The holiday season is here and it is time to give back to spread love and cheer. No one is better at serving the community than former First Lady Michelle Obama. American luxury department store chain, Saks Fifth Avenue, is joining Michelle in her efforts and is proudly supporting the Obama’s foundation Girls Opportunity Alliance. This collaboration brings a specially curated collection of giftable pieces with 100% of the net proceeds going towards the foundation. The collection varies from dresses, to cancdles, to blankets, and everything in between.
According to there website, the Girls Opportunity Alliance is “A program of the Obama Foundation, seeks to empower adolescent girls around the world through education, allowing them to achieve their full potential and transform their families, communities, and countries. We engage people around the world to take action to help adolescent girls and the grassroots leaders working to educate them. The Girls Opportunity Alliance aims to lift up the work being done around the world to empower adolescent girls through education.” The collection brings more opportunity to serve the foundation and helps expand the foundation in ways that serve more young ladies.
“In the spirit of holiday giving, Saks is making a generous donation that will help so many adolescent girls all over the world. This contribution to the Girls Opportunity Alliance will help these girls to reach their full potential—and that’s especially important as the pandemic continues to threaten their education, which would set us all back in the years and decades ahead. I’m excited to see the impact of this wonderful gift from Saks and how it can help support the work of the Girls Opportunity Alliance around the world,” Michelle stated when talking about the project. “When we give girls the chance to learn, we give them the opportunity to fulfill their potential, build healthier families, and contribute to their countries’ economies for generations to come. But right now, the education of millions of adolescent girls around the world is in jeopardy due to the pandemic. So many bright, determined girls are living in impossible circumstances, and the effects of this pandemic continue to ripple outward—threatening so much hard-earned progress that girls’ education organizations have made around the world. We’ve got to act fast to get their lives back on track. That’s why it’s so important for us at the Girls Opportunity Alliance to keep supporting grassroots organizations that are going above and beyond to help girls keep learning safely during the pandemic. We know we are not the only ones who feel this way—and we hope those who are interested in our mission don’t hesitate to join us in fulfilling it. We’re looking forward to making a difference for these girls and their futures—and in the process, creating a better world for all of us.”
