Do you remember Jen for Epbot? I interviewed her a while back and if you didn't know, she's awesome. Well I realized that I hadn't been by her blog lately and jumped over there this evening and saw a really incredible story.
Apparently a little girl, Katie, had been getting picked on for carrying a Star Wars water bottle to school. The kids were teasing her that girls weren't supposed to like Star Wars. WHAT?!?!? I missed that memo.
Anyway, Katie's mom just so happens to be a blogger. She shared the story on her blog. The story was then sent to Epbot, where it went viral. Other blogs picked it up, too. It was all over Twitter and Facebook. And the news.
I absolutely LOVE this story. A Facebook event was started for December 10th as Wear Star Wars: Share Star Wars. The idea is to wear something Star Wars and then donate a Star Wars item to support Katie and girl geeks everywhere.
