CAUSE OF THE WEEK
COURAGE.b and Same Sky Partner for an Exclusive, Empowering Event

Part of being a trend conscious fashionista and socially aware shopper is spending our hard earned dollars on fashion that makes a statement and supports a worthy cause. Eco-friendly finds are one way to make a difference and choosing brands that choose to manufacture their goods domestically is equally important. But one of the most worthy causes we believe in is the empowering of women around the globe. This week you can support African women artisans and purchase their coveted wares during an exclusive shopping opportunity co-hosted by COURAGE.b and Same Sky.
