In Uganda and India, poverty often leads to exploitation of vulnerable women in sweatshops. Every purchase provides these Artisans with fair wages, access to health care, and helps families leave slums.
This was an amazing moment. This little girl’s mama asked if I would take a picture with her. Her mama is an artisan we work with in Uganda, and she was so proud of her baby!
I’ve had mamas put their babies in my arms and ask me, with tears in their eyes to find a home for their child so he/she could survive. So, their baby could have food and shelter. Heartbreaking is a word that doesn’t cover that feeling.
So, on this day when a mama ask me to hold her baby, to take her picture, I had tears in my eyes again, but for all of the right reasons.
You have so much power to change lives by how you spend your dollars. It is so exciting to really KNOW we all have ways to create change!
