I'm excited to share with you the launch of Walmart's Empowering Women Together initiative! How fitting for Women's History Month. Through this program, Walmart is providing us an opportunity to support women owned businesses from around the world. On the site you can select from 200 items from 19 businesses from various countries: Peru, Rwanda, Kenya, U.S., Haiti, Cambodia, Nepal and Canada. Each product is unique and shows the cultural flavor of it's country.
Since Mother's Day will be here before I know I decided to check out possible gift ideas for myself and the special women in my life. I am in love with so many of the products available! There's everything from jewelry, food, clothing, iPad and laptop cases and home decor items. Here are some of my favorites. to sure check out Walmart's Empowering Women Pinterest board and pin some of your favorites.
With each purchase we are helping to expand the reach of women owned businesses. We are empowering women and in turn empowering their employees and communities. Empowering Women Together is a part of Walmart’s Global Women’s Economic 5-year commitment through 2016 to source $20 billion from women-owned businesses. As a mom and small business owner, I sincerely appreciate Walmart's commitment to the community and it's sustainability.
