Celebrate International Women's Day
Order online or come to our store in Kailua during the month of March and help us make a donation to Hawaii's Domestic Violence Action Center.
In honor of International Women's Day, March 8, we're donating a portion of our sales to Hawaii's Domestic Violence Action Center. Why? This year's U.N. theme is "Women and Men United Against Violence against Women and Girls"
"Whether you're sending a gift to a friend or relative, or buying for
yourself, Lanikai Bath and Body's luxurious products are a great way to
celebrate being a woman while doing good for other women at the same time,"
said store Manager Margaret Peebles.
International Women's Day grew in part out of Russia's Women's Day, where
men give flowers to their wives, mothers, grandmothers and daughters.
Women are "given more compliments on this day than even on their birthday,"
according to a video posted on the site www.internationalwomensday.com
Since the early 19th Century, International Women's Day has focused on
issues of equality for women, and to celebrate their changing role in
society. International Women's Day will be celebrated throughout the
world,and is an officially holiday in a dozen countries, on March 8, 2009.
