Shop for Change launches this March 8 for International Women’s Day
For the 24hrs over IWD, Shop for Change will see select i=Change retail partners donate $5 from every purchase (increased from $1) to women and girls’ empowerment projects in Australia and 13 countries.

i=Change has already raised over $1 million and counting, powered by retailers such as Pandora Jewellery, Camilla and Nobody Denim. This has been achieved by brands committing $1 from every sale, allowing their customers to choose where it goes, and transparently tracking the impact in real-time. (i=Change donates 100% of funds raised).
There are two launch events on March 7 for retailers and media to attend:

In partnership with iconic brands, with a focus on empowering women and girls, $1 million raised and counting has already impacted the lives of over 257,850 people in 14 countries.
“International Women’s Day has always been a day to acknowledge both the progress and significant challenges still facing women and girls globally. We wanted to create a way Australians could engage and shop for change, to raise much needed funds to meaningfully impact these
