencing homelessness, in foster care, migrant families, and many more.
They provide support by providing self-care packages and giving girls a space to practice self-love no matter their circumstances. It's a simple idea with phenomenal benefits, not only for mental health but for physical well-being too.
This idea originated from the founder, Kayli Joy Cooper. She started this movement to encourage young women to recognize the importance of maintaining their mental health. This is especially relevant during stress, which many girls are all too familiar with when they lack stable shelter.
The care packages that Girl Well provide help young girls value themselves in a way they may not have been able to in the past, all through some much-needed care, reflection, and a bit of pampering!
Why Is Self-Care so Important?
Under-sheltered girls often face distinct pressures and stress because of their living situation. Many are too busy focusing on their daily lives and physical well-being to pay attention to their mental health. However, failing to look after mental health can often worsen everything else in a domino effect. Taking the time out to practice self-care is a great way to improve a person’s overall health.
One of the best things about self-care is that it can take any form. The definition is to practice things that preserve or improve one’s mental health. These self-caring practices can include a multitude of things! From practicing some hobbies to pampering (face masks, long showers, etc.) or even something as simple as lighting a candle and reading a book. Whatever your self-care practice looks like, it's essential to do them consistently.
Girl Well recognizes how essential self-care is to the lives of so many, which is why they're committed to providing the opportunity to young girls all over the country.
Get Involved Today!
If you want to support Girl Well, you can donate to them directly via their website. Every donation is gratefully received and put directly towards providing under-sheltered girls with the self-care they deserve. If you can't donate at the moment, that's fine! You can still help by spreading the word through your social media or to the people you know. Either way, you'll be helping.
Also, if you buy a case from Casely and upload a pic of your purchase to Instagram with the hashtag #EveryCaseCounts, we’ll donate a portion of the proceeds to Girl Well. You can think of buying a case as self-care that helps another girl get the self-care she deserves.
