Giveaway for a Cause

We will be putting power behind our purchase this month by giving away $100 to Sevenly, $100 to FashionABLE and $100 to Noonday Collection. We hope that you will not only enter the giveaway, but that you will also visit these sites and consider making purchases to support the causes.


Sevenly

Sevenly was created in June of 2011 and has a very unique concept. Each week, they have a Cause Campaign where customers purchase products and $7 of each sale is given toward the cause. This is amazing to watch. At the top of their site, you can see their weekly goals - not just monetarily but socially as well. This means that you can use your social media influence to help raise awareness even if you aren't able to give monetarily each week.

FashionABLE

FashionABLE is also a company that supports women around the world. The fashionABLE mission is to create sustainable business for Africans so they aren't dependent upon charity, but instead earn the dignity of a job. They are focused on long term solutions to fight poverty and investing in women. Through your purchase of a scarf, you are ABLE to provide an opportunity and a women is ABLE to have a choice.

Noonday Collection

Noonday Collection has a wide variety of jewelry, accessories, home items and gifts that are hand crafted by Artisans all around the world. Each artisan is paid a fair and competitive wage for their skilled craft thus giving them life-altering opportunities. Because Noonday practices Fair Trade guidelines, your purchases enable them to earn more than they would in another job thus enabling them to put their children in school, buy chickens or expand their business in their local community. When you host a trunk show, 10% of profits can go towards raising funds for a friends adoption. Noonday also gives some of its profits to help place orphans in families.

  24. I really like Noonday - Adoption can be so expensive, but kids need a loving permanent home. Have you been following the story of Davion Only, the 15 year old who went to a Florida church to ask someone to adopt him? It's heartbreaking.
