This International Women’s Day, We Call on Mothers

0 Comments

 Dear Pepperlane community,

When I was asked to write a blog post in honor of International Women’s Day, I wasn’t sure what I could write to you that you wouldn’t have already heard before— so I decided to let the pressure off and simply imagine that you and I are sitting in my living room.

It’s cozy and the neighbors can hear our laughter. We’re having a wonderful evening: every mother in the room has amazing skills, the amount of talent in the room is unbelievable. We enjoy being together, we are connected.

This description might sound unreal, but when we come together there’s something very magical about US: I mean, women and mothers.

And in this way,  the living room becomes a metaphor for your own community. In every community, we have mothers with remarkable skills— skills that other mothers will appreciate so much. Recognizing this, we’re creating our network of independent, local services—by mothers, for mothers.

Step by step, I believe that we are building the new economy.

If we work together to make it happen, we can move mountains. We hold each other, and we let fresh possibilities enter our lives.

As a woman, caregiver, and mother, I know how much I hold for my children— but it’s very difficult to ask for support from someone else.

Pepperlane was born to help mothers come together and open doors to endless possibilities. We welcome mothers from all different background and around the world to step forward to offer their skills and share their creativity.

We call on mothers to seize the opportunity to make an income based on their own terms.

We call on mothers to buy services from other mothers who’ve just launched their own businesses. 

Show your support. Be a first customer.

We call on mothers to show up for one another.

We invite YOU to join us.

Yours,

Sharon Kan
