Have you seen Mr Rabbit? An appeal to find a little girl's lost stuffed bunny had legions of people trying to track down the doll in London's main shopping drag, Oxford Street.
According to an article in the Evening Standard, more than 1,000 tweeted the appeal, more than 2,000 shared it on Facebook, and as many as 134,000 people viewing the image of a tattered Mr Rabbit.
When three-year-old Ruby lost her beloved bunny on a family trip to London—and then proceeded to cry herself to sleep—her mother was compelled to take action.
Are you tired of pink toy aisles? Would you like to expand the world's narrow expectations for its daughters? Debbie Sterling sure would. That's why the Stanford alumnus and CEO of GoldieBlox is determined to get girls thinking outside of the box, inventing and building with an awesome array of toys.
Too few girls are encouraged to pursue careers in the fields of science, technology, engineering and math, while others are actively discouraged at a young age from picking up "boy toys."
The result? According to an article in Upworthy, a dearth of women (fewer than three in ten) graduate in the aforementioned subjects. And women like Sterling are a rare breed, indeed: with just one in ten growing up to become engineers. Witness how Lego tried (and failed miserably) to get girls into building.
That was a crying shame. But GoldieBlox hopes to change the sad stats, starting with this genius little clip right here.
If you like what they have to say, by all means mosey on over to their Facebook page and share the love.
