Today is International Women's Day – a day celebrating women's achievements around the world.
This year is particularly touching as we celebrate 100 years of the People's Representation Act, which allowed British women over 30 to vote for the first time.
Despite all the advances made in empowering and equating women, we still face some brutal realities.
Millions of women remain subjected to terrible mental and physical abuse. This is happening not only in war-torn regions of the world, but also on our doorstep. The police in the UK receive a domestic violence call every 30 seconds.
The women's shelter offers comfort and a safe haven for women and their children who suffer from domestic violence. Many women flee overnight and appear in their clothes and nothing else in their centers. Often with their children in tow.
Pai has donated to charity for several years – regular products and Christmas dinner packages. This week we are strengthening our support with our 1: 1 campaign, with which you can get involved!
For each Pai product purchased on our website today (March 8, 2018), we donate a product to the Refuge.
The Pai team will also donate personal items such as clothing and groceries. We have set up a collection box in our headquarters. So if you live on site and want to drop by, we'd love to get it!
Thank you for your support. Together we can bring a little comfort and normality to women in their time of absolute need.
