Santa is a Woman: You Helped 7,000 Women in Need!

Team Peanut3 months ago2 min read

When we launched our Santa is a Woman campaign in November, we didn’t expect such an overwhelming response.

Peanut’s Santa is a Woman

Over 7,000 of you reached out to support women in need over the holidays, to reassure them that they’re not alone. We can’t thank you enough - these acts of kindness mean the world to us and to the women you’ve helped.

For anyone that missed it, our Santa is a Woman initiative encouraged our community to come together at a time when many women needed it most. After matching with Santa on Peanut, we sent out empty boxes, our community filled them with necessities, and returned them to charity and shelters that support women living in poverty. Here’s what our community had to say. ⬇️

“I truly believe that this could be the most important gift I wrap this year”

“So pleased to have taken part. A great initiative and I hope my box puts a smile on someone’s face”

“2020 has been hard and I’m excited to be able to help make someone’s holiday magical.”

It was truly amazing to see so many women come together. And we weren’t the alone in thinking that. One of the charities who received your Santa is a Woman boxes, Stripey Stork, told us they were blown away by your kind and generous donations.

“We often hear that when family finances become tight, women are the first to go without. 2020 was a difficult year and so many more families have struggled financially, so it’s lovely to be able to pass on these boxes of goodies for women.”

Thank you. None of this would’ve been possible without you.
