I’m so excited about today’s post! As we move into the holiday season, November tends to be a time of reflection and thankfulness for most, so we thought it fitting to publish some more “Give Back” posts this week! I looove our “Give Back” posts – they’re my favorite!! And this one is no exception. This time, I’m featuring Noonday Collection – a fantastic accessories & home goods company that “partner[s] with artisans in the developing world, empowering them to grow sustainable businesses. By creating a marketplace for their goods, [they] create dignified jobs at living wages” (quote via Noonday). Noonday also provides no interest loans, scholarship programs, and emergency assistance for those in need, as well as supports adoption by helping with the costs of placing children in forever families. In short, this company is Amazing, and so are the goods they sell via the artisans that they support. See the win-win circle there?
My lovely friend, Amber Cok, is a Noonday Ambassador, and a mama of four precious little ones – two of whom she and her husband have chosen to adopt.
She is a beautiful person with a beautiful soul, and I feel honored to share with you a little about what she and Noonday does, on a daily basis. In Amber’s own words, “Wear adorable accessories, connect with people, help empower women, fight poverty, and support adoption? Yes please!!!”
Could not have said it better.
So, here is my rustic-ish outfit post, entirely inspired by my Noonday Collection bracelets (that I’m now obsessed with).
