10 holiday gifts from the women of Global Sisters
As Christmas draws near and we get closer to the end of one very challenging year, it is time to get barefoot, breathe, relax, spend time with those you love and connect with nature.
For many it is also a time to bestow gifts, and it is a great time to find something to give that comes with a story and love.
Global Sisters support Australian women who are working towards financial independence and face barriers to mainstream employment. We support small business and encourage values of being community minded, kind to animals and eco-conscious.
In this article, we are going to discuss 10 items that will be excellent gifts for your loved ones this season, all coming from the women of Global Sisters. Each sale will go directly to the women behind the products and will contribute to their financial independence.
Most products are made in Australia and most are handmade. You can read about the woman behind your beautiful purchase on the Marketplace and know that with every purchase you are buying directly from a woman-led small business and supporting her, her family and her community. Support the women of Global Sisters and and #BackHerBrilliance this Christmas.
