Millions of people engaged and inspired by women's empowerment goodwill

Here's a letter to the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS) who has been a Charity of Choice for International Women's Day since 2007. Learn more about their incredible work representing 10 million girls and young women across 152 countries and perhaps consider a generous donation to support their impactful work addressing issues from climate change to period poverty to gender based violence.

Important support for women's empowerment

Royal Mail's special moment-related postmarking provides an important opportunity to amplify key messsages, mobilize positive action, and engage communities.

Not only will women appreciate the organization's support in reinforcing equality, but the #IWD2021 #ChoooseToChallenge postmarking is relevant to all genders inviting people to courageously step forward and call out stereotyping, bias and discrimination. 

More recently, throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, the Royal Mail played its part in reminding and encouraging communities to take caution i order to protect the National Heath System (NHS).
