You Did It! March 28 2017
Thank you to a growing community of women empowering women
This month, hundreds of people came together to support the empowerment of women through the purchase of the Venus Necklace.
We began with over 500 necklaces and pledged to donate the entire $80 cost of the necklace to each customer’s choice of three charities that aligned with our company’s pillars—education, inspiration, and opportunity. Within 3 weeks, we had completely sold out of the necklace, raising over $40,000 for Women in Ag, Fast and Female, and the Canadian Women’s Foundation.
Women in Ag is a cause dedicated to supporting, educating, and connecting women in the agriculture industry. You have contributed to a $15,600 donation that benefits a scholarship to the University of Saskatchewan College of Agriculture and Bioresources. It will also go toward the annual “Advancing Women” conference, where women in the agriculture industry gather to learn, network, and support each other.
Fast and Female’s donation of $11,120 will help young women meet inspiring female role models, develop athleticism, and learn strategies to overcome barriers to continued participation in sports. The organization is dedicated to changing the culture around girls in sports and to keeping girls healthy, happy, and active.
The Canadian Women’s Foundation is a leading voice for women and girls in Canada. Your $13,520 donation will help support over 30,000 women and girls through community initiatives that work to end violence against women and move women out of poverty.
Thank you to everyone who purchased the Venus Necklace—we are so inspired by your contribution. You are a part of a growing community of women empowering women, and we hope you see the Venus as a symbol of this community and wear it with pride.
