In July I made a pledge to donate 10% of my monthly sales to an organization that is working towards helping vulnerable or under represented people; or otherwise trying to change our world for the better of all. It's one small commitment I can make every month.
The organization that will receive 10% of my sales throughout the month of March and in honor of Women's History Month is: MADRE.
"MADRE is an international women's human rights organization. We partner with community-based women's groups worldwide facing war and disaster. Our mission is to advance women’s human rights by meeting urgent needs in communities and building lasting solutions to the crises women face. Our history is rooted in progressive movements for peace, justice and women’s human rights."
For every sale I receive through the month of March I will donate 10% to MADRE. Sales are totaled at the end of each month, rounding up to the nearest $5 to make the donation within the first week of the following month.
For the month of February I chose the Facing History and Ourselves.
"Facing History fosters empathy and reflection, improves students’ academic performance, reinvigorates teachers, and builds safe and inclusive schools. By integrating the study of history, literature, and human behavior with ethical decision making and innovative teaching strategies, our program enables secondary school teachers to promote students’ historical understanding, critical thinking, and social-emotional learning. As students explore the complexities of history, and make connections to current events, they reflect on the choices they confront today and consider how they can make a difference.
Thanks to your purchases in Feb I was able to donate $145 to their cause.
