A few weeks ago I shared with you about the launch of Empowering Women Together which is an element of Walmart’s Global Women’s Economic 5-year commitment through 2016 to source $20 billion from women-owned businesses. ( click here to read that article) .
I once again have jumped in to partner with Mom It Forward and Walmart to partner in support of Empowering Women Together With Mothers day just days away now is a perfect time to support and empower other moms across the world by supporting Empowering Women Together, an online destination that gives shoppers who want to buy unique and interesting products the opportunity to do so while supporting small women-owned businesses around the world.
Watch the below Video as one example of Empowering Women Together
Being a mom we know how difficult it is to just raise our children make sure they get an education, eat right, have clean clothes to wear, stay caught up on those doctor and dentist visits etc. Think about living in a third world country where the only possibility of feeding your children or providing them with an education or a visit to the doctor was if someone were to purchase the goods you created. If your anything like me your heart is ripped apart thinking there are children who go to bed hungry each night, who desperately need medications and an education. How can you help from the comfort of your home?
The answer to that is simple shop online and support Empowering Women Together the next time you have a gift to buy for a birthday, teacher gift or other celebration.
