International Women’s Day is fast approaching (this Friday the 8th of March) and Australian clothing brand Cotton On have started selling super cool t-shirts and sustainable tote bags that will support and aid women globally.
The Cotton On Foundation which is the philanthropic arm of the brand, focuses on “empowering young women through quality education and wellbeing programs”
According to the official press release, in just the last year alone, the Cotton On Foundation has impacted the lives of young women in the following ways:
- 3,012 women were provided with antenatal care and supported through their pregnancy across COF’s three health care centres in Uganda
- 648 babies for safely delivered under the supervision of trained midwives
- 909 female students were provided with sanitary pads as part of our WASH (Water, Sanitary and Hygiene) programs
- 385 Nutrition Mission graduates with the majority of these being female (*Nutrition Mission is a community and training education program focused on good food and nutritional practices).
$10 from every customised International Women’s Day t-shirt will go to the Cotton On Foundation’s global projects as well as 100% of the proceeds from all the totes and tissues sold.
We applaud you Cotton On, and we’ll definitely be getting ourselves one of these awesome t-shirts and a tote or two…
The IWD campaign will be running until March 10th and you can shop the products online here.
