Throw a Primary Election Giving Party to Help Increase Political Involvement.
Elections are important. Women being a part of elections are even more important. We’re over half of the world population, ladies, and for the last EIGHT elections men have turned up at the polls in bigger numbers than women. Not only are we way better than that, we’re also way more fun than that. So throw a party with your gal pals and put the fun back into having your voice heard. How can you do that? We’ve got all of the deets below…
Organization: Team Aina!
We’re the ones bringing this one to you, so now you get to learn a little more about us. We believe in the power of women, and we believe that the world really can be changed for the better. Pretty sure we can do it in a more fun, fab, and streamlined way. So that’s our goal – to give you that personal connection to world change, to give you super fun and fab ways to do it, and to give you ways to do it on your own terms, in your own time. The Giving Party is one of our favorite ways to make that happen.
- Step 1: Figure out when your state’s primary is being held.
- Step 2: Send out those invites. We think Evite is fab.
- Step 3: Plan your night. Either do everything on this post (LOVE BUZZFEED!) or go it alone. Figure out some fun drinks (we love these red and blue ones), find some political appetizers your girls will love (omg these look amazing), and get some games lined up (this is hilarious). In honor of women’s suffrage, you could even have it a flapper-themed party with some of these fun ideas.
- Step 4: Figure out a project to help out the next gen of voters. We love this one, making a tote bag for Syrian Refugee kiddos to carry their school supplies in. Plus, this one’s so easy a 2 year old could handle it, so even if your drinks are spiked you’ll still be squared away.
- Step 5: Get together with the ladies, grab some drinks (not you, DD!), drive to your polling place and VOTE! Then head back to the house for some fun, some ridiculous talk about ridiculous politicians, and some good work for others.
- Step 6: After Action Review. Figure out what you loved, what you hated, and what you’ll do diff next time. Then send out an evite for the general election, because female empowerment is addictive.
