Julee from the blog Mommy Memorandum, writes a beautiful post about the TIA Girl Club and takes us a trip into what Derek’s TIA boxes include. Derek’s is December’s Trailblazer of TIA Girl Club, as we posted few days ago.
Thank you SO much Julee for this amazing post! Be sure to visit it to see the pictures she shared from the boxes and their content. And also thanks HappyHough for bringing this to our attention :*
Known for Dancing with the Stars and now starring in Broadway’s Hairspray, December’s TIA Trailblazer is Derek Hough! Bullied as a child, Derek passionately understands the mission of TIA “Today I Am” Boxes. He has also created a first-ever, limited edition box for boys! What I love about the Derek Hough Tia Boxes is that they start with an empowering quote.
From the girls’ box…
“MARCH TO YOUR OWN BEAT! FIGURE OUT YOUR PASSION AND EVERYTHING ELSE WILL FALL INTO PLACE.” – DEREK HOUGH
The box includes:
- Express Yourself Activity – Use erasable marker to write a positive message on your mirror daily and say the message to yourself out loud! (use cloth to erase). May we suggest your first message be “TODAY I AM TAKING THE LEAD!”
- TIA Bracelet – Wear this as a reminder that you, TIA Girl, believe what you tell yourself! So, say what you want to see in your life. Only you can take the lead and create the life you want!
- TIA Trailblazer Card – It’s here you’ll read Derek’s bio and his answers to our TIA 7Q (seven questions crowdsourced from the TIA GIRLS themselves). Oh, and there’s also a super awesome photo of Derek (with his autograph!).
- TIA Inspiration Card – Derek is super encouraging and inspirational! So, display Derek’s Inspiration Card (using your stand from the TIA Welcome Kit!) and be just that: Inspired by Derek!
- TIA Poster – This is one poster you are going to want to pin to your wall. Or locker. Or bathroom mirror. Not only does Derek write you a personal letter, but he also shares five fun and interesting things you may not know about him.
- TIA Treasures – We want you to feel connected to Derek, he’s a TIA Trailblazer now! So we’ve included some fun items that will hopefully do just that: sleeping mask; beanie hat; headbands; stuffed animal Bulldog (just like Derek’s dog, Romeo!).
From the boys’ box…
“YOU HAVE THE POWER TO CREATE, THE POWER TO SEE SOMETHING IN YOUR MIND AND MAKE IT REAL.” – DEREK HOUGH
The box includes:
- TIA Energy Experiment – Your thoughts have power (energy!). We want you to learn that what you think can make stuff happen. Like moving wire hangers!
- TIA Handbook for Boys – TIA = Today I am! In the handbook, you’ll discover what Derek knows about using words and your inner power to live your best life!
- Poster – Everyone needs the motivation to inspire them daily. Hang this poster in your bedroom and use Derek’s Rule’s for Life to remind yourself what you need to do to be the best you can be!
- The Fun Stuff! – Having fun is a part of living your best life. What’s not fun about finding some cool stuff in your box? We’ve packed this box full of awesome items for you to enjoy, all hand-picked by Derek!: Foldable Water Bottle; Drawstring backpack; Smart Gloves (wearable while using touch screen devices!); Beanie hat; Bracelet.
