Do you ever feel like you want to make a difference in the world, but don’t know how in between playdates, diapers and nap time? That was me back in 2013 with a baby and toddler, a new stay at home mama who was feeling a little lost and wanting to DO something more for the greater good.
Enter Trades of Hope.
Trades of Hope is a company on a mission to make a difference in the lives of women all over the globe (19 different countries at the moment) through ethical fashion and job creation. We partner through the Fair Trade Federation with amazing women who want the same thing we do: to provide, to be independent and free and to make a difference in their communities.
Trades of Hope offers ethically made jewelry, bags, scarves, home décor, children’s items, COFFEE and more! Shopping or partnering with Trades of Hope as a hostess or Partner creates jobs for women coming out of poverty, keeps children out of orphanages, prevents human trafficking and supports survivors and educates children- and this is just the beginning.
I have loved meeting artisans from all over the globe through my work with Trades of Hope- traveling to Haiti and Guatemala, spending time with artisans from Kenya, Pakistan, India, Uganda and the Dominican Republic- REAL stories of impact and HOPE created through ethical fashion and a job that pays a living wage.
I have also loved that Trades of Hope has become a huge part of my life- my children have grown up seeing mom change the world. I love that I have a business that is bigger than myself that provides an income for my own family, but also for a mama around the globe.
Being part of Trades of Hope- whether you shop, host or become a Partner- you are part of the solution.
Thank you SO much for taking a peek at Trades of Hope! I can’t wait to connect with you!
