Happy International Women's Day!
While it's quite typcial for us to have fun with the topic of the day, we decided to come out here and have a more serious discussion. Believe it or not, we here at CrazyDog T-shirts take things like International Women's Day fairly seriously. Now, the cynical out there would think that it's just because we like to design and sell funny t-shirts for women, but that really doesn't play a part in it. Yes we love creating original designs for girls of all ages, but at the end of the day, we realize just how important it is to run an inclusive, accepting, and fair workplace.
It's not about favoring one group of people over the other, and it's not about trying to shamelessly bolster someone up. It's about giving the opportunity to everyone. We know that even in a place like Rochester, New York, it can still be difficult for women to find a job that will treat them with respect, pay a fair wage, and provide an environment free of harrassment. Here at CrazyDog, that's something we like to think that we conquered long ago.
Whether it's on the print floor, the art department, the warehouse, or here in the front offices, we all work together as a team to put out the highest quality products possible. Some companies ignore their customers at the expense of their employees. Others run their workers into the ground in an attempt to give their customers the world. We try to find an even mixture. As much as we want to make our customers laugh, we want to provide every single one of our employees with a fun and satisfying place to work.
It's also why we have worked so hard over the last year to put out the highest quality products for women all across the globe. Whether someone wants a funny t-shirt, or they want a high quality maternity shirt, we have spent oodles of time putting together unique designs on super soft material, all the while going the extra mile to keep things affordable. Not everyone who needs a maternity shirt, or wants to buy a gift for someone special, has a ton of extra money to go around. We know because so many of us have been there, and it's important for us to make sure we put out products that everyone can afford to enjoy.
One major way that people are trying ot make a different on International Women's Day is to take the #PledgeForParity. For those of you playing the home game, parity is defined as the condition or state of being completely equal, especially when it comes to matters of pay and status. If you haven't heard about it yet, you should check it out by clicking here. We like to think of it as an important goal that people across the world should be putting serious energy into, rather than disregarding it like so many other hashtags.
This is one of the best causes that we can think to support, and we've supported a lot. While everyone who works here at CrazyDog T-shirts understands how fortunate they are, we also understand that there are millions of women across the country and around the world that have not benefitted from equality and opportunity. Hopefully by keeping this in mind and spreading the word, we'll all be one step closer to solving a problem that has lingered in our society for far too long.
Don't worry folks, we'll get back to funny t-shirts and jokes tomorrow! Thanks for taking the time to read our thoughts. If you liked what you read, feel free to spread it around!
