Women for Women International help women in war-torn regions rebuild their lives

From SheKnows UK
Mums in the Western world have it pretty good compared to mothers in developing countries who have to contend with poverty, war and disease as well as the demands of motherhood. If you want to do something to help these women all you have to do is buy a T shirt — and a very stylish one at that.

Blogzine Selfish Mother, the brainchild of writer Molly Gunn, has launched a range of "Mother" T-shirts and sweaters "to show solidarity for the global sistahood."

Profits from the sales of "Mother" designs — which are being promoted across social media as #MotherTee — go to Women for Women International, a charity which gives women in eight war-torn regions training programmes to help rebuild their lives.

Women for Women International say: “We really can't thank you enough for choosing to support Women for Women International through this inspiring project, which is so in keeping with what we at WfWI believe about the importance of solidarity and the power of bringing women together.”

As well as helping women less fortunate than ourselves, the #MotherTee is super soft, 85 percent organic cotton and looks super cute. Lots of proud mothers (including a couple of famous faces you might recognise) are posting their #MotherTee pictures to social media to encourage other mums to make the purchase.
