Gifts That Give Back

by | Nov 27, 2013 | Women

During the holiday, there are so many gifts to choose from for your friends and family. If you are looking for gifts for a good cause or gifts that empower women this holiday season, Wal-Mart’s Empowering Women Together online destination is a great place to find a gift that truly gives back.

The Empowering Women Together program was designed to help small women-owned businesses succeed and grow by showcasing their products online. The program links very small women-owned businesses around the world with customers who can then access products they otherwise wouldn’t be able to purchase. With each purchase, consumers lift and empower the women behind these products to create new jobs and improve both their own lives and the lives of their families and communities.
