I came across this great online shop today: a non-profit organization helping women in poverty stricken areas around the world start art and craft-based businesses for themselves. It is called "Nest." The women are provided with micro loans where they then take the funds and obtain all the supplies they need to start their business. They then sell their goods on Nest to pay off the loans...
There are also other designers and artists who sell their wares and 25% of the proceeds go back to help with the funding for this great endeavor. The products are a great range of giftable items for the home and for self.
When you make a purchase, you are also helping women around the world. A pretty great thing, huh?
