Join SmiLe’s charity campaign #MarchForWomen

On the occasion of International Women’s Day on March 8th, SmiLe launches, in collaboration with Skåne Stadsmission, the month-long charity ‘March for Women’ to garner support for women in need and their families. 

SmiLe is a strong supporter of gender equality and women empowerment, with a half of the CEOs of SmiLe’s member companies being women. While helping to forge a gender equal world in the professional environment, we also want to contribute and help women outside our community.

Starting on the International Women’s Day, SmiLe invites community members and friends to join the “March for Women” charity by offering financial and in-kind support to women & mothers who are trying to make ends meet for them and their families.

The “March for Women” initiative is accepting donations for the whole month of March, and the donations will be given to Skåne Stadsmission. Those interested in contributing are welcome to do so in any of the following ways:

1. Spread the word for ‘March for Women’ and invite as many people as possible to participate

2. Offer in-kind donations such as clothes, shoes, hygiene products, non-perishable foods, toys, books and any other product that you think can be of use. Donations can be delivered to SmiLe meeting room in our office or shipped to: SmiLe Incubator AB, Medicon Village, Byggnad 402A, Scheelevägen 8, 223 63 LUND Sweden

3. Offer Gift cards from shops that can be of use such as super markets & grocery stores, pharmacies, clothing stores, furnishing stores, electronics stores (delivered as above). 

3. Offer monetary donations directly to Skåne Stadsmission by Swish writing “March for Women by SmiLe Community”. You can either scan the QR code or enter the number 1233183464
