I have been bursting at the seams with excitement over this next adventure! I could not wait to share it with you. So here it is, I am Arizona’s first Noonday Collection Ambassador! Woop!
What does that mean you ask? Well, I get to flaunt some fabulous accessories but more importantly I get to be part of something bigger, much bigger. I will have the opportunity to sell handmade pieces made by women around the world who are or had been living in poverty. Noonday ‘s mission is about advocating for the orphan by providing jobs that create a pathway out of poverty for families. A stable income means a family is less likely to abandon their child. Many of the locations where Noonday’s Artisans live have minimal opportunities to make enough money to support their families. Learning a craft & using natural resources allows the Artisans to create stunning pieces and run their own business. Noonday is a World Fair Trade Organization, read here to see what that means. In a nutshell, they create opportunities for economically disadvantaged producers, they pay them a fair price (better than their local market), they don’t force labor on anyone, they don’t discriminate, the working environments are safe & healthy, they promote fair trade, and they maximize the use of raw materials. Pretty awesome, huh!?
I first heard about Noonday through a fellow photographer. Once I visited its site I fell in love with the jewelry & mission. I have been praying for an opportunity to get involved doing more to combat the current orphan crisis. We are adopting & we will continue to adopt but that’s not enough for me. Poverty is the culprit for destroying so many families and creating orphans. Noonday recognizes that & is doing huge things in the lives of vulnerable families. I am honored to be part of such a wonderful company!
I would LOVE for you to check out my Noonday Collection site here! The main way Noonday shares it’s products & story is through trunk shows (get all your friends together, share tasty drinks & snacks and try on jewelry). If you’d like to share Noonday with your friends & get some beautiful pieces email me to book your trunk show. Everything I make through Noonday will help fund our current Ethiopia adoption. The first person to book a show in Arizona will get a $50 gift voucher. Ready set go!!!!
Thanks for supporting me in this new adventure! XO ~Brittany J.
