International Women’s Day 2015: Get Involved. Support Smart Works.

It has been an amazing two weeks at Smart Works and we’d like to say a massive thank you. The number of people who have supported us by given their time, clothes and money has been inspiring to witness.

This year, we were lucky enough to be invited by the Mayor of London to the ‘Women Who Inspire’ event where 5 wonderful women’s charities celebrated International Women’s Day at City Hall. Many of our volunteers joined us to listen to talks from inspiring women who have overcome difficult circumstances and hear more about the crucial good work each charity does.

We’ve all been feeling #PrettyPowerful thanks to the absolutely amazing support from Bobbi Brown Cosmetics. This year, Bobbi Brown have released a Pot Rouge II cheek and lip tint of which 100% of proceeds (less VAT) will be donated to Smart Works. The whole Bobbi Brown team have been behind us, from selling salads in our honour to collecting clothing and spreading the word on social media. We also had incredible make-up artists visit both of our offices and spend a day making over our clients as a special treat. We cannot thank the Bobbi Brown team enough for the astounding effort to help Smart Works as we look to build our presence around the UK.

Throughout the period leading up to and following International Women’s Day we have been offered lots of support from organisations who have run suit drives for Smart Works and asked us to come along and speak at events. We have also taken delivery of beautiful clothing donated to us by our retail supporters, including Hobbs and The Outnet. All this means we have a beautifully stocked dressing room and some incredibly inspired clients coming to see us.

We are very appreciative of the fantastic support we have received and we hope everyone enjoyed the celebrations as much as we did.
