So, let's dive into the enchanting story behind their encounter, the magic of representation, and the overwhelming response that followed!
Picture this: It was just an ordinary day when I (by the way, I'm Ollie, one of the Co-Founders of Badgie!) spotted Georgie, a nurse taking a well-deserved lunch break. Seeing an opportunity to spread some joy, I approached her with a Badgie Pride Flag for her name badge. Little did she know, this seemingly small gesture would create an unforgettable moment that resonated with people all over the world.

We're talking about a whopping 5 million views and counting! It's safe to say that Georgie struck a chord with viewers everywhere.
