International Women’s Day not only celebrates women’s achievements, but it’s also a global call to action to fight for gender equality. Looking to get involved but aren’t sure how to take part? Start by supporting one of the organizations we love here at Domino.
“I support Dana Farber Cancer Institute in honor of my best friend who was diagnosed with leukemia one week before her 26th birthday. She fought, and beat, cancer with the most inspiring strength and grace, and inspired me to start running Boston’s marathon on Dana Farber’s charity team. DFCI not only donates 100% of funds they raise to innovative cancer research, but they also saved my best friend, so how could I not support them?” -Jenna McMahon, Buyer
“I support Vitamin Angels. They are a very important organization that provides life-saving vitamins to women and children under the age of 5 at risk of malnutrition. Many people don’t realize that malnutrition is the number one cause of preventable child deaths. All over the world, women want the same thing – for their families and children to be healthy and happy. Vitamin Angels helps combat some of the most basic threats to those very things.” -Emily Hamilton, Account Manager
“Honor the Earth was co-founded by Native environmental activist Winona Laduke – a true powerhouse. She speaks with incredible clarity and integrity, and I’m in total awe of her calm persistence. The non-profit has been very involved in Standing Rock, and there can never be enough voices chanting “water is life.” In Native communities, women are traditionally the water protectors – and we as women are all connected to this movement.” -Alex Redgrave, Executive Editor
“I support Humble Design. It’s a great organization that brings amazing design and furniture to people in need.” -Jessica Rom Perez, Editor In Chief
