While it may have started as a cheesy idea from a television program, we think it's a wonderful way to acknowledge the pivotal role that female friendships play in our lives.

For women, some of the most memorable relationships are the friendships that are formed between them. These friendships make for a more connected community and create a support system for women to share common experiences, challenges, and needs. 

So, in the interest of women supporting women, grab your girlfriends and join in the fun! Plan a date night, send a text, write a card, bake them a cake, or buy them a bunch of their favourite flowers.
