Girl Power Sport GIVEAWAY!

The power to play. The power to change. The power to thrive.
Psst! There is a giveaway at the end!!

Today I am SO excited to share one of our most favorite gymnastics companies!! It’s called Girl Power Sport , its local to us {in Washington State}. I am confident once I introduce you to them you will love them as much as we do!

ggps2

ggps4We first became acquainted with them after Gabbi last year and immediately fell in love with their company and mission! Not only do they have the cutest leotards check out how cute this USA Swing Top and #GIRLPOWER capris leggings are! Oh SWOON over this team USA red star jacket!! This outfit will be absolute perfection on the 4th of July!ggps3

Fun Fact: Girl Power Sport is made in the USA and proceeds from every sale goes to charity!

Girl Power Sport also specializes in beautiful and unique fabrics that you don’t see with other companies!

One such fabric is the ridiculously adorable Gym Cat Leotard! Gabbi loves cats so of course it has become one of her favorite leotards and the fact that one cat is doing a back handspring it the CUTEST!

Not only is this leotard the cutest darn thing I’ve ever seen, it’s so incredibly well made! Quality is the most important thing when I buy my daughter leotards, honesty too often we buy Gabbi leotards and they fit great in the torso but are so darn baggy everywhere else that they just look ridiculous! Girl Power Sport has done a fantastic job on their leotard cut!

Generally Gabbi is not a fan of leotards with more one fabric…she hates the seams, but this Girl Power Sport leotard is different! The seam between the kitty fabric and the pink fabric on the sides is very soft and she doesn’t even notice it! Also the pink fabric is shiny, often times that means that the inside of the fabric is rough, this fabric is not!

Guys we are absolutely loving this leotard and cannot wait to get her more, in fact…

There are so many GP SPORT lovelies on Gabbi’s wishlist:

GP SPORT Stella Space Cat Leotard, Main, color, BLUE

A bit about Girl Power Sport:

Girl Power Begins!  As a mompreneur, I wanted to create a company that encourages girls to be strong, active and goal driven.  I was born with a heart defect that limited my activity level.  After a number of heart surgeries, I set a goal to have an active lifestyle. So far, I have beat the odds and have run 21 marathons and 1 50k.  I want my children to learn the importance of hard work and perseverance on the field as an athlete as well as all aspects of their lives. I have used coaching as a way to encourage and impart the things I have learned that ultimately, you can overcome the odds. Through dance, gymnastics and sports, girls learn to be assertive, work as a team and test their abilities and strength. In the words of Shalane Flanagan, “Keep your head up, keep your heart strong,” I want girls who wear my products to feel pride, feel assertive, feel the sense of team and above all, feel they can beat the odds while maintaining a sense of kindness for others.

We are thrilled to be collaborating with Girl Power Sport to giveaway a Gym Cat leotard to one lucky winner!

ggps

We are going to do this giveaway old school!! Entering is easy!

Yep it’s that easy!

This giveaway will run until March 20th and I will select a winner using random.org

I want to extend a HUGE Thank You to Lisa at Girl Power Sport for the adorable leotard!

*Although GPS did send a leotard for partnering with them I was not compensated or persuaded to write anything I do not mean-  All thoughts + opinions are 100% my own.

Heart Month Fundraiser from Lizatards

Remember earlier this month when I shared the awesome fundraiser my friends over at Lizatards are having? In case you missed it I wanted to share it once more before February comes to an end!

February is Heart Health/ Heart Disease Month and chances are we have all been effected by it in one way or another.  It’s horrible to watch someone suffer especially a child.

IMG_6822We are blessed and so thankful that our children have not had to spend countless days, months or even years in the hospital, but that is not the case for some of our friends. Two families we know both have sons with extreme heart conditions and have spent most of their lives in the hospital, had countless appointments and surgeries, some good, some not so good. We’ve watched helplessly as their children suffer unable to do anything and SO thankful for the doctors and nurses to are helping.

As I’ve mentioned in previous posts Lizatards is not only our fave but they are always giving back! This month in honor of Heart Health they are doing an amazing fundraiser the proceeds will go to the Children’s Heart Institute. When I heard about this Fundraiser I wanted to share it with the world…so that’s what I’m doing!

Right now you can get this amazing long sleeve burnout {thin yet cozy fabric} for $10 with the proceeds going to families who need it! The Heart with Wings shirt comes in three great colors

Lizatards Heart with Wings Thermal Long Sleeve- Donation

This isn’t just a cute shirt, there is actually a very emotional story behind this sweet design. This heart with wings was drawn by Brittany a sweet 14 year old girl who died from a heart condition.

Please help these families by the supporting this amazing cause and the Children’s Heart Institute.

February is Heart Health / Heart Disease Awareness Month. Let be honest here chances are you are someone who has been effected by heart disease or you know someone who has. It’s horrible to watch someone suffer especially a child.

Unicorn Leotard (in Lilac) This leotard is life to Gabbi…unicorns, rainbows, hearts AND it purple! What?! It’s like all her favorite things rolled into one! Again, this will definitely be worn with shorts in the summer! This beautiful leotard is also available two other colors: mint and black! We definitely plan to get Gabbi them!

Once again Lizatards didn’t disappoint…in fact they hit it out of the park with these leotards!

Shopping and Making an Impact!

I have mentioned so many times about our love for  Lizatards! We not only love the quality and selection of their leotards but who they are! You may remember the California Fundraiser leotards from the end of last year, the proceeds from those leotards went to the families that had been devastated by the horrible fires!! How amazing right?!? Lizatards does more than that…

Everyone who shops at  Lizatards is helping them donate to the Children’s Heart Institute, and a local YMCA Gymnastics Center to benefit the gymnastics programs, averaging $2500-$4000 a year!!!

Lizatards also supports different non-profit organizations.

Fun fact! When you buy a Medal Hangers you are actually helping benefit Rise Up Industries, which is a non-profit organization that provides: job training, counseling and programs to formerly gang involved individuals and at-risk individuals! How awesome is that!

Lizatards 'Gymnast' Medal Rack Hanger- Black, Blue, Purple or Pink

If you been wanting to get your gymnast a Medal Hanger please consider getting one from Lizatards!!

You can read more about Rise Up Industries HERE

Over the last year and a half our daughter Gabbi has been an ambassador for this amazing company! We love the leotards, the people, the friends we’ve made and of course the giving back! Big News!! Lizatards will be announcing new 2019 Lizatards Ambassadors in the next few months. If your gymnast is social, loves posting and likes free leos you might be right! Lizatards will be picking our Ambassadors at the beginning of February, so head over to https://www.lizatards.com/pages/lizatards-brand-ambassador

Lizatards Fundraiser Leotard {Califorina Fires}

Update 12/28: These gorgeous leotards are no long available, THANK YOU to everyone who purchased one or both! Lizatards was able to give a VERY wonderful gift! ❤

gabw1Without a doubt you have heard about the devastating fires in California. We spent  Thanksgiving in California {driving from WA state} Seeing the devastation first hand was truly like nothing I’ve ever seen before. My husband and I cried driving through towns that were basically non existent…so many people lost everything. It was overwhelming and gut wrenching. Our Hotel was to capacity, not because people were visiting for Thanksgiving but refuge from the fires. Some of the families had cars full of frame photos and rubbermaids full of their cherished belongings. As I said it was overwhelming.

 

When we arrived home and discovered that Lizatards was doing a fundraiser I couldn’t have been more thrilled!

Head over to Lizatards right now and purchase one or both of these gorgeous leotards for $10!

gabw2

The proceeds go to support the fire victims! The leos are listed as “California Fire Holiday Leotard” These leotards will be $10 until they are gone!
