What She Wore Wednesday - Give with IMPACT

by Emily Betzler November 13, 2013

For today's What She Wore Wednesday post I have the honor of featuring my dear friend Katie Medill. Talk about having an IMPACT,  Katie not only works all day imparting love, knowledge and wisdom to 7th graders, she does it while looking amazing and positively impacting the world with her fashion choices! She was kind enough to let me sneak into her classroom and get a few shots of her in action.

Grading papers never looked so good!  Katie's watch not only looks good but also helps set people free from slavery and empowers them for a different future! Purchasing this watch (or any other product) from Sak Saum enables them to fulfill their mission of rescuing, rehabilitating, transforming, and vulnerable and exploited men and women.

Katie's bracelet and necklace are handmade by women in Uganda working for 31Bits.  31Bits is an innovative business that is employing and providing educational opportunities for women in Uganda. You can read more about them here.

All of these products and more will be available at the Give with IMPACT Holiday Gift Market. See you there!Give with Impact2

I have the best friends ever. Working on the Give with IMPACT Gift Market has been such a great reminder of how lucky I am to be surrounded by such amazing, inspiring, passionate woman. Thank you, Katie, for all the impacts your are making!

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!
