So today is the start of National Women’s Business Week, which is something every woman should know about. Tory Burch has partnered with ACCION USA, the nation’s largest microfinance provider, and launched the Tory Burch Foundation, an organization that offers economic opportunities for women and their families in the United States.
It only takes $5,000 to $10,000 to start a new business but more than 10 million micro-entrepreneurs can’t access the capital they need so every little bit helps since single mothers are at the highest risk of poverty and are the most likely to be self-employeed entrepreneurs.
Please donate if you can and also make sure to check out the Tory Burch Foundation line of merchandise, which all showcase the sunflower logo, which is Tory’s favorite flower and symbolizes a pendant her father once gave her mother as a gift.
CONTEST: In honor of National Women’s Business Week and the Tory Burch Foundation, I’m giving away one copy of the Tory Burch Foundation CD. You may have already read my post on the CD but if not, I’ll tell you…it’s a GREAT CD so just leave a comment and email me to win! Contest ends Monday, October 25, 2010.
