Australian lingerie company Honey Birdette planning big expansion in U.S. and U.K.

The Australian luxury lingerie company, Honey Birdette, may only have been in existence since 20016, but it has not stopped them from expanding quickly.

In just that short time, Honey Birdette already has 55 stores in Australia and three in the United Kingdom, as well as a website whose sales are growing rapidly. So much so, Honey Birdette has just launched an American version of the site as sales of their lingerie are taking off in the U.S.

Expansion plans in the U.S. and U.K. are not stopping with just a website and a couple of shops, however. In fact, Honey Birdette is planning to open 37 more stores in the U.K. between now and the end of 2018, and is also looking at retail space in the U.S.

If that was not enough, Europe is also being looked at, with planned openings in major European cities coming up in the next couple of years.

Honey Birdette’s U.S. website is also going well as American customers now realize they can order briefs, bras and bedroom toys easily, and have their packages mailed to them in just a couple of days.

Honey Birdette was founded in 20016 after entrepreneur Eloise Monaghan sat down with a friend one night over drinks, and both women bemoaned the lack of luxury underwear stores in Australia.

Not one to just sit around and complain, however, Monaghan decided to solve that problem herself and Honey Birdette was born soon after.

Now they sell not only the lingerie Monaghan and her friend wanted, but also a line of massage candles, as well as S&M pieces like leather crops, whips, collars and cuffs.

Everything is designed in house, and the entire company is backed by BBRC, the private investment firm that has been backing Australian retail business ventures for more than 25 years.

Avaaz is a Progressive Voice in a Changing World.

Avaaz means “voice” in many Indo European languages.

But the organization Avaaz, the most powerful online activist network in the world, is a “voice” which cannot be silenced in the face of injustice, discrimination, and corruption.

With an audience of nearly 45 million, the progressive activist group shapes opinion on climate change, government corruption, poverty, racism and other regional and national issues. They have a global outreach but the organization is based in New York and effectively gathers like-minded participants to effect change.

The organization makes an impact through petitions, demonstrations, and funding independent press.

After the election of Donald Trump, Avaaz gathered more than 4.5 million signature on a petition in the form of a letter to the newly elected president.

“The world rejects your fear, hate-mongering, and bigotry. We reject your support for torture, your calls for murdering civilians, and your general encouragement of violence,” read the letter.

Avaaz continues its battle on the front lines in the resistance to the election of President Trump.

Climate change awareness is also a call to action. The activist group supports and promotes the efforts of the 21 students who have filed a lawsuit against the federal government for not educating and protecting its citizens.

Another campaign which Avaaz draws attention to is the use of pregnant horse blood. This global market often times kills horses and their foals as their blood is used to make hormone for pigs to reproduce more quickly.

Rickin Patel is a co-founder and President of the organization. The Harvard-educated political scientist has global experience in election monitoring, mediation, and addressing political corruption. His work at MoveOn.org taught him the power of using online tools for activism.

The group has been able to raise over $20 million in online donation and has stopped taking donations from foundations and corporations since 2009.
