For just $8, you can commemorate this day with L’Occitane’s fund-raising, fair trade soap. The Women’s Day Soaps are produced in Burkina Faso as part of a development partnership with a local factory. The factory has been run entirely by women and supports their economic emancipation. This also smells really lovely! :)
* Gently formulated with L’Occitane’s signature ingredient; Shea Butter
* Adorned with an engraved motif which translates to “education”
* 100% of the proceeds will help to build literacy centers for women in Burkina Faso , Africa
* Since 2006 over 1,900 women have learned to read and write and over 5,000 women have been able to develop or enhance these skills
Causes like this are very near and dear to me. I love being involved in efforts that seek to address a real problem and empower women. This type of program seeks long term change which begins with education. I have also been part of Bead for Life fundraisers. This is an organization that helps women in Uganda. They hand roll beads from paper into gorgeous jewelry. These are the epitome of one of a kind items. Bead for Life seeks to empower women through education and job training and is a wonderful organization I hope you check out. These also make a wonderful gift since they come from the heart.
Host a Bead for Life Party!
