Don Of All Trades Celebrates International Women’s Day

 

Don Of All Trades Celebrates International Women's Day

International Women’s Day is an annual celebration on March 8 of every year showing respect, honor and appreciation towards women across the world. It is also a recognition of the economic, political and social achievements that women have fought for over the years.

Quick History of International Women’s Day

This celebrates the accomplishments (usually overlooked) of women as well as recognizing their achievements and the struggles that they have gone through.

The first International Women’s Day was celebrated in 1909 to honor to 1908 garment women’s strike in New York. The women were protesting their horrific working conditions.

 

On Saturday March 5, 2016  Don Of All Trades Professional Home Maintenance Services  not only  wanted  to tell these women  why they  are so important, but to thank them for being there for us and for doing the great things that they do. We held an International Women’s Day Celebration luncheon in their honor. We are so happy how this event turned out that we are already planning for next year’s International Women’s Day Luncheon! We hope that  everyone who attended enjoyed this event as much as we did.

Here’s how our  wonderful afternoon unfolded below.

We arrived early to get the tables set up for our International Women’s Day Lunch in honor of some very special women.

After all of the hard work that went into preparing for this event, the BIG DAY was finally HERE  and we were getting excited and anxious for our guests to arrive.

Lots of tears shed and hugs given today during our speech taking the time to specifically acknowledge and thank each of these very special women for their contributions, support and sacrifices they have made in our lives, in their own and society.

This was a “caught off guard moment”  when Lisa the Events Coordinator at Herizon House presented us with this Certificate of Appreciation awarded to our Helping Hands Building Trees of  Hope Project. It was a very proud and humbling moment.

Update-Helping Hands Tree’s of Hope Project-Don of All Trades

Over the past 18 month we have been going through some big changes. We’ve been working incredibly hard behind the scenes but we know you haven’t been really been able to see the benefits of those changes yet.

Below is just one of the important commitments we’ve been working on and will continue to work on in 2016.

At Don Of All Trades Professional Home Maintenance Services, we believe it’s important to give back to the community. We came up with an idea and created the Helping Hands Building Trees of Hope Program benefiting a local women’s shelter in Durham Region.

Our goal in 2015 was to complete our first tree by the end of  December, with Helping Hands  from clients, friends, family and local businesses who donated items from our wish list which were given directly to the women and children in the shelter.

We are extremely happy to announce that we succeeded in reaching our goal!
