Glam Scrubwear is a company that prides itself in our giving.
Our "Gifts of Glam Initiative" is our way of "GIVING BACK". We pledge to donate 10% of our annual sales profits to our initiative to make a positive impact and difference locally, statewide, and globally.
Devastatingly pervasive: 1 in 3 women globally experience violence.
Violence against women remains devastatingly pervasive and starts alarmingly young, shows new data from WHO and partners. Across their lifetime, 1 in 3 women, around 736 million, are subjected to physical or sexual violence by an intimate partner or sexual violence from a non-partner – a number that has remained largely unchanged over the past decade.
This violence starts early: 1 in 4 young women (aged 15-24 years) who have been in a relationship will have already experienced violence by an intimate partner by the time they reach their mid-twenties.
Through our "GIFTS of GLAM" initiative, we will help in the FIGHT AGAINST DOMESTIC VIOLENCE in many ways. Along with our 10% annual sales profit contribution- Our Annual "GET GLAM IN PURPLE GALA" fundraiser will be held every year during Domestic Violence Awareness Month (October) and will serve as another avenue to give a monetary donation to a chosen Domestic Violence Organization annually.
