At Erstwilder, we believe in spreading joy, and doing a little good in the world where we can. This includes supporting causes which are meaningful to team members here at at HQ.
Missy, the lovely lady talking to you all on social, live chat and answering all of your emails, recently brought Endo March Australia to our attention because she, like so many other women, have been affected by this affliction. So, we’re helping raise funds for Endometriosis Australia, to assist them in the wonderful work they do, raising awareness, educating and empowering girls and women to be able to seek help and supporting endometriosis research.
So, starting now until 11:59pm (AEDT) Sunday 14th March, we’re donating 20% of all sales on ERSTWILDER.COM to support the efforts of Endo March Australia. Plus, we’ll donate an additional $10 for any order over $150 AUD placed during this time.
Endo March is a worldwide campaign aimed at raising awareness of Endometriosis, a disease that affects 1 in 10 women - that’s approximately 200 million women and girls worldwide. The campaign and its events are all run by volunteers who are passionate about creating change for women and girls with endometriosis to raise funds, increase education and awareness.
For those not fully educated on the subject – as many of us weren’t until Missy sat us down – here’s a short explainer from Endometriosis Australia;
Endometriosis is a common disease in which the tissue that is similar to the lining of the womb grows outside it in other parts of the body. More than 830,000 (more than 11%) of Australian *women suffer from endometriosis at some point in their life with the disease often starting in teenagers. Symptoms are variable and this may contribute to the 7 to 12-year delay in diagnosis. Common symptoms include pelvic pain that puts life on hold around or during a woman’s period. It can damage fertility. Whilst endometriosis most often affects the reproductive organs it is frequently found in the bowel and bladder and has been found in muscle, joints, the lungs and the brain.
Use this as an excuse to finally start your very own Erstwilder collection, or to shop a gift for a loved one, or to grab those next must-have pieces on your list. Either way, your support will be helping bring a little joy to others, and that a purchase you can feel great about. 💛
