International Women's Day Centenary: Text-to-Give for the Women in Your Life!

Posted by mGive Team on Mar 8, 2011 1:49:00 AM

Today March 8th 2011, marks the 100th anniversary of International Women’s Day. According to Women Watch, the day was commemorated for the first time on March 19th, 1911 in Austria, Denmark, Germany and Switzerland, following its establishment during the Socialist International meeting the prior year. More than one million women and men attended rallies on that first commemoration. Now 100 years later, on the International Women’s Day Centenary, nonprofit organizations still recognize, celebrate and fundraise for women around the world without regard of their national, ethnic, religious political or economic differences. The International Women's Day website sites hundreds of celebratory events occurring across the globe today; the United States alone has 240 listed events for this day specifically.

Whether you’re a man or a woman, 5 years old or 105 years old, celebrate all the women in your life today and make every other day International Women’s Day as well! Below are a few examples of organizations you can support by simply texting in a donation. Please pull out your phone and make a donation to support the women of today and tomorrow.
