Happy News, Giving Back + International Women's Day!
In Honour of International Women's Day:
We're happy to announce our partnership to support the Women's Health Collective, a non-profit women's organization servicing our community since 1971. They provide free medical services, counselling, professional guidance, yoga, pilates and acupuncture to any women regardless of age, race, culture, religion, sexual identity or sexual orientation.
We're donating 10% of all sales taking place on Monday, March 6th and Tuesday, March 7th to the WHC, and, we're happy to announce other shops like Radical Buttons and El Kartel are also joining our efforts and donating part of their proceeds too!
But, International Women's Day
Is Not Till March 8th...
You're correct! The reason we are doing this two days early, is because on March 8th we're joining #DayWithoutAWoman, the International Women's Strike organized by the Women's March on Washington.
Anyone, anywhere, can join by making March 8th A Day Without a Woman, in one or all of the following ways:
Women take the day off, from paid and unpaid labor
Avoid shopping for one day (with exceptions for small, women- and minority-owned businesses)
Wear RED in solidarity with A Day Without A Woman
Fight the Patriarchy with Self Love
Whether or not you participate in the A Day Without A Woman, there's something you can do today to fight for equality, and it starts with loving yourself!
Did you know 97% of grown women are unhappy with their bodies, and 73% think about their size or shape every single day?
I encourage you to gather your friends (male and female) and children, and watch the documentary Embrace - once you are done, pass it forward and encourage others to watch it!
Loving our bodies is not only a kind act, it is a powerful step towards becoming empowered female leaders. Can you imagine the things we could do -individually, and collectively- if we were comfortable in our own skin?
One Last Thought/ Words to Live by:
“My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style”
― Maya Angelou
Thank you for being a part of our community and for shopping small.
We appreciate you and everything you do!
