Owlette/BRO Force For Good Charm Winner

We received so many incredible submissions and ideas for potential Force For Good® Charms! We revealed the chosen, beautiful Charm at The O2 Experience and recognized Ethan Pierce for designing a “Mended Heart” Charm, which is a reminder to people that they can heal after a tragedy in their life. Ethan was inspired to sketch this Charm because he and his family witnessed the Las Vegas shooting tragedy. See Ethan’s beautiful sketch here.

One-hundred percent of the profits of the “Mended Heart” Force For God Charm goes to Our Military Kids, an organization that supports children (ages 5-12th grade) of deployed National Guard and Reserve service members, as well as those of wounded veterans from all service branches, with grants that provide up to $300 for a chosen sport, art or other activity. Participation in these activities helps military children cope with stress and build self-confidence while their parents are recovering or serving overseas.

2019-2020 Owlette Achievement Program

August 1, 2019 – April 30, 2020

The Owlette Program is committed to living out the pillars of the Origami Owl mission: to be a Force For Good®; to love, inspire and motivate people of all ages to reach their dreams and empower them to make a difference in the lives of others. The four pillars that form the foundation of the Owlette experience are: sales, sponsoring, personal development and being a Force For Good. This new achievement program is kind of like the Girl Scouts program; it starts the moment someone becomes an Owlette, and they will then have the opportunity to earn Charms throughout every year they are in the Owlette Program. We will be adding new Charms to achieve each year. The first Charm they get is their Owlette Charm and the final Charm will be their Graduation Cap. For each pillar of the business and mission that’s achieved during the year, Owlettes will earn an exclusive piece of jewelry to include in a special look.

Please note, these recognition items will be awarded every year on stage at The O2 Experience. Those who are unable to attend will receive the items in the mail following the event.

Here’s a printable flyer you can share with your teams.

The 2019 O2 Experience: Spotlight on Hoot Camp

The 2019 O2 Experience: Spotlight on Hoot Camp

We’re committed to helping our Owlettes and BROs succeed and that means providing them with their own, specialized training at our biggest event of the year, The O2 Experience!

On Saturday, July 27, Origami Owl Brand Ambassador Yvette Dickson-Torres hosted Hoot Camp to support our youngest entrepreneurs with special guests Origami Owl® Co-Founders Bella Weems-Lambert, Tyson Basha and Shawn Maxwell, who spent some time hanging out with our 11- to 17-year-olds.

These dynamic young people also received peer training from our Youth Council members and learned all about their unique strengths from Gallup Executive Coach Jeremy Pietrocini. The tools they learned at Hoot Camp were designed to set them up for success over the next year and the feedback was tremendous!

Hoot Camp attendees were also the very first to receive the Owlette “Mended Heart” Force For Good® Charm that was designed by their peer, BRO Ethan Piece.

Here’s what some of the Owlettes and BROs had to say about their Hoot Camp experience:

Hadley Golden, 11 years old, Director

“I love being part of the Origami Owl family! It’s like being a part of your favorite summer camp all the time because there is no judgment, people’s feelings about you aren’t based on how much you sell and everyone is genuinely welcoming. Hoot Camp is something I look forward to all year because the connection is instant. You trust that everyone is a Force For Good and welcoming. You get to interact with all of these amazing people from all over the country and feel part of a true family. It’s like getting to see cousins you just haven’t met yet and reuniting with others like you would at summer camp.”

 

 

 

 

Selina Novello, 17 years old, Team Leader

“Hoot Camp was a great way to meet other Owlettes and BROs. My favorite part was the session with Jeremy Pietrocini where I got to learn about my strengths and how to apply them to my business. Having the opportunity to speak on balance and perseverance to everyone at Hoot Camp was an amazing experience. After Convention, we were all empowered to be ‘Limitless.’ All you have to do is set your mind to it!”

 

 

 

 

Wellington Emanuel, 15 years old, Team Manager

“My experience at Hoot Camp was amazing and really fun. I enjoyed meeting all the Founders, and becoming new friends with fellow Owlettes and BROs. My favorite quote from Chrissy during Convention was, ‘I am limitless.’ I believe I can take my O2 business and be a success. I’m looking forward to being a Force For Good and growing my business.”

 

 

 

 

 

Ethan Pierce, 14 years old, Senior Designer

“The whole Convention was fun! I loved that, at Hoot Camp, I was able to meet Bella in an informal setting where we could ask her questions and really interact with her. I also appreciated hearing from the Youth Council. All of this made it more real knowing that other people have been successful in their businesses at our age.”

 

 

 

 

 

Sean Pierce, 13 years old, Senior Designer

“I enjoyed the whole Convention experience! It’s hard to pick a favorite part of Hoot Camp because it was all fun and educational, but I particularly liked hearing from the Youth Council and learning from their experiences. Oh, and I was happy to meet Bella! Hoot Camp really helped me hear from others who have gone through this journey, too. It was fun to meet everyone!”

 

 

 

 

 

 

April Halverson, 17 years old, Senior Team Leader

“My favorite part of Hoot Camp was spending time with Bella and Yvette.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Brianna Standen, 17 years old, Executive Team Leader

“Hoot Camp gave me the opportunity to meet other Owlettes and make lifelong friends. It was great to hear their stories about why they joined Origami Owl. I’m blessed to be a part of something so meaningful!”

Owlette/BRO Force For Good Charm Winner

We received so many incredible submissions and ideas for potential Force For Good® Charms! We revealed the chosen, beautiful Charm at The O2 Experience and recognized Ethan Pierce for designing a “Mended Heart” Charm, which is a reminder to people that they can heal after a tragedy in their life.

TWO Owlette Education Award Recipients

We want to support our Owlettes and BROs whose goals are to continue their education at a university or technical school once they graduate from high school. On stage at The 2019 O2 Experience, we presented MeKendra Sloan and Quentin Kurtz a $2,000 check to help cover their continuing education costs.

Congratulations to MeKendra and Quentin!

Here’s a little about why this Owlette and BRO were chosen!

MeKendra Sloan

“Before joining Origami Owl, MeKendra’s confidence was at an all-time low. She was bullied and experienced social anxiety. But, through the Owlette Program, MeKendra has blossomed and proclaims, ‘the support and positivity that comes from the Owlette Program is amazing!’

One of the greatest things about becoming an Owlette, says MeKendra, is ‘being a Force For Good.’ During the past year, she has created and gifted several Lockets to kids with cancer. She loves to gift the Charm she designed, which was selected for the Owlette Force For Good Charm at last year’s Convention, as well as pieces from the Empowerment Collection to remind others ‘that they matter.’ MeKendra truly believes, ‘No one deserves to feel hopeless and alone.’

MeKendra strives to ‘Empower {people} to make a difference in the lives of others,’ and to lead by example.

Even though MeKendra’s family has experienced financial setbacks this year, it hasn’t stopped her from working toward the goal of becoming a pediatric neo-natal nurse. MeKendra has already started to pursue her post-secondary education and is determined to finance it on her own.

We think her desire to help others shines through, and she is truly deserving of a little ‘hand up,’ and that is why we are delighted to award one of this year’s Owlette Education Awards to MeKendra Sloan!”

Quentin Kurtz

“Quentin’s ‘why’ for joining Origami Owl almost seven years ago was to raise $3,200 to pay for a trip to the National Scouting Jamboree. He realized that goal quickly… and still considers it an honor to help Customers tell their stories by sharing their memories of triumphs and struggles in their own Living Lockets®.

In the fall of 2013, Quentin, his mom, and a small group of other direct sales vendors, created an event in Northern Colorado to raise money for small charities in the area. They called their event the Quarter Auction. They are now in their sixth year of charitable fund raising and have raised $62,000 so far – in quarters!

Service to his community has always been a part of Quentin’s family life – not only with Origami Owl, but also with scouting. During the winter of 2017, he embarked on a Boy Scout Eagle Project to construct a pergola for a local church’s memory garden. ‘The skills I developed with Origami Owl,’ says Quentin, ‘helped me direct my team of youth and adult helpers to achieve this.’

Quentin’s next big goal is to pursue his passion in Theater Stage Management. For the past two years, he has been a part of Fort Collins High School Tower Theater Group, and he wants to study this at Ohio University in the fall.

We believe Quentin’s selfless ‘Force For Good’ deeds are deserving of recognition and some pay-back educational funding. As such, we are extremely pleased to do so by selecting him as one of this year’s Owlette Education Award recipients!”

Congratulations to our 2019 Youth Council Members

The Youth Council gives Owlettes and BROs the opportunity to serve their peers in the Owlette Program and provide a youthful perspective, which is important in developing a strong program. Youth Council members represent their fellow Owlettes and BROs while making a difference and gaining leadership skills.
