I absolutely love to educate! My involvement with Noonday enables me to education others about what poverty truly looks like and how these incredible artisans are working to pull themselves out! Here are a few great things to learn… Our purchasing power here in the USA enables these artisans to lift themselves out of poverty, to have access to medical care, child care, education and a living wage to care for their families with. These jobs enable mothers to care for and keep their children. In turn this can help decrease the 153 million orphans worldwide. Beautiful jewelry made from up-cycled artillery (shells from the conflict war, in farmers fields, melted down and mixed with metals) enable HIV+ women in Ethiopia to know that they have a future that is bright and hopeful. Our purchases enable families in Guatemala to use their phenomenal art of hand weaving to create gorgeous scarves for us to wear and be excited to tell others about. The necklace that I am wearing is enabling a small group of artists in Ecuador to save for their children to be fed and educated. Talk about paying it forward! My ten year old daughter's favorite purse was created by a woman in Rwanda who was able to go to sewing school on a scholarship and begin to sew for a living. You know what is the best part about that? When people ask her about it, she loves to tell people all about her purse. As an ambassador for the Noonday Collection, my favorite emails are the ones with letters from our artisans updating us on their families and how their lives are changing. They absolutely melt my heart.
Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.
I am honored that so many women, ask me to come to their homes and communities to educate their friends and family about the changes that can be made simply by choosing to purchase items from a company that knows the names and children's names of the artists making their pieces. Not only do I get to educate but I am also able to help families raise funds for adoptions as Noonday Collection will donate up to 20% of sales to adopting families. On top of that, I will personally donate another 10% of all sales. I hope that when you are considering a small treat for yourself, a statement necklace for that little black dress or a holiday gift for friends and family that you will consider purchasing from the Noonday Collection. You can find their incredible fall/winter line HERE.
