The Same Sky event this past Saturday turned out to be a great success! I think it is safe to say all of our hard work paid off, and benefited many Rwanda artisans. All the guests fell in love with the jewelry, and even more so with the cause. This kind of shopping eliminates any buyer's remorse, because we learned where the money of each piece goes directly. For example, the purchase of one bracelet is linked to providing the payment for one of the artisan's health insurance.
If you weren't able to make it, it's not to late to buy! Check out their website: www.samesky.com

"Instead of a handout, we believe in giving a hand-up, and the tools to become self sufficient," Francine told the crowd.
Thank you to everyone who came!
