Everyone has a story to tell. This Holiday Season, we’re giving our platform over to women whose stories inspire us and supporting the causes that inspire them.
We are proud to support these women and the causes they believe in, especially during this season of giving. In that spirit, SKIMS has made individual donations in their names to the charities of their choosing.
We hope this, in turn, inspires others to donate their time or money this season to supporting those in need.
