Empowering Women Together is a campaign recently launched by Walmart to empower women all over the world.  It is designed to help them build a better life and future for themselves and their families.  Walmart has made a 5 year commitment (through 2016) to source $20 billion from women-owned businesses.  They have created an online destination that gives shoppers an opportunity to buy beautiful and uniquely designed products that were hand crafted by small, women-owned businesses all over the world.

At launch, Empowering Women Together will offer more than 200 items from 19 businesses in nine countries. Products include jewelry, home accessories, paper mache, iPad and laptop cases, coffee and tea sets and specialty foods from Peru, Rwanda, Kenya, Haiti, Cambodia and Nepal, America and Canada.

Each purchase made, uplifts and empowers the women who are behind these products.  Our purchases will help create new jobs that will improve the lives of these women along with their family, friends and communities.  Check out this quick video to see some of the products and women involved:

For more in depth stories about these women and their businesses check out these videos HERE and HERE.

Walmart has also created a Mother’s Day Look Book with more personal stories from these women and a look at some of the products available through Walmart’s website.  There are so many incredible items that would make the perfect Mother’s Day gift.  I know I would LOVE some of the fabric bangles!

 

***Today, Walmart is hosting a giveaway, and one lucky winner is going to get $75 worth of these amazing products!***
