If there is something that you've had on your wishlist, now is the time to get it, knowing your purchase will go towards supporting these women.

Millions of people have come together to support and champion the causes they believe in and the communities in which they live.
When I first decided to expand on my business and launch my first clothing line, Voloshin, something that was very important to me was knowing that my clothing was made ethically. I researched extensively to find an area that would manufacture not only beautiful and high-quality clothing, but that would provide a healthy and fair work environment for those using their skills to craft the clothing. We landed on a city called Gurgaon, just southwest of New Delhi in Northern India.
This #GivingTuesday we knew we wanted to give back to this beautiful country, and found a charity that aligns with our values and mission - Women on Wings. Women on Wings collaborates with Indian enterprises that co-create employment for women in rural areas. A job means an income for these women, as well as economic autonomy and an escape from the cycle of poverty. It also means their children can go to school, which increases their chances of a better future.
