Spring is officially in the air!
As the weather gets warmer, I know one thing I always crave is a NEW wardrobe. If you are in need of something fresh and original I suggest checking out livefashionable.com. I personally love the scarves! They are something that I have never seen before.
This website is a unique place for clothing that you CANNOT get anywhere else. FashionABLE is dedicated to sustaining a business for Africans so they are not relying on the help of others to live comfortably. My favorite part of this program is that it is win-win. You may have heard of companies like Toms. They give one pair of shoes to a child in need when you buy a pair yourself. This company is similar but maintains Africa on a higher level, economically. Women are able to get unique products that reflect their personality while the company empowers women. They create an increased job market where African women make the products. In this way, they are truly contributing their community, families, and themselves not just receiving care.
It all began when Barrett Ward and his wife Rachel saw how African woman were having to make detrimental decisions for money because they were so poverty stricken. Many resulted to prostitution in a hopeless effort to support their families. While in Ethiopia, various women told the couple they just want an opportunity to work not be thought of as a charity. So they gave the woman this. Their main goal is to create fair wage and hiring practices for women. With one thriving business they believe they can make a social change globally.
A special bonus is that each product is named after a woman struggling to make it and has her story attached. For example, Genet was able to embrace her role as a mother at age 15 because she could felt she had to resort to prostitution. Now, she enjoys working with Fashionable in dignity and has a support system of friends to rely on.
If you are looking for that one extra piece to complete your wardrobe I urge you to check out FashionABLE to help women like yourself be successful.
