Giving Back – Holiday 2013
When the rain returns to Portland we find ourselves becoming reflective and even philosophical. This year our musings are suffused with gratitude. What an amazing year! We’ve launched new products and a new website, and expanded into new international markets and wonderful new venues here at home. For all this and more we’re grateful to our awesome clients and partners who make it all possible.
You may know that as a member of 1% for the Planet we’re committed to donating 1% of our gross sales each year to participating organizations (we’ve chosen to partner with EcoTrust.) This holiday season, from today through December 31st, to honor our customers and to celebrate women, we are proud to donate an additional 1% of our net revenue to The Global Fund for Women (GFW).
Founded in Palo Alto California in 1986, The Global Fund for Women’s mission is to, “advance the rights of women and girls worldwide by increasing the resources for and investing in women-led organizations and women’s collective leadership for change.” The founders were “convinced that women’s human rights and dignity were essential to the advancement of global agendas for social, economic, and political change.” We couldn’t agree more.
From one women-led company to the world, thank you for helping make this wonderful journey possible.
