Meghan Markle keeps to a female empowerment theme for "Giving Tuesday" 2022
In America the Thanksgiving Thursday holiday is followed by the shopping frenzy that is Black Friday and Cyber Monday and since 2012 / 2013 a global movement to support non-profits called Giving Tuesday. Ahead of Giving Tuesday 2022 Meghan has teamed up with the eco-friendly lifestyle brand Cuyana, that will see 500 of their Classic Structured Tote Bags donated to the UK Charity Smart Works UK, the non-profit where Meghan remains Patron.
Cuyana (which means “to love” in Quechua) is a women-built, heritage-led company selling life-style goods such as bags and clothing and with sustainability at the heart of what they do. They operate under the ethos of offering fewer but better quality collections, that are designed to last. The company also sells used products, giving a second or third life to their pieces.
In a press release issued by Cuyana the company said that they were thrilled to partner with Meghan and Smart Works UK, saying that giving back has always been at the heart of their organization.
