It’s the most wonderful time of the year, and gift shopping is in full swing! Whether you’re looking for a special something for a friend, partner or Secret Santa, finding the perfect gift that also gives back is an incredible feeling. You get to warm the heart of the person who receives it while making a real difference in the world at the same time—what could be better?
We know that finding gifts that give back isn’t always easy, so this month we’re featuring Lush Charity Pot partners that sell fab gifts to support their organizations.
Meet She Should Run
She Should Run is a non-profit organization founded in 2011 with an ambitious goal in mind: to create a path to elected leadership for women of all backgrounds. Their mission is to expand the pool of women running for office in the United States by providing community, resources and growth opportunities for aspiring political leaders.
By developing unique online and in-person programs, and building a supportive and empowering community, She Should Run offers a starting point for women considering a run for public office. Some women don’t believe they’re ready, while other brilliant and inspiring female leaders don’t even consider themselves a good fit for elected office, probably because they’ve never considered it. Through She Should Run’s Ask a Woman to Run tool, individuals can nominate the influential and highly effective women who they believe were born to lead. To date, She Should Run has encouraged over 40,000 women to run through their Ask a Woman to Run program. And they’re committed to getting at least 250,000 women to run by 2030.
Another program that helps women on the road to impactful leadership is the She Should Run Incubator. Sometimes all it takes is a little encouragement to help us see ourselves in a new light, or on a new career path. For many, imagining themselves in a new career – especially one in the public sphere – can be daunting. With the She Should Run Incubator, women are encouraged to envision themselves in public leadership, and are given access to role models, mentors and thoughtful guidance and advice.
At She Should Run, women of all backgrounds are offered the support they need to start their journey to elected office. And with your help, even more influential female leaders can emerge and play a role in shaping the future.
