March 8th is International Women's Day

Family/Friends,

Happy International Women’s Day to you! 

International Women's Day is a day dedicated to the celebration the economic, political, and social achievements of women past,  present, and future. On this day thousands of other women around the world commemorate the special occasion and partake in elaborate festivities.

Below are five ways women can all celebrate at a local level:

1. Celebrate your successes – no accomplishment is too small, so go on...toot your own horn :-)

2. Show the women in your life that you appreciate them – write a thank you note to your mom, sister or best friend or simply give a hug, you may just put a smile on someone’s face.

3. Invest in the future of women - donate or get involved with an organization that promotes the importance of a good education to the younger generation. 

5. Attend an event hosted for women by women  – attend an event that promotes women's health and equality. Or you may attend an event that instead celebrates the advancement and empowerment of women through the ages.

5. Connect in person - what better excuse to get together with some of your nearest and dearest than a day all about celebrating women? Gather all your favorite women and get together at a bar or cafe for a little quality time.


So, now go on and find a way to celebrate - no excuses :)

That's all for now foks. Until next time!
