BIOMARIN WOMEN'S LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT EMPLOYEE RESOURCE GROUP SUPPORTS WOMEN'S HISTORY MONTH

Our goal is to raise $5,000 in gift cards donations for Dress for Success San Francisco/San Jose.  As of 3/26, we surpassed our goal and have raised $5,504/$5,000!

BioMarin Women’s Leadership Development ERG seeks to empower and engage women in our organization to work towards realizing their full potential through career development, growth, and retention.

We have taken the pledge to empower women this Women’s History Month by highlighting  the “SHEros Among Us” and supporting women in the Bay Area through our partnership with Dress for Success San Francisco/San Jose.

Please join us not only to celebrate women but to take action by donating a gift card in the amount you choose. With your help we can reach our goal of $5,000 to help women throughout the Bay Area.

EXECUTIVE PLEDGE - JESS SWAN

My name is Jess Swann, and I’m the Vice President of the Hemophilia Commercial Business Unit, and an Executive Sponsor of the BioMarin Women’s Leadership Development (BWLD) employee resource group.  Empowering, elevating and mentoring women is something I’m passionate about, which is why I am proud to donate an hour of my pay in gift card donations to support a cause with a mission closely aligned to the objectives of the BWLD. 


The  “Your Hour, Her Power” challenge benefits Dress for Success, an international non-profit organization whose mission is to empower women to achieve economic independence by providing a network of support, professional attire and development tools to help women thrive in work and life.  When a woman has access to opportunities that can change her life for the better, she becomes powerful beyond measure.


By giving just one hour of your pay (or an amount you are comfortable giving) in gift card donations, you can support a woman in achieving financial independence and upward mobility today.

YOUR HOUR, HER POWER

Dress for Success’ annual Women's History Month and International Women's Day campaign, Your Hour, Her Power®, is inspired by the belief that when a woman has access to opportunities that can change her life for the better, she becomes powerful beyond measure.

Marian Wright Edelman’s words, “you cannot be what you cannot see,” have never rung truer than now as women face the first female recession due to the COVID-19 pandemic.


By giving the equivalent of just one hour of your pay, you not only give a Dress for Success woman access to programs, services, and tools that will help her achieve economic advancement, but you also join us in celebrating female leaders for the pivotal role they play in driving business and economic gains, and social and cultural change.

 

FAQ

Why an Amazon Wishlist?

We created an Amazon Wishlist to make the donation process as simple as possible.

If you would prefer to purchase a gift card elsewhere, please mail it to Dress for Success San Francisco, 500 Sutter, Suite 218, San Francisco, CA 94102.


Why is "Erin Badillo" the gift registry address? 

Erin Badillo is the Executive Director for Dress for Success San Francisco/San Jose and Amazon only allows gift cards to be added to an individual's wish list. Therefore, Erin created this for BWLD. 

Amazon will ship the Gift Cards purchased on this list directly to Dress for Success San Francisco. 


Are Gift Cards Tax Deductible?

Gift Card donations are NOT deductible as cash. They are deductible as an in-kind donation.
