Happy International Women's Day!
We are celebrating women all month long with our #wehiketoheal campaign, but today we wanted to take a moment to wish YOU a very happy International Women's Day! You are powerful, brilliant and inspiring. We are grateful for you and all that you contribute to this
community and to the world!
This year the IWD campaign is asking us to #BeBoldForChange, and in an effort to do just that we are supporting CARE's Walk in Her Shoes campaign.
"In the world’s poorest countries, women and girls walk nearly 4 miles every day to retrieve clean water for their families, which often keeps them from an education, a career, and independence."
4 miles = 10,000 steps, so in solidarity with these women and girls, CARE has challenged us to walk 10,000 steps per day starting today, March 8th through March 14th. So get your Fitbits and step trackers ready ladies, it's time to start moving!
We'll continue to raise funds for the Walk in Her Shoes campaign through the rest of the month. If you are interested in supporting, you can purchase one of our #wehiketoheal signature Tee's and a portion of the proceeds will go to the campaign, or you can donate directly to Walk in Her Shoes HERE. These funds will go towards creating a better future for these women and girls.
"Around the world, women work two-thirds of all working hours, earning only 10% of the world’s income. When women cannot contribute to their family’s and community’s economic development, a powerful resource goes untapped."
So today, whether you are walking 10,000 steps, wearing red, or skipping out of work in support of #daywithoutwomen, let's celebrate women everywhere. We are not competitors or enemies, we are sisters, let's lift each other up. How will you be bold for change?
