My intent was to have a little, casual open house or coffee hour this Friday to introduce everyone to Noonday, but the weather outside is frightful! And if you’re like me, you tend to hunker down with your kiddos when inclement weather arises (& they have days off from school….yay!!).
I’m truly passionate about Noonday & the difference Noonday is making in the lives of families around the world. I would love to share my ‘Why’ (the shirt I’m wearing below is a small part of my “why”), as well as Noonday’s story & of course show you some gorgeous products (I am still building my sample collection & new items are on their way!!).
In the meantime, I want to encourage you to Shop with a Purpose this Christmas season!
You are probably wondering, how is Noonday different? When you make a Noonday purchase, you are not only receiving a beautifully handcrafted item, you are changing the lives of individuals in the poorest, most vulnerable countries around the world (Ethiopia, Haiti, Uganda, Guatemala, Nepal, Rwanda, India, Vietnam, Ecuador, Peru, Afghanistan, & Kenya). Noonday currently works with 29 Artisan Business partners in 12 Countries. Through collaborative design, responsible financing, capacity building and long-term partnership, Noonday supports Artisan Businesses as they create dignified jobs in their communities. Currently, over 4,000 talented Artisans are employed in their respective countries. Artisans are able to earn a dignified, reliable income through their work. This impact reaches nearly 20,000 family members. When Artisans earn a sustainable income, they are empowered to provide for their families.
I believe in dignity and the power of work. You can give a man a fish or teach him to fish. In times of crisis, relief is what is needed most, but to make a lasting impact, I believe in the long-term power of teaching & partnerships. Noonday is doing just that, helping people help themselves using the unique resources available in their respective countries & providing fair wage jobs for families.
Please thoughtfully consider how you can make a difference this Christmas Season & throughout the year! If you’d like to shop the collection, please note that orders must be placed by December 13th for Christmas Delivery. You can order directly through my site at www.noondaycollection.com/erikascott. Contact me at any time with questions about Noonday. I look forward to sharing with you soon!
