Giving Tuesday: Helping Women In Need

Cyber Monday is great–but why not wait until Giving Tuesday to put your money in hands that make a difference in the world? #GivingTuesday is a global giving movement driven by individuals, families, organizations, businesses, and communities around the world. Now is the perfect time to talk to you family and friends about how you can use the holiday season to help those who are less fortunate or in greater need. If you still need something under the tree, check out a couple of our favorites below:

ppf00303_1_6Planned Parenthood, offering many women’s health services in addition to abortion, has a wide variety of shirts (and other products!) for sale. We love anything that supports women during their time of need, but we have to say the “Wicked Jezebel Feminist” shirt is our favorite!
From their website: “The official t-shirt of virtual reality experience Across the Line, an immersive virtual reality experience that places viewers in the shoes of a patient entering a health center for a safe and legal abortion. 
Across the Line is part of ongoing efforts by Planned Parenthood to reduce stigma and change the conversation around safe and legal abortion. Using real audio gathered at protests, scripted scenes, and documentary footage, the film is a powerful hybrid documentary-fiction depiction of the toxic environment that many health care providers, health center staff, and patients must walk through to provide or access health care on a typical day. “Wicked Jezebel Feminist” is a phrase shouted by an anti-abortion protestor in the film experience.”

thinxIn this office, we celebrate any product that makes the week of our periods easier. We celebrate it even more when it helps other women around the world. The easiest way to understand how THINX underwear works is to visit their website, but we want to emphasize that, once you make the switch, you may never go back. Also, for each pair of THINX underwear purchased, the company sends funds to their partner organization AFRIpads in Uganda. This organization trains women to sew and sell washable, reusable cloth pads at affordable prices, turning local women into entrepreneurs. The investment is worth it, trust us. And, today (11/28) and tomorrow (11/29) each purchase of full priced underwear you purchase will result in a $5 donation to Women Thrive Alliance. Save $10 on your purchase by using this link.
