Who We Are
We’re Showerella. A party supplies company that believes in helping girls. We make party products for celebrating life chapters like having a baby, getting married or even turning 30. A portion of every product sold goes to projects that tackle gender-biased practices such as child marriage. By tackling practices that prevent girls from having access to education, we are helping the next generation of women reach their full potential.
Why Showerella Exists
The world has evolved greatly and women have more opportunities than ever before. Yet too many gender-biased practices still exist today that are holding girls back. Child marriage is such a practice. It girls out of school to be sold as brides and robs them of an education.
Like many entrepreneurs before us, we believe that design and commerce can be used as a force for good. And so we built Showerella. A company for women, by women.
The story of the Showerella you see today started with a phone call.
I was living in Japan at the time and loving it. I kept in touch with friends and family. Often sending them random photos of my adventures in Tokyo and around Asia.
One day, a friend from university call me to chat. She told me her sister had got married and was expecting her first child. I had just returned from a Japanese cooking class so my first thought was “oh, that’s wonderful news! we can host a sushi-themed baby shower” but then she started sobbing. It turns out her sister was only 14.
That phone call changed everything. I did some research and discovered that 41,000 girls a day are victims of child marriage. I knew I had to do something to help.
And so I designed Showerella, a social venture that celebrates new chapters – one person to another™. Showerella operates as a ‘give-back’ party company that distributes a portion of every purchase to projects that tackle child marriage, FGM and gender-biased practices that harm girls.
So as you celebrate a new chapter with your friends & family, you help a girl enter her own new chapter of happiness and empowerment.
How it Works
We design & make. You buy & celebrate.
We partner with NGOs to distribute a portion of your purchase to help girls escape unfair hardship like Child Marriage and FGM. It’s a simple idea. But makes a big difference.
