WOMEN SUPPORTING WOMEN



With the drop of my new self defence keychains I saw an opportunity to do my part within the community to help where it was needed, and what better way to do that then to donate a portion of all proceeds from these new keychains to a local women’s charity?


Especially nowadays women have to stick together and support each other because sometimes all we have is each other.


Forget walking alone at night, now it’s almost equally as dangerous to walk alone during the day in 2021, and that’s a problem that we must draw more attention to.


Easy to use and completely customizable, these self defence keychains not only will help keep you safe, but also double as a cute accessory - hang it on your keys, your purse, or whatever you prefer! Now you no longer have to walk with your keys in between your fingers, besides, can you really grip a set of keys well enough to land a solid punch incase of an assault?



Here’s a little bit of information about the charity and the women you’ll be supporting when you purchase a self defence keychain from my store :
