30 Days of Thankful 2017 | Day 05

30 Days of Thankful is a gratitude project run by Cathy Zielske each November. For more on this project, you can read this post. Each day in November I will share one thing that I am grateful for with a photo and some words. I’m also sharing it on Instagram @julieloveg. Join in! Have fun with it! Let’s document gratitude together!

05/30 I am Grateful to be an Independent Ambassador for Noonday Collection

Friend, can I tell you? I am SO GRATEFUL for Noonday Collection and all that it has helped to push me SO FAR outside my shell and do all the things I always wanted to do, but was too afraid to do.

Like tonight, when I pulled together a SUPER fun event with a local wine vendor, with two friends that sell chemical-free makeup by the AMAZING BeautyCounter, and skincare that makes your face sparkle, at the most AWESOME women’s consignment shop I’ve ever seen (which, conveniently, happens to be located in town)!!

I am grateful that I have a reason to advocate for artisans in the developing world, creating a marketplace for their goods, and spreading a message of love and support and goodness, all with the awesome bonus of also handling some gorgeous and totally unique accessories.

I have never been so proud to be an ambassador for an organization! And I am truly grateful to have found Noonday and to be willing to say YES to making this happen for myself.

Noonday Collection

FRIENDS. You guys. OMG. I AM SO GRATEFUL to be able to announce that I am officially an Independent Ambassador for Noonday Collection!!!! GAHH!

After nearly a decade volunteering in international development, I can tell you: it is RARE to find a company so driven to support and work with artisans all over the world, to help them build their own lives, to treat them with dignity and respect, and to co-create GORGEOUS pieces of jewelry that go FAR BEYOND words.

Every time I pick up a new piece, I am amazed that it was created BY HAND by someone without fancy machinery or even an office. Most pieces are created in outdoor spaces, by women who are given child care and a hot meal during their work day, by people who are given the opportunity to advance their lives

What is Noonday Collection?

Noonday Collection is a FAIR TRADE company that partners with artisans all over the world, providing dignified jobs in vulnerable communities. As a member of the Fair Trade Federation, Noonday is committed to creating long term partnerships with our artisans.

And we go *a step further* by looking at each artisan, and each artisan group, as a whole person. We help them to develop their own businesses, provide great working conditions for their artisans, and, beyond that, supporting them to provide hot meals and childcare for all of their artisan workers.

We are also a B-CORP, which means we are *completely transparent* in our business practices, and we put the planet, and the people, before profits. Noonday Collection is able to use it’s power for good, helping to solve social and environmental problems across the globe.

Together we are building a flourishing world where *children are cherished*, women are empowered, people have good paying jobs and live and work in their own communities.
