1. Give Back To Women
There are so many organizations all over the world that are doing good for women and children. Giving back not only helps others, but it gives us a sense of purpose, fulfillment, and pride that can only come from being selfless. Some of my favorite organizations for women are I Support The Girls, One Heart World-Wide, Dress For Success, One love Foundation, Equality Now, V-Day, Polaris Project, Times Up, and Me Too just to name a few. If you do a little research you're bound to come across a charity that you'll love and best of all, it's so easy to give. Whether it's $5 or $5,000 women are in need of your help today. We need you to give, to fight, to educate, to inspire, to speak out, and most of all to stand with us.
3. Support Women-Owned Businesses
You'll probably shop at least one time this month so why not shop women-owned businesses? If you're on this page reading this, then you're off to a great start. Social Sunday is a women-owned business that is passionate about giving back, supporting local women-owned businesses (check out the brands we love sections), and empowering women everywhere with our tees. You can shop our women empowerment collection here. Looking for more women-owned businesses but don't know where to find them? Here are a few resources. You're welcome. We Are Women-Owned, Women-Owned Directory, SBA 8(A) for female minority-owned businesses, and We NYC.
4. Tell A Women You Admire How Wonderful She Is
This is the easiest way to celebrate women this month and it comes straight from the heart. Chances are you have and know many amazing women in your own life. They deserve to know how you feel about them, and how wonderful they are. Women are strong, beautiful, smart, and talented and they deserve to hear that they are. It's time to get that paper and pen out and write the women you love a hand-written note. Tell them stories of times you thought they were amazing. Remind them of a moment they showed their strength, beauty, and bravery. Stamp it, and mail it away. These women will not only be surprised to be getting a hand-written note mailed to their front door in 2019 (so crazy, right?) but they will also be so touched by your words.
5. Girls Getaway
There's nothing better than a little girls getaway. Preferably to a warm place with lots of yummy food, wine, and the girls you love the most. Grab the squad and plan a little weekend away to celebrate just how amazing you all are. Coming together with your squad will not only make them feel less alone but that they have a support system with them all the time. Top it off some a cute group photo that you can share on Instagram and remember forever. Looking for some trip inspo? Check out these four affordable warm-weather destinations.
