As women, we have all experienced (and greatly appreciate) the undeniable power of shopping. Whether online or in-store, shopping has been known to boost a gal’s mood. Some even say shopping has substantial therapeutic effects.

But this month shopping will take on a remarkable new super power—the power to literally save lives!
