Event: Apolis Black Friday Improve Lives 2018

On Black Friday, November 23rd, 2018, Apolis advocates help raise $10,000 USD to buy a new generator for the Bangladeshi co-op which makes the market bag. This doesn’t just help the actual female artisans being employed — it also benefits their families and the surrounding community.
