Plans are well under way for our next big project - CHRISTMAS 2019.
We have requests totaling just over 1500 FREE Smile Gifts for vulnerable women in the UK and another 40 Smile Gifts for widows in Nigeria. It will be our biggest project yet but we welcome the challenge and we hope that you can be a part of it.
Our 2018 gift was a unique one - a journal, purposefully created by our founder, Amanda. This journal was very well received and the feedback has been amazing. For 2019, we are planning on giving much needed essentials - toiletries. Our aim with Smile Gifts is to meet the needs of vulnerable women and place value and dignity in them.
We are also going to do our Christmas Babies Smile Gifts - This project is focused on giving gifts to the babies in one of the UK Prisons.

SMILE GIFTS is our free gift giving service for vulnerable women. We know that a gift is any woman's best friend, but there are many women who do not receive any gifts even on special occasions. In addition, there are many women who, due to unfortunate circumstances, cannot afford to treat themselves.
With Smile Gifts our aim is simply to bring hope and joy to these precious vulnerable women who reside in shelters, refuges, prisons and those that are homeless.
This free gifting service is at the core of everything we do at 'Empower A Woman'. It is our unique purpose; it is who we are! We believe that when we give a woman a reason to smile, it gives her a reason to keep going, to keep trying and to want to be her best self. A simple gift can be the catalyst that sparks a change in a woman's life.
Here at Empower A Woman, we want to make a difference in the lives of these vulnerable women and give them a gift to make them SMILE. We partner with various organisations that work with vulnerable women to provide SMILE GIFTS for celebrated seasons like Christmas, Valentines Day, Mothers Day, Easter and Birthdays too.
