Confess, who knows when and what Women’s Day is?
(March 8th is International Women's Day) It was first celebrated in the early 1900’s as a way to start recognizing women’s rights. The earliest Women’s Day observance was held on February 28, 1909, in New York. It is celebrated mainly in Europe and Asia where people buy flowers and other gifts for the women in their lives.
The American flower industry wants to make this an American holiday. We were not sure how to promote this holiday but according to my daughters, if the holiday benefited women and women’s causes they could support it. I thought that was a great suggestion.
Therefore on this first Women’s Day promotion,
KB is donating 10% of our sales on March 6th to two groups:
Walnut Avenue Women’s Center in SantaCruz
Monarch Women’s Center in Watsonville.
KB is also advertising in the Santa Cruz Sentinel on March 1, 4 and 6
listing our customers who are also donating to local women’s causes on Women’s Day.
IF possible, please support one of these businesses.
Whether you buy flowers or not, on March 8th let the women in your life know
how much you appreciate them.
