2020 has certainly been a year that we’ll all remember vividly for many years to come.
And, while many of us have faced significant challenges over the last 12 months, one group of women will always remember 2020 for an entirely different reason.
Every year, women from around Auckland rely on Women’s Refuge to provide shelter and support as they escape from domestic abuse. Throughout 2020, this incredible organisation has worked tirelessly to help women and children fleeing terror at home.
That’s why, this year, Maman partnered with Women’s Refuge to bring a little extra joy into the lives of women and children who have bravely started new lives away from abusive homes.
We called this project ‘The Gift of Giving Back’ because we recognise that many in our community share our passion for giving back – especially during the festive season.
From the 4th to the 15th of December, we accepted beautiful gift-wrapped Wish List donations and put them under the tree in-store.
We were utterly blown away with the support from our customers, local businesses and community.
On the 16th of December our founders Kate and Emma delivered all donations to Women’s Refuge ahead of the Christmas Giving Day they were having that weekend.
Finally, a massive THANK YOU for all your donations. We are proud to say we will be making The Gift of Giving an annual partnership with the amazing people at The Women's Refuge.
