Wednesday, March 8th is International Women’s Day, a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women.  At Appaman, it’s a chance to acknowledge the incredible contributions of women specifically in business and the workforce, because as a 95% female team, we feel the weight of this every day.

We work hard, we multitask, we support our fellow colleagues, and we share and celebrate the exciting moments together, including everything from professional or personal successes to internet-breaking news about Beyoncé’s legendary twin pregnancy announcement.

During a recent office meeting, we discussed International Women’s Day, the many events being held this Wednesday around the country and in our own city, and the implications on our staff. We decided that if a team member has an event, a project, a march or an experience they want to have on this day, we would not stop them and the work could wait.

The office will remain open, and to honor this day, we are donating 20% of all Appaman.com sales made through Friday, March 10th to the Malala Fund.

It’s estimated that worldwide, over 30 million primary school-aged girls are out of school, and 98 million will not complete their secondary education. The Malala Fund has a mission to help girls complete 12 years of safe, quality education. This is a cause that Appaman is proud to support.

We have two daughters that don’t want for anything.  As parents, it is a challenge and an important goal to help them understand how privileged they are to have food on the table, clothes on their backs, and, most importantly, the opportunity to attend school.

We hope that you will join us in supporting this cause.

If you are interested in contributing to the Malala Fund through your Appaman.com order, please be sure to place it by 11:59 PM on Friday, March 10, 2017.
