With Mother’s Day close upon us, want to stay one step of the curve this year with a nice Mother’s Day gift. My younger girls are always looking for ways to shower their mom with the gifts. So this year we decided to do a little online shopping for two reasons, one to be secretive, and get the best bang for our buck.
Our first and only stop with our online shopping adventure was at Walmart.com. We immediately found plenty of Mother’s Day gift ideas that were unique and practical, just like what we were looking for. In our browsing, we noticed that Walmart supports women-owned business from all over the world. So like any inqusisitive 10 year old, we took a peek at some of the hand-made gifts, that looked authentic, very nice.
For the first time, as a part of Walmart’s Empowering Women Together initiative, several new women suppliers from the U.S., Peru, Haiti and India are being introduced to an entirely new audience of shoppers—Walmart store shoppers.
Both the Full Circle Apron and Full Circle Exchange Infinity Scarf are products are in Walmart stores provided by the Walmart Empowering Women Together program.
At Full Circle Exchange we strive to empower women in our communities and around the world. By providing steady employment and fair wages we are able to help these women lift themselves from poverty and harness their true beauty and potential.
After perusing the full line of Mother’s Day gifts online with the girls, we decided to go with a Full Circle Exchange 3 Piece Scarf, Gift Bag and Card Set. We liked the 3 piece set with a gift bag and card, because we also decided to purchase a Full Circle Exchange 2 Piece Hot and Cold Beverage Set.
I think the girls enjoyed shopping online with Walmart, and especially felt empowered know they are help another mom provide for their family. So if you are still in need of Mother’s Day gifts, would suggest looking at Walmart, and seriously consider purchasing a piece from the Walmart’s Empowering Women Together initiative.
About Walmart’s Global Women’s Economic Empowerment Initiative
In September 2011, Walmart announced its global Women’s Economic Empowerment Initiative. The program’s key goals were formed through conversations with leaders from government, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), philanthropic groups and academia and include increasing sourcing from women-owned businesses, empowering nearly 1 million women through training, and promoting diversity and inclusion representation within our merchandise and professional services suppliers. Empowering Women Together is part of this initiative’s 5-year commitment through 2016 to source $20 billion from women-owned businesses.
