We’re back at it again— a massive movement of matching t-shirts and raising money! Last year’s reach was even bigger than the first year—we had 75 women sporting shirts in 9 states & 3 countries and raised almost $650 for Women For Women International!
This year for International Women’s Day, I asked for group participation, and the shirt design is a direct result of others’ input about who comes to mind when they hear Laurel Thatcher Ulrich’s famous saying, “Well-behaved women seldom make history”: my fabulous designer took more than 100 suggestions and crafted them into this equally fabulous design paying tribute to remarkable women in many fields and eras who’ve made our current existences possible through their tireless labor, struggles, victories, and just the right amount of rule-breaking. Though the list could go on forever, you can see for yourselves a sampling of the rockstars we can hold near our hearts on March 8!
Ladies, our common ground goes beyond our chromosomes—I think we’ve all had the presence of inspiring women to serve as examples in our lives, be they famous historical figures, modern-day pop culture warriors, or unsung female heroes in our everyday lives. Had we not had such an abundance of positive role models, where would all of US be? Our 2013 beneficiary, The Girl Effect, aligns perfectly with this thinking. Read about their mission and watch this amazing video they put together.
As always, we have a fitted (option 1) and non-fitted (option 2) shirt option. Anyone is welcome to take part in our movement, but I will need to have your order & payment by MONDAY, FEBRUARY 18, in order to be able to process it and place it with the group’s.
Please comment below or email me (IWDtshirts gmail.com) if you have questions or interest in receiving more details!
P.S. Spread the goodness! This effort is NOTHING without your participation and support. Let the other powerful women in your workplace, residence, friends circle, and family know what you’re part of each IWD and invite them to join, too. PLEASE share/forward this along to other ladies in your network. 🙂
