A recent collaboration effort with some fantastic women was published today on Green Wedding Shoes! It was an all fair-trade/eco friendly styled shoot to display some of the beautiful handmade crafts of others that are being paid a livable wage and made from sustainable materials.
I am inspired by other people’s stories of considering what they are passionate about and turning this into action through relationship, compassion, and almost always some huge risks. The women of Sseko are passionate about educating women and a working environment that fosters “dignity, honor and dedication” (you can read their organization’s story here). Celia Grace also promotes a fair working wage and environmental stewardship, as well as access to clean drinking water. The list goes on for the things that drive each organization and business (I’ve linked to their facebook pages below).
I still find that I struggle to put my passion to see marginalized women have dignity, safety, and love. I’m for sure still in process and very inspired by the lives of others.
To celebrate the publishing and people who pursue their passions, I’m giving away one of my favorite items that the women of Sseko make, their White Arrow Clutch in caramel.
To Enter: All I’m asking for this simple giveaway is: what are you passionate about? Answer in the comments section below. Then head on over to my facebook page to let me know you did. You can enter only once and it will be open until midnight this Sunday, the 27th.
