Who Likes to Party (with a purpose)?

by Emily Betzler May 15, 2014

I love using the power of my purchases to change someone's life. However, I have always wanted to play a more hands on role in the process. Today, I discovered that role through Sole Hope parties!


Sure, you can buy a pair of shoes that in turn gives a pair to someone in need; but how cool would it be to gather with your friends and make the shoes yourself? You can do just that with Sole Hope Shoe Parties. Sole Hope has developed 4 easy steps to re-purpose old pairs of jeans into shoes for African children:
  1. Collect your forgotten/unwanted jeans (I have at LEAST 5 pairs).
  2. Cut out the shoe patterns according to the Sole Hope party book.
  3. Trace the pattern onto old jeans and cut!
  4. Mail the patterns to Sole Hope


Easy as 1,2,3, 4 :)!

You get to spend quality time with your friends while also making a difference:

  • Every piece of fabric you cut will  protect a child's feet from jigger infestations.
  • Women in Uganda will be provided with a job - sewing together each pair of shoes!
  • Family’s lives will be changed. The employment and training will give each woman with pride in her skill and workmanship and provide income to care for her family.

Let's join together and party with a purpose!

Not that into parties? No problem, you can support Sole Hope by buying products from their store here.   We have more party ideas coming, subscribe below so you don't miss them!

Our Favorite Giveback, Ethical, Small Shop Baby Brands
Our Favorite Giveback, Ethical, Small Shop Baby Brands

by Emily Betzler July 14, 2019

 As you know, we are in full-on BABY mode over here (and loving every minute of it)!

It seems like the baby game has changed quite a bit since our last baby- there are so many new ethical, small shop, sustainable and giveback brands and products that we've begun to fall in love with! While we still turn to 2nd hand/hand-me-down items as our first resort for finding items for our kids - (it is most economical and sustainable), it has been encouraging and fun to see the myriad of new options! We've loved trying out and supporting some of these brands as we shop with an impact, and are excited to share our recommendations with you! 

Here are our favorite ethical, small shop, sustainable giveback baby brands - and the products we have been using and loving in our everyday life!
