 COVID-19 Masks 

 

The Afshan Mask, Ayaz Mask, and Fazal Mask were each designed by Pakistani students. The designs emerged from a friendly competition held at our schools in Pakistan. The winners of this competition were three students: Afshan, Ayaz, and Fazal. During the time of COVID-19 Power to Pakistan wanted to give back to its community by helping to stop the spread of the virus, while continuing to fund scholarships to educate underserved youth in Pakistan. The designs were printed onto basic 100% combed cotton, which is made from ring-spun yarn and is much softer than conventional cotton. The masks were then handmade by Power to Pakistan club members.

During the time of COVID, Power to Pakistan engaged in a virtual 5k supporting Girl Up, a United Nations initiative to improve girls' health and safety around the world. Over 30 people participated in Power to Pakistan's team and we raised over $1,116. To participate in a virtual 5k, participants had the option of running for 30 minutes, biking for 15 minutes, walking for 45 minutes, or doing an online workout class for an hour. Some people sent in pictures of their watches to prove the distance they ran and other simply submitted a photo of them out biking, running, walking, or doing an online workout class. 

 

 #MyFreedomDay 

On March 11, #MyFreedomDay, a student-driven event created by CNN, was celebrated by the Aspen High School. My Freedom Day was made to raise awareness of modern-day slavery and human trafficking. Currently there are over 40 million victims of slavery, so to honor these people, a school assembly was carried out by club President, Macy Hopkinson, and showed a portion of the documentary, Girl Rising, to highlight the struggles that girls face worldwide. Students participate in this day by creating videos that answer the question "what does freedom mean to you?" These videos are posted on social media using the hashtag, My Freedom Day, and the best ones are posted on CNN.

The Popcycle was located outside of various locations on the walking mall such as O2, Maru, Starbucks, and Basalt Bike & Ski. It also catered at kids' birthday parties and more! This summer project was not only a fun way to fundraise money, but also helped to spread awareness of Power to Pakistan and its message.
