The entrepreneurs behind Activyst are on a mission to help more girls play sports. They make super functional and bold athletic bags and donate a portion of their profits to support girls’ sports programs around the world.
Why girls sports? Studies show that girls who play sports are less likely to get sick, get pregnant in adolescence, or stay in abusive relationships. They are happier and more educated, successful, and confident. And when girls thrive, so do their communities. Yet, in many parts of the world girls don’t have opportunities to be active and play sports. Activyst wants to change this. For each bag sold Activyst donates 10% of their profits to non-profit partners that provide sports opportunities for girls around the world.
Activyst is giving away their signature Active Bag to two lucky winners. This is the ultimate workout bag with special compartments for your yoga mat, shoes, clothes and personal items. It comes in two color options – coral or turquoise – and is made of “macen”, a colorful fabric the company’s founder discovered in Nicaragua. Bags from this giveaway will help fund a girls’ soccer coach for Soccer Without Borders US program in Oakland.
