As I prepare for my second working trip to Haiti I am reminded how lucky I am to have a job that allows me to travel to beautiful places while being a force for positive change in the world. 

Yes! Haiti is beautiful!

This is Haiti:

But so its this:

And more importantly, this:

And this:

I get to sit down with amazingly talented, resiliant women and help them design jewelry and bags you will be proud to wear and use. 

I also get to put new shoes on childrens feet, serve meals at a center where 150+ kids are being fed every day and blow bubbles for kids who are so sick they can barely sit up. These are the the experiences that feed my soul.

We know you too have a desire to be a force for change in the world. You have a deep need to make a difference in a way that works for you.

When Buy The Change can hit the sweet spot of offering you beautiful, quality products, at the right prices, and a small window into the lives of the women who make them, you are all in.  We take our job very much to heart and work to be better every day.

This is our journey together and this is how we change the world one bag, blanket and piece of jewelry at a time. 

My gratitude is endless....
