This year I have a solution for all of the grown up women in my life - FashionABLE .
FashionABLE is a non profit that works with impoverished women in Africa, who - through various circumstances have been forced into desperate circumstances, usually commercial sex work. The program pulls women out of despair, teaches them a trade and gives them hope for a new life.
Here is a quote from their website:
Your purchase of a fashionABLE scarf creates sustainable business for women in Africa. Our commitment as a non-profit is to the development of people — fashionABLE works with women who have been exploited due to the effects of poverty. So, when you purchase a scarf you are providing jobs, and then we send the net profits back to holistically rehabilitate more women. This is the beauty of non-profit….
Scarves provide jobs, profits provide restoration.
This is organization is truly a non-profit - meaning all proceeds from the sales go back into helping women create sustainable business for themselves. It pulls women out of the nightmare of commercial sex work, into the empowering role of providing for themselves and their families with the proceeds from the beautiful work they create.
|Each scarf comes with a personally signed tag from the woman who created it.|
Yes, it's a little early to be putting this on your radar for Christmas, but I wanted to give you time to spread the word. The scarves are beautiful, affordable, and you can really feel good about a purchase that HELPS WOMEN.
