We want to give back to both local and international organisations that support, empower and lift up women who are trying to build better lives for themselves.
The first that we have chosen to support is Above Rubies, one of our suppliers who is also a New Zealand NGO. The profits made from the sales of their jewellery and crochet pieces go back to helping other women in the Philippines who are outside of the project but in similar circumstances.
During the last few months, Above Rubies was hit particularly hard by COVID-19 and sales decreased. They are committed to continuing to pay the women through this difficult time, but there is so much more they want to do for others in the community too. We are excited to be able to support this incredible, life changing work.
We have a new product coming soon, of which ALL of the profits will be donated to Above Rubies. Watch this space!
