THE AUCTION IS NOW CLOSED
My friend Paige Knudsen, with her huge heart and quiet wisdom donated this beautiful bracelet with so much significance. You see, Paige represents The Noonday Collection. When I read this on their website I knew they were a program that would understand what we are doing in Tusubira Village~
From their website:
"Noonday Collection's mission is to create economic opportunity for the vulnerable. We partner with artisans in the developing world, empowering them to grow sustainable businesses. By creating a marketplace for their goods, we create dignified jobs at living wages. This allows our artisans to earn more in order to support their families. We also offer no interest loans and make advance payments on orders. This way we are able to shoulder the costs of materials and build a lasting relationship based on trust. We offer scholarship programs and emergency assistance. Noonday Collection also donates a portion of sales from adoption trunk shows to place orphans in forever families.
Noonday Collection is not a charity and we do not believe that providing a hand out is a sustainable long-term solution to poverty. We aim to be a sustainable business that gives women across the United States a way to make a lasting difference in the fight against poverty and injustice. This is what makes this movement so special."
Paige donated this bracelet because she knows first-hand what it means to empower people. She knows that every one of us can make a difference.
