Now more than ever, International Women’s Day is a big deal. I’m thrilled that I’m in living in an era where women support and empower each other and I hope that if I ever have a daughter that this movement stays just as strong.
Last year, I celebrated International Women’s Day with a post about locally and woman-owned small businesses in the district. (Read the post here.) This year, I’m partnering with thredUP to help share the news about latest campaign in support of the holiday. If you aren’t familiar with the online shop, it’s Enter an online fashion resale site that functions as a thrift shop and a spot to sell your gently used clothes. You can either order a “closet clean out bag” and send in your own, gently used clothes, or shop their amazing selection of majorly discounted items. Major bonus, if the company doesn’t want to purchase your used items, they donate them to charity! You can read about my experience working with thredUP in detail here.
On Thursday, the brand is releasing a list of their top 30 suppliers—which includes all types of women, everyone from stay-at-home moms to actresses to businesses executives. You’ll be able to exclusively shop from their closets and the best part is that ALL proceeds go to Girls Inc. The non-profit empowers young women, helping them obtain a high school education, vision career paths, and develop leadership skills.
You all know I’m a a big advocate of shopping for a cause, and I can’t wait to see what thredUP has pulled together from these fabulous women!
