This is What a World Changer Looks Like...

A little over a year ago I was fortunate to join a team of women, women who work with a company called Noonday Collection.  You've heard me talk about Noonday before, you know my passion for it. Noonday's story rings with what my passions are. Noonday's heartbeat...

"At Noonday Collection, we believe every child belongs in a family .We advocate for the orphan by:
  • Providing jobs that create a pathway out of poverty for families. A stable income means a family is less likely to abandon their child.
  • Help families raise money for their own adoptions. We give 10% of trunk show sales directly to the adoptive family when they host a trunk show.
  • Aside from donating 10% towards qualified adoptive families, Noonday Collection also gives towards orphan care and prevention. 
  • The dream: Take YOU on a trip to visit artisans and visit orphans in their distress." -(taken from the Noonday website)
When you shop with Noonday, you are being a part of the solution, keeping children off the streets, literally providing families with jobs to keep them out of poverty, helping to end the cycle of oppression. Sending girls to college, keeping families together...keeping families together..stopping the orphan cycle..

I don't do anything when it comes to Noonday, I deliver the stories and YOU change the world by purchasing the pieces that go with the stories..

I want to show you what a world changer looks like..because I bet they look a lot like you! 

Here's Rachel, and her sister Becky, a sisterhood photography team, Rachel's (left) wearing the Angular earrings, supporting our Ugandan artisans. Becky (right) is wearing the Minted Necklace, and also the yellow beaded statement bracelet, both pieces spread the Uganda story 

Janice (left) and her daughter Ari are wearing two Noonday countries! The funky paper bead necklace and the minted necklace, both made in Uganda. Ari's also wearing the D'Orsay Bangle which supports artisans in India. 

Jennifer is wearing the Stamped Circle Bracelet in silver, made in India where slavery and oppression was once the only option for our artisans. 

Veronica is modeling the Beaded Statement Bracelet in blue made in Uganda, where the artisan team is growing because of these purchases! 

Elizabeth is wearing the Festival Necklace, made in Uganda by the group Noonday helped launch

Angie decked herself out in Noonday for the 4th of July, layering her Funky Paper Bead necklace and adding the bracelet too. While she celebrated her freedom she also knows that her purchases helped others keep theirs. 

Val is wearing the beaded statement in peach, a favorite by many. Each bead is rolled one by one by hand. Val is wearing their story. 

Lauren doubled up her Minted Necklace, made in Uganda.  Every time Lauren puts on her necklace she can know that she helping in keeping a families together and keeping children off the streets 

Aleah layered up in Noonday for a wedding, she's modeling the Kampala with Love necklace and the Zoe, both made in Uganda and both providing incomes for families without the opportunity before Noonday. 

Megan with her cute baby belly is modeling the Stamped Circle earrings handmade by  our artisan groups in India that help low-income artisans move towards economic self-sufficiency.

So next time you think you can't do anything...remember you can! 

(ps there are SO many more women who's pictures should be up here, but it was hard to stalk facebook and instagram ;) Don't worry, there will be more world changers 

"When you satisfy the needs of the oppressed, your night will shine like the noonday" Is. 58:10

Keep changing the world y'all!
