If you wear women’s clothing, you know that clothes with functional pockets are extremely hard to come by. The same can be said for girls’ clothing.
It’s an annoying fact of life that many, including 7-year-old Kamryn Gardner, are tired of. So, the first grader used what she learned in school and wrote a letter to Old Navy explaining her issue.
To everyone’s shock, Old Navy replied!
Bentonville Schools, where Kamryn is a first grader at Evening Star Elementary, shared how the first grader wrote a persuasive letter to Old Navy to express her displeasure in the lack of pockets on their girls’ jeans.
“I do not like that pockets of the girl’s jeans are fake,” she wrote. “I want front pockets because I want to put my hands in them. I also would like to put things in them.”
She followed it up with a request. Kamryn wanted Old Navy to make jeans with real pockets.
And to everyone’s surprise, they listened!
Not only did the first grader receive a response back from Old Navy, but she received four pairs of jeans with legitimate pockets!
Way to go Kamryn! This just goes to show how important it is to speak up. You never know who is listening, and you just might help bring about some change.
