When it comes to helping out in our communities near and far, we're moved by the stories behind each of our partners—the people and nonprofits whose individual missions vary, but who all work to improve the quality of life for our planet. We strategically choose many of the brands we carry not only for their quality and aesthetic value, but also because of how they give back. Whether it be Miriam Designs who employs women recovering from addiction, Nisolo who provides access to the global marketplace for talented shoemakers in Peru, or the Giving Keys who provide jobs to those transitioning out of homelessness we rally behind the idea of "fashion for good".
One of our main partnerships for giving back is with One Life International. We give 10% of every purchase to this non-profit who partners with communities in India to act against poverty through a holistic care model. This model focuses on the realization that a child with clean water, but no food can't survive and a single mother with healthcare, but no job training can't provide for her family. Everything works together and effects one another. From clean water to healthcare and education to business development, they use a holistic model to work with entire communities to create environments of sustainable change that give them the tools to rise out of poverty. Having traveled to India to work with this organization herself, founder Kimberly Parker witnessed first hand the positive impact of this organization and its ability to change lives. Because of you, we've already been able to make a huge impact on these communities through each of your purchases!
