We are proud to support International Women’s Day from March 2nd to 8th.

International Women's Day is a global day marking the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women, while calling for action to accelerate gender parity.

We have pledged to donate 1% of sales on March the 8th to ActionAid, a global movement of women standing together to claim their human rights and campaign against injustice.

To help us celebrate, you can make donations in-store and online. 

Donate to ActionAid

We are heading outdoors to raise money for ActionAid.


This microadventure includes a 10km hike from Spit to Manly, following the coastline and bushland. Experienced and enthusiastic female guides will take the small group along the track, basking by the beautiful ocean and native wildlife, ending up in Manly Beach just in time for lunch. Tickets are limited so be quick!

A short drive from Auckland takes us to the wild west coast (South Piha). This trip is a private tour with a small group of fellow women to explore the west coast for International Women’s Day. There will be different stops along the way, with a chance for hiking, swimming and exploring - think beautiful waterfalls, native forests, beaches and fresh water swimming. Tickets are limited so be quick!

Right now in Nepal, ActionAid is empowering 1,000 women and girls to break the cycle of poverty and live free from violence. Women like 25-year-old Neera are already seeing changes.

“I believe that women are compelled to go through all forms of violence because they are dependent upon their husband for all kinds of basic needs,” Neera explains. “Thanks to ActionAid for providing me sewing training, I am able to generate income on my own. It has not only made me financially independent but also helped me to make important decisions in my life.”

Your donation will:

  • educate and train women in new skills to earn a living like tailoring, raising goats or running a shop so they can support themselves and their families.
  • support women to change attitudes in their communities, helping them to end child marriage and reduce violence.
