Recently here at MESHKI, we were honoured to reach 1 million followers on Instagram. While throwing the biggest party of the year was the initial thought, we’ve decided to opt out for a more meaningful celebration.
As a company started by two girls, MESHKI stands for #girlpower and it’s our passion to make a positive impact on women worldwide. Designing pieces that make her feel confident, bold and ready to conquer the world was the start; now we want to start a movement where empowering women is the new black.
Girls’ Education and Breast Cancer Awareness are topics close to our hearts, so we have designed two exclusive t-shirts, with the positive messages of empowerment and hope, with 100% of the profits going towards two very special charities we have partnered up with; One Girl & National Breast Cancer Foundation.
The collection includes two t-shirts that are simple in design, bold in aesthetic, and powerful in purpose.
100% of the profits from the pink t-shirt with the message of hope will go towards National Breast Cancer Foundation, and 100% of the profits from the black t-shirt with the message of empowerment will be donated to One Girl Charity.
You don’t have to buy a t-shirt to take part of this movement - you can also simply donate to the charity of your choice.
We’re proud to partner up with two special charities that empower and give hope to the girls and women in our global family.
Their missions are close to our hearts and hopefully yours once you get to know them a little better here.
An extraordinary, brave girl who refused to accept the hand she’d been dealt. Brenda had lost both her parents and was living in a tiny shack with her grandmother.
There was no money for ‘luxuries’ like school. They needed every cent just to cover their basic necessities.
Without an education, Brenda could see exactly where her life was headed. She’d seen girls like herself sold into marriage; or forced to sell themselves to men just to scrape together a living. She was determined that wouldn’t happened to her.
So Brenda decided to take matters into her own hands.
She had a letter from her principal that said she needed $40 for her school fees. $40? That’s the cost of a couple of movie tickets! But on the streets of Uganda? It was an impossibility. A crazy, hopeless idea destined to fail. For two days she was spat on, kicked, abused. Shoved out of the way. Nobody cared. Nobody wanted to help. Why would they? She was just one of literally hundreds of thousands of girls in exactly the same position.
Breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in Australia, with eight women dying from the disease every day. Incidence is on the rise – meaning, more mothers, sisters, daughters, wives, friends and families will be impacted.
That’s why we’re taking action. We are Australia’s leading national body funding game-changing breast cancer research with money raised entirely by the Australian public.
Our mission is simple: stop deaths from breast cancer. How? By identifying, funding and championing world-class research – research that will help us detect tumours earlier, improve treatment outcomes and ultimately – save lives.
We receive no government funding, so we can invest quickly in what works. What we do, would not be possible without the support and generosity of people like you.
