Plan now for RED BAG DAY!

18th FEBRUARY 2011

An early reminder as many clubs do not have a business meeting  in December or January.

This event is a National event and is part of the Aims & Policies of BPW

A great opportunity for publicity for your club.

  • Get coverage in the media.
  • Sell the bags for a profit- minimum cost $3 per bag (plus courier/postal charges)  Each club can add an additional charge if they wish to use this as part of their own fundraising event.
  • Highlight the lack of equal pay. Equal pay for women can raise family income which  means  more money to spend on food, housing & child care.  Single mothers & working families lose thousands of dollars annually to the wage gap.

To order Red Bags contact Colleen Brooker-

I urge all clubs to participate in this project.
