March 8, International Women's Day, is a time when people around the globe focus on the needs and contributions of women. This year, on Sunday, March 8, 2009, women and men worldwide will commemorate the day by highlighting the plight of the women of Gaza and sending an international delegation to Gaza to hand-deliver humanitarian aid. See list below of CODEPINK-supported groups in Gaza.
The women of Gaza are living with grace and resilience under incredibly stressful and dangerous conditions; for $10, you can brighten their day and remind them that the women of the world are with them in solidarity. Your $10 gift basket, designed to be both utilitarian and "pampering", will contain contain vitamins, first-aid materials, and food items, but also sweet-smelling soaps and shampoos, a beautiful pink head scarf, sweets and tea.
In honour of International Women's Day visit my sisters over at Code Pink and Donate to Have Humanitarian Aid Delivered to the Women of Gaza. Please show the women of Gaza that you care.
