Your choice = change.
Here at Artesands, we are committed to making a difference in both the curvy swimwear industry and the wider world. That is why we have partnered with I=Change in our mission to create change and work toward a more inclusive and equal future.
We are honoured to help support charities that are enabling impactful change for those in need.
We give our customers the option of donating $1 of every order to a charity of their choice. See the details of the projects that we are supporting below:
Keep Girls in School
Millions of girls miss up to 20% of the school year or drop out completely because of social taboos and a lack of access to affordable menstrual hygiene management.
This increases their likelihood of early pregnancy and child marriage, has huge consequences on their education and the rest of their lives.
Plan trains school representatives and community health clubs to debunk myths and taboos around menstruation, engaging girls and boys in the process, and teaching the skills necessary to make their own reusable sanitary pads.
Every $25 provides access to menstrual hygiene management that secures a girl's education.
Support Mental Health
Around two million Australians live with anxiety, and around one million live with depression. Sadly, on average eight Australians take their lives every day.
Beyond Blue Support is available for all Australians to speak to a trained counselor at any time.
This service is experiencing increased demand during the COVID-19 pandemic as more people reach out due to the effects of social distancing, isolation and employment insecurity.
Our trained mental health professionals listen, provide advice and counseling, and point people in the right direction to receive the support they need.
Every $48 supports one phone call.
Provide Business Education
In Australia, single women over 50 are the fastest growing group to experience homelessness due to financial vulnerability and lack of affordable housing.
Barriers to mainstream employment and socio-economic inclusion are often due to disability, carer responsibilities and a lack of job opportunities - particularly in regional Australia.
Global Sisters supports women who are challenged to participate economically but are deeply motivated to be self-employed. Global Sisters business development support is long-term and equips women to launch and grow their own businesses. Being self-employed enables women to ‘stand tall’, creating a ripple effect of change in their families and communities.
Every $18 provides a day of business education to a sister.
To participate in creating change, simply engage with the I=Change pop up after completing your order. The full donation reaches the charity. No transaction or processing fees will be charged.
