When is a skirt not a skirt? When it’s an important gesture and a thoughtful example of women deciding to make a difference in other women’s lives.
It starts with you, women out there, choosing to purchase your next kicky summer skirt, or comfy headband or brightly colored belt from Open Arms. And it’s you, the women founders of Open Arms, employing resettled refugee women from war-torn countries and choosing to pay them a living wage. And it’s you, the women working at Open Arms, transforming donated recycled t-shirts into those items and in the process finding safety, comfort and community.
Men, by all means feel free to join in. Donate a load of t-shirts, volunteer at the production facility, read the stories, spread the word, or simply take the opportunity to support the process with a purchase. Arms are open!
