As a thank you, we donate 15% of the sales back to them and share the local cases mission through our community. Help women here by helping women there.

What inspired you to launch your business idea?
It started with three sisters and a best friend.
Two years ago, Lupiariello bought her mother a fair trade necklace from Guatemala, and experienced a connection to the woman who had made the beautiful piece. During the same year, Cassi Baker bought Vicki Miller a fair trade bracelet from Ghana. We thought about how much women liked to help women and wear/buy something that has a story. WE thought about how we could strengthen the connection by women all around the world. What if we gave the profits to a local womens cause helping a women here and there.
The concept was born.

What problem does your business or organization solve?
Everyday women around the world are forced into marriage, childhood prostitution, and are born into poverty.They have few options because they are trapped by their culture, status and suppressive life situations.Their avenues for income are often insufficient and socially unacceptable.

Everyday women here in the states struggle too. They are more likely to live in poverty than men, and are often left alone to raise children with less opportunites and less paying jobs.

The amazing thing is that when given the opportunity, a woman can make positive change for her family – for her community. Societies thrive when women are empowered. Communities grow when women are protected and safe.

Because women are caregivers. They often put the needs of others before themselves.

anything is possible.

No matter where she lives.
