I received this beautiful scarf as a Christmas gift! I couldn’t wait to share with you! It’s from fashionABLE and I plan to buy these products when I want to give a gift too. I was all over their site and learned this: A fashionABLE product creates sustainable businesses for women in Africa. They are committed to long-term solutions to fighting poverty, and their main focus is creating opportunities for vulnerable women. That means that your purchase creates jobs, so that the women are not dependent upon charity, but instead are a vital part of a developing economy.
Their strategy is a win-win. fashionABLE works with women to help them start small business cooperatives, and they partner with and require manufacturers to also employ women with fair wages and fair hiring practices. I clicked through some of the women’s stories and it was truly inspiring. Obviously, I love fashion and shopping! And when I hear about companies doing good and giving back, I’m all over it!
Please take the time to visit fashionABLE and let me know if you end up picking anything up. I bet you will pick up a little inspiration!
