This weekend (Friday to Sunday) we are partnering with Magic Beans (the non-profit that runs Feeding Hope Children's Feeding Center) to donate one meal for every item ordered from our website.
We did it again! Working together for a better world. With your support, and because you choose to shop for change, Buy The Change was named to the Best For The World List for 2016. It's our 3rd year in a row. The list is compiled by BLab, the non-profit organization responsible for conducting indepth assessments of companies applying to be certified as Benefit Corporations. Based on our assessment, we scored 1st in the category of benefit to community and 16th overall for a company our size. This is in a field of over 1800 companies. That is something to be proud of.
Recently I have been thinking a lot about the women we work with around the world.
During my conversation with Romy on the Bonfires of Social Enterprise Podcast a few weeks ago, I was explaining our process of partnering with women who are creating beautiful products using a variety of skills. They have learned these skills from their mothers and grandmothers, or from other women in a cooperative, or through a program working with a non-profit or NGO.
