Get Together and support women worldwide

Join us to celebrate International Women's Day on 8 March 2013 and transform the lives of women living in poverty around the world.

Thousands of people all over the UK will be getting together with friends, colleagues and loved ones to do what they love doing - while raising money for Oxfam.

Will you join them? You could host a film night at home, a bake-off at work or an exercise class in your community. Whatever you love to do, do it for women worldwide.

What's it all for?

Domestic violence. Discrimination. Lack of education. These are just some of the reasons why millions of women around the world are living in poverty.

Women often have fewer resources, fewer rights, and fewer opportunities to make life-shaping decisions than men. And when emergencies strike, they're the worst affected.

We support women to claim their rights and make decisions that affect their lives. We empower and equip them with the resources they need to work their way out of poverty - transforming entire communities.

Start planning your Oxfam Get Together today:

What will you do?

  • At home - host a clothes swap, dinner party or pamper night
  • At work - challenge colleagues to a bake-off or arrange a team day out
  • In your community - hold a pub quiz, art class or coffee morning
  • Out and about - organise a meal with friends at your favourite restaurant

 Register now for your free fundraising pack and we'll send you posters, balloons, coasters and bunting. www.oxfam.org.uk/gettogether
