Wear the change you want to see
One of my favorite clothing companies prAna is offering an amazing program "Be The Change" It's close to my heart and worth checking out for some Christmas ideas this season:
One of the ways prAna uses its company as a vehicle for positive change is to create partnerships with nonprofits and community organizations that offer on-the-ground help in small villages. Their exclusive products are hand-knit and sewn by villagers in Swaziland (southern tip of Africa) who are working their way out of poverty. Your purchase directly supports programs that provide food, shelter, education and medicine plus hope for the future. Give the gift that keeps giving this Holiday season.
I am totally purchasing a couple dark brown ones.
I love this idea!!!!
They've teamed up with a nonprofit fighting poverty and AIDS
in Swaziland to offer our hand-knit Men's Beanie. Each beanie sold puts
an impoverished family one step closer to economic independence and a better future.
Wear the change you want to see. Knit in Swaziland by women
working their way out of poverty, the cotton Tassel Beanie has
enough tassels to make complete strangers smile.
Checkout this inspiring amazing video Never Neverland that prAna is in partnership with. It might teach you a couple things you may not know about Swaziland, they are #1 in the world for HIV/AIDS.
