California teen launches nonprofit to ensure girls practice self-care
Kayli Joy Cooper thinks everyone should be able to practice self-care, and is doing her part to make sure girls have the tools they need to do so. During the pandemic, Cooper wanted to help people struggling with mental health, so she created 60 bags to get girls started on their own journeys. She donated several kits to girls in foster care, who inspired her to continue this further. Now, she has a nonprofit, Girl Well, where Cooper partners with schools and foster homes in five states to distribute self-care kits. She now works with several brands to keep the bags filled, and has made it her goal to have a presence in all 50 states so any girl who wants a kit can have one.
