May her memory be blessed
Together, let's stand up against violence against women
International Day of Elimination of Violence Against Women
Last year we started our campaign inspired by the late Maya Wishnak who was brutally murdered by her partner.
We lost a beautiful soul, a young, inspiring woman, who promised herself at the age of 16 - "I will always try to change for the better".🙏🙏 We have used her illustrations on a collection of items.
By purchasing an item from the DO GOOD collection, you enable a safe job to our employees - all survivors of forced prostitution + 15% of every purchase goes to a partnering organization that operates shelters for women throughout the country.
