CLOTHING THAT EMPOWERS WOMEN AND GIRLS
TO SUCCEED AND BE CONFIDENT!
LAS VEGAS, NV… July 8, 2008… Everyone wears t-shirts with messages, graphics and photos. Some artists make their own as a political statement, a work of art, an advertising billboard, something to make people laugh, a fashion statement, a rebellious or celebrity image and even just something comfortable to wear.
Carla Weiskopf, a Las Vegas mother with four children, wanted to buy t-shirts for her three year old daughter, Jordann, and she could not find any with appropriate positive and empowering messages for the young child.
“Too many shirts have cynical, sarcastic, commercial or undignified sexual and sexist references, even for young girls and teenagers,” she explained. Weiskopf was appalled, so she decided to design her own shirts from home and named her home business Jordanns Positive Apparel. “My hope is to raise all my children to be couragous and confident, yet kind and gracious. Young girls and women should be admired for their intelligence, creativity, independence and positive attitude not only their physical qualities.
“Each morning I ask my children what type of man or woman are they going to be. Their answer is a man or woman of courage. I ask what does that mean. They say, a person of courage stands up for themselves and for others who cannot. A person of courage stands in the face of a challenge and does the right thing even when everyone else is doing the wrong thing. A woman of courage will do her best, believes she is a good person and values herself.
“I teach my children every day to make choices and decisions with the outcome they want. Some decisions in life are so amazing that they change lives forever. Making a decision is powerful and I teach them not to give their power to someone else. It is important for parents to constantly remind their children that who they are is wonderful, that they should be proud of who they are and to stand tall with self-respect. Children should always surround themselves with people who will lift them up when they are down, encourage them to believe and show them the same level of respect they have for themselves. They must also be gracious and acknowledge that they are blessed, ” she concluded.
Jordanns Positive Apparel t-shirts are designed to inspire women and girls to embrace their positive attributes, raise their self-esteem, and have the courage to stand up for themselves. Examples of messages on the tees include Courage, Faith and Hope and Pursue Your Dreams with Passion.
Weiskopf is donating a percentage of sales of the shirts to various charities including R.O.S.E. (Regaining One’s Self-Esteem) Fund, a national non-profit organization committed to ending violence against women and their children by assisting women survivors of violence to regain their self-esteem.
We fully support her mission and think her tees are fantastic for young girls and women alike. The shirts are beautifully made and high quality cotton. They are inexpensive, send a wonderful message to those around you and are well worth the money.
