This week is Anti-Poverty week in Australia and Etsy Australia is doing its part by partnering with Plan International to help support the Because I am a Girl Campaign.
“Anti-Poverty Week is a week where all Australians are encouraged to organize or take part in an activity aiming to highlight or overcome issues of poverty and hardship here in Australia or overseas. It was established in Australia as an expansion of the UN’s annual International Anti-Poverty Day on October 17. In 2015 Anti Poverty Week will be held from the 11th to the 17th of October.”
The main aims of Anti-Poverty Week are to:
– Strengthen public understanding of the causes and consequences of poverty and hardship around the world and in Australia; and
– Encourage research, discussion and action to address these problems, including action by individuals, communities, organisations and governments.
You can get involved by supporting our Australian Etsy Sellers and spread the word about the #Makeforgood Campaign! Christmas shopping never looked better
Our wonderful Etsy Artisans have created some amazing and beautiful pieces for #Makeforgood. Perhaps it is the inspiration of knowing that their product gives not only to the purchaser…but keeps on giving to help women and girls living in poverty in Cambodia!
These lovely jewellery pieces are a beautiful gift with meaning for someone special and a minimum of 20% of the sale price is donated to Plan International. What a wonderful way to empower Women and Girls with your Christmas shopping this year!
Or perhaps you love Home Decor. Here are some wonderful ways in which we can spread the love this year to help others!
