DAY 3:

After reading a friend’s post about Covenant House (an organization that works with homeless youth in Vancouver) and their need for donations for their Christmas backpacks, I began thinking. How could we ensure that the young women at Covenant House were able to read the inspiring messages about women’s equality that are featured in the Dreams for Women calendar? This also got me thinking about how there are many young women and girls from disadvantaged backgrounds who might really enjoy our calendar and who might not have very many gifts this holiday season.

So, we decided at Antigone to put aside 100 calendars that could be purchased at cost and donated to organizations like Covenant House and other groups that are providing young women and girls with gifts this holiday season. To start us off, I personally purchased 25 calendars for the special price of $5! These calendars will be donated to Covenant House for their backpacks! Not only does this bring me 25 calendars closer to my 100 calendar goal, but I get to know that the calendars are going to young women and girls who don’t have very many other gifts this holiday season.


Want to donate some calendars to Covenant House? Know of an organization near you that is giving gifts to disadvantaged youth? Shoot us an e-mail at with the quantity you would like to buy and the address of the organization you would like to send them to and we will give you a quote for the shipping costs and send them off to make some girl happy this holiday season! At the special price of $5 each, these calendars are a great opportunity for you to give back to your community and ensure that a girl is inspired by the messages in the calendar! Act now, because there are only 100 calendars set aside at this special price!
