International Women's Day on 8 March is a fab excuse to celebrate girl power around the world. Of course, one of the most meaningful ways to cheer the gals is by donating to a charity that supports women.
It's also no secret that we love any excuse to do a little online shopping over here at Finder Style, so with that in mind, we've rounded up some of our fave brands that are partnering with good causes. What more could you want? You can show your support while you shop this IWD.
CASETiFY x Malala FundCASETiFY will be donating 100% of profits from its gorge new Her Impact Matters Collection to the Malala Fund. This non-profit organisation founded in the name of the youngest Nobel Peace Prize laureate Malala Yousafzai advocates for resources and policy changes to give all girls a secondary education, so this is a worthy cause indeed.
Plus, emblazoned with slogans like "Women's Rights Are Human Rights!", "Feminist" and "Misogyny Bores Me", this CASETiFY range is seriously a mood all year round. It includes a range of accessories for Apple and Android products, so you can show your support no matter what your device of choice.

Bec & Bridge x One Girl
Australian designer Bec & Bridge proudly supports "One Girl", a non-profit organisation that works to provide education for girls in Sierra Leone and Uganda. For every Bec & Bridge item purchased online and in stores today, it's donating a month's worth of lunch and school supplies to a girl in the areas through the One Girl partnership. Outside of IWD, Bec & Bridge's contributions have supplied a year's worth of education for 322 One Girl scholars, which is pretty bloody brilliant if you ask us.
Quay x Ashley Graham x Girls Inc.
Aussie sunnies brand Quay Australia has partnered with supermodel, mama bear, entrepreneur and ABSOLUTE boss babe Ashley Graham for a "Confidence Is Quay" campaign this IWD. The campaign celebrates inclusivity, body positivity and strong women. Quay is also donating $100,000 to Girls Inc., which is a non-profit that provides young girls with safe spaces, programs and resources to help them succeed. We love to see it!
MIMCO x Our Watch
On 8 March, MIMCO is donating 100% of its profits to "Our Watch", a not-for-profit organisation and leader in the prevention of violence against women and their children. That means that every dollar you spend on International Women's Day will go towards research, tools and resources to help put an end to violence against women in Australia. Sounds like a good reason to invest in a new purse to me.
Afterpay x Global Sisters
As if we couldn't crush on Afterpay any more? The buy now pay later service has teamed up with Global Sisters, an Aussie not-for-profit to support women experiencing barriers to traditional work. For IWD, Afterpay is running an "add $1" at the checkout campaign for IWD and the funds raised will go to Global Sisters.
Mejuri x Mejuri Empowerment Fund
Just in time for the cooler months, Mejuri is donating 100% of proceeds from this super cute Golden crew sweatshirt to the Mejuri Empowerment Fund. The jewellery brand launched this fund in June 2020 to empower under-represented women and non-binary people around the world.

In case you're not familiar with its fab work, Dress For Success is a global not-for-profit organisation that provides vulnerable women with support, tools and clothes to help them get back on track and back to work. Work! Indeed.
L'Occitane x Burkina Faso NGOsL'Occitane has dropped a limited edition "In Solidarity" hand cream for IWD. 100% of the proceeds will be donated to NGO projects that promote women's leadership in Burkina Faso in West Africa.
