What International Women's Day Means to Us!
International Women's Day is a fantastic way to celebrate and acknowledge all women and their accomplishments. To me it's not just appilcaible to women who have received awards, medals and noble prizes while that is amazing and honourable and I highly commend these incredible women. But for me it's just acknowledging everyday women the mothers, daughters, sisters and grandmothers. It is also understanding how far we have come and how much we have achieved as a society. However I still believe we have a long way to go though!
How is One of a Kind Skincare Celebrating International Women's Day?
Well, I could have a massive sale on our amazing products but I really do not want to commercialise this amazing event and would rather do something that is more proactive. As a kind business this is our core value to help and be kind so we will be donating all proceeds from March Sales to an amazing organisation called Women's Community Shelters. This incredible organisation establishes new shelters which helps provide short term emergency accommodation and supports women in a safe environment. This lovely organisation also helps women by providing counselling helping women rebuild their self-esteem and achieve control and fulfilment in their lives.
For more information or to donate directly to the organisation visit www.womenscommunityshelters.org.au
Why does it even matter?
The statistics are alarming and just completely unfair that in a developed country like Australia we are still experiencing issues of domestic violence, women fleeing their homes due to feeling unsafe and unable to leave violent partners due to financial dependency.
These are the stats:
- 56 000 women are homeless every night in Australia.
- More than 1 in 3 women are turned away from crisis accommodation every night.
- 55 women killed in 2020 due to domestic violence
These are only three! There are so much more, my heart goes out to any woman feeling or experiencing such tremendous circumstances! I believe these horrifying statistics really pull on the heart strings no woman deserves to feel vulnerable and have to face such hardship.
So the whole month of March we will be donating to Women's Community Shelters to stand by our sisters who are doing it tough! All products from our website make a difference, anything you purchase will have a massive impact on the community! Be Kind!
Love and Light,
