Pilot Pens USA is Giving Away Some Cool Stuff with G2 Overachievers

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. I am being paid to attend an event where I can learn all about the Pilot Pen USA G2 brand and about the G2 Overachievers initiative. All opinions are my own.


Update: Since this event, I have added in photos from the event that I hope you will enjoy.

Something many of you may not know about me is that I am an avid crafter. Learning calligraphy is something I’ve always wanted to do but never had the time for. I love making things with my hands. And I’ve put together some pretty cool stuff over the years, but I’ve never been good at calligraphy. If you know me personally then you’ll understand how much it bothers me to not master something. I guess that’s why I’m an overachiever! So, when Pilot Pens USA asked me to meet up with them in Atlanta for the G2 Overachievers Blogger Event, I was pretty excited! I mean, it’s not every day I get to attend a meet up with some of my friends over wine and learn something new.

My son even got in on the fun!


Learning calligraphy for me is special. I feel like in this day and age we just don’t write things down enough. Having this talent under my belt is going to make holiday cards and letters much more special (when I do get the time to write them).


So what will I be doing with Pilot Pens USA? And what is G2 Overachievers?

What is the G2 Overachievers Grant?


G2 Overachievers celebrates well, overachievers! The people who go above and beyond to accept challenges. From this, the G2 Overachievers Grant was formed with Pilot Pens USA and Shonda Rhimes which awarded $50,000 to winner and overachiever Dr. Rebecca Constantino, founder of Access Books in Los Angelas in 2016.

They are currently taking 2017 applicants at for the next generation of G2 Overachievers and soon Pilot Pens USA will be offering a $15,000 Student Grant! I love when bigger brands contribute to those who put in the effort.

About G2 Pilot Pens USA


G2 seems to be everyone’s favorite pens. And I totally get it. They write like a dream. You can do almost anything with them like grade papers, draw, color, and make beautiful calligraphy. It’s America’s #1 selling pen for good reason. When I used to be a server in a restaurant, that was the only pen I would buy. And I would go bananas anytime a customer stole it from me! They are just the best! Fun colors, different sizes, and long-lasting quality have made them my go-to brand for years.


I’m looking forward to the G2 Overachievers Meet Up. I can’t wait to learn more about calligraphy and see if any of my readers win some cool stuff! Good luck if you’re in the winning! And remember, it’s never too late to be an overachiever.

  1. That’s lots of great prizes to be won! And how cool would it be to get awarded that grant, for being awesome at what you’re doing.

  2. How wonderful that you were able to work on your calligraphy skills and be able to attend an event where you could have fun and learn at the same time! I think it is amazing that they are offering grants as initiatives as well!

  3. I have a friend who loves calligraphy and her handwriting is the most beautiful of anyone I’ve ever met. She’s also very paticular about the kinds of pens she uses. We all have our favorites (mine is the Bic blue). How wonderful of Pilot Pens Pilot Pens to offer such a genrous grant. When I know companies give back, I’m far more likely to use their products. x

  4. Calligraphy is so very beautiful. It’s definitely an art form. I have purchased sets in the past, but never took the time to actually learn. I think it would be fun and something stylish I could do with my webpage if I could ever learn how to do it.

  5. Calligraphy is such an art. I’ve tried my hand at writing Arabic calligraphy and although hard at first, you become really proud at your skills. the event sounds wonderful

  6. What an honor for you to be able to attend such an awesome event!! Congrats! Pilot Pens is doing a great thing with their recognition as well as those amazing giveaways! I may just have to go enter. Thank you
