It’s the month of March which means it’s Women’s Month! An annual declared month highlighting and celebrating the contributions of women to events in history and contemporary society. There are so many inspiring women out there, doing incredible things in business, for families and for the world, who don’t always get the exposure, the means and the thanks they need or deserve.
Please take a little time out this month to support amazing women, founders of businesses and small business owners, now more than ever we need to reach out and support small businesses and each other. 83% of business owners on Etsy are female, and from the 5,500 creative small businesses on Not On The High Street, 89% are established and run by women. We sell on both platforms and are proud to be a part of such an amazing group of female founders.
I am the founder of a small business and I’m so proud of all the amazing women I work with. We’re a creative company of artisans and without those around me, who support HB, champion what we do and empower each other we wouldn’t be here today, so thank you… you know who you are.
With Mother’s Day too this month, we have the opportunity to thank those who’ve helped us from the moment we came into the world and for those who’ve helped and loved us along the way. We need our role models, now and for the future, and for the next generation in order to change the landscape!
We may not be meeting up this Mother’s Day, going out to bars, cafes, restaurants and theatres, or having a girly day out shopping but send your someone special a card to let them know you are thinking about them.
A card they can keep and cherish.
A card to make them smile.
A card just from you!
You can have your cards handwritten by us and sent directly to the receiver if you can’t meet them in person. If you place an order through our NOTHS shop you can do this through the ordering system, or if you place an order on our Hummingbird Shop you can send us a quick message to firstname.lastname@example.org with the message you’d like us to handwrite inside the card and the correct delivery address.
Our deliveries are still going out on time and as yet we have not been notified by Royal Mail of any issues with the post. There’s just a couple of days left so get yours today!
