Help out an important cause and pick up a red pashmina for that special someone this holiday season. This Peterborough-based initiative partners with Canadian Women for Women in Afghanistan, and proceeds from the sale of the red pashminas are directed to advancing education and educational opportunities for Afghan women and their families. To learn more about the Red Pashmina Campaign and how it empowers women there and locally, visit their website, Facebook or Twitter page. Pashminas can be purchased for $20 at Tango, Glow Maternity, The New Canadians Centre, YWCA, My Left Breast, The Benevolent Stranger, Joie de Vie and Sympathy for the Rebel.
