International Women’s Day 2011

Happy International Women’s Day! Peace Cordâ„¢ is committed to empowering women of Afghanistan through the handmade bracelets that they weave, as well as supporting the troops so that they can provide assistance with grassroots initiatives in rural areas of Afghanistan. By ordering a bracelet and Wearing Peace Proudly, you can help contribute to both of these important causes!

You can find out what Connie K. Duckworth, Founder & CEO of ARZU STUDIO HOPE (partners with Spirit of America on the Peace Cord initiative), had to say in honor of International Women’s Day in her blog post today.
