The gift of giving | Mother's Day
Posted on 05 May 2015
This weekend is Mother's Day, and to celebrate the women of the world we will be donating 10% of all online sales over the week* to the charity 'Women for Women'. Along with treating your special mum, we wanted to together treat the women of the world who may not be as privileged as others.
'Women for Women' believe strong women build strong nations.
Since 1993, 'Women for Women International' has helped nearly 420,000 marginalized women in countries affected by war and conflict. They directly work with women in 8 countries offering support, tools, and access to life-changing skills to move from crisis and poverty to stability and economic self-sufficiency. 'Women for Women' bring women together in a safe space to learn life, business, and vocational skills. Once enrolled, each receives a monthly stipend – a vital support that enables her to participate. Women increase their ability to earn an income with new skills that are in-demand. They learn about their legal rights, and they become knowledgeable about health and nutrition. The result: stronger women, stronger families, and stronger communities.
This ripple effect is profound. As a bohemian brand supported by strong women and inspired by creativity, culture and art from around the world, we at White Bohemian have chosen 'Women for Women' as our preferred organisation to offer contribution and support. You can find out more about 'Women for Women' here. Why not get involved here, or #WfWI, or you could even sponsor a sister! * We will be donating 10% of online orders from 5\5\2015 to 10/5/2015.
