Our courageous co-founders, Julia Wills and Alex Kummerow, both come from a tradition of strong, outspoken, and self-starting ladies. From this intrepid strength, each of them has always drawn inspiration and determination, qualities instrumental in the creation of Herbivore Botanicals. So it is with great respect and gratitude that all of us here join forces with Women for Women International to celebrate Int’l Women’s Day.
We will be donating 30% of our sales to this dynamically empowering organization starting on Wednesday the 8th through Sunday the 12th. Since 1993, they have been serving and supporting marginalized women in conflict affected countries by providing access to financial tools and life-changing skills. Combined with health education, legal counsel, and community building resources these vocational skills help women to move from crisis and poverty to stability and economic self-sufficiency.
Women for Women Int’l has a myriad of ways in which you can get involved too. Through their Sponsor a Sister program you can help fund a woman’s comprehensive education program where she gains valuable job training and connects with a larger network of women in similar situations. You can also become a WfWI Ambassador, working to raise both funds and awareness for the organization’s efforts to support women survivors of war and their families. The skills, knowledge, and resources they obtain through these programs allows these women to create sustainable change for themselves, their families, and their communities.
Partner with Julia, Alex, and all of us at Herbivore in celebrating women everywhere by putting your dollars to work this week.
