It seems like one person can accomplish so very little.
However, together, our single drops form an ocean!
What happened in August 2015 at Redemption Market?
We sent $306 to Aid Through Trade ensuring fair sustainable wages to women in Nepal. You did this by purchasing a bracelet.
We sent $109 to Matr Boomie, ethically employing local artisans in India. It was that ring you bought.
We sent $203 to Kahiniwalla, by purchasing baby toys that allow women in Bangladesh to work from home and stay out of the garment factories.
We sent $538 to Sak Saum, giving Cambodian victims of trafficking a new start. That was the handbag you bought yourself as a special treat.
We started a new relationship with The Tote Project, helping survivors of trafficking both in India and the United States. $237. Thank you!
There was also the $181 supporting the local non-profit Community Food Connections, benefiting sustainable food systems. You came to the Saturday morning farmer's market and stopped by our booth.
Gilbert, Chandler, Phoenix, and the lovely state of Arizona benefited from having us as a local business, receiving our tax dollars.
This was one month, in the heat of summer, with a one-woman business, during the slowest month of the year.
I'm pretty sure we can top these numbers next month. Are you in?
