This year we wanted to share our love and hope with all the women and their children in difficulties. Domestic abuse happens to 1 in 5 women at some stage in their lives. It can be physical, emotional, verbal, financial, or a combination of these, and many of us can’t even imagine how vulnerable these women become when they leave their abusers to fight for their rights and freedom. SONAS has been helping hundreds of women and children experiencing domestic abuse in the Dublin region providing refuge, general advice, support with legal issues. They advocate on women and children’s behalf with other services and on issues that impact the safety, welfare, and wellbeing of women and children experiencing domestic abuse.
So this year in the very heart of Christmas we’ll invite you to help us do something meaningful while gifting our loved ones. Let’s share our care and compassion with these beautiful women who can’t show their faces because they have to hide.
WHY DO WE SUPPORT SONAS?
When we launched our small skincare company Cardoon right before the pandemic hit the world, we didn’t know how far we would get in such a difficult situation. All we knew was that we would like to share our passion to empower women through conscious skincare and self-care routines to make them feel better. Because we all know that when we feel good our skin glows, and we have more strength and confidence.
When we care about someone we want them to be safe and well, to have a fulfilling life and relationships with friends and family where they are appreciated for who they are. We, the two founders of Cardoon Skincare are moms, separated women who have been going through difficulties as well, and we want all women and their children out there to be safe and cherished. No controlling or abusive act by a partner is acceptable and we would like to support them as much as we can.
HOW TO DONATE TOGETHER WITH US?
We will wrap all our products in a lovely festive gift wrap along with a special Christmas card. You can choose from two gift card options “Someone thinks you are beautiful” or “You are my Christmas sparkle”.
Simply add one of the gift cards to your cart, select the value of your donation which can be the value of €2,€5, €10, or €15. Cardoon collects all the donations until the 23rd of December midnight and the entire donation will be sent to SONAS on the 24th of December.
We will also provide small self-care packages to the refuge center and run a workshop in December to cherish these women and their children this Christmas.
