To find out why I started this series, check out World Peace Shelf.
Have you heard of Trades of Hope? It’s an organization that helps employ and empower women all over the world (but especially in developing countries), and they create some beautiful products. I recently went to a Trades of Hope party, and I found some things that would be perfect for our World Peace Shelf!
I purchased a small purse (made by women in Guatemala), a necklace (made by women in Uganda), and jingly bracelet (made by women in Thailand). I don’t know where she gets it from, but L is obsessed with all things girly. She LOVES trying on my jewelry, and she was so excited to find this on her shelf and put it on!
Each Trades of Hope product comes with a small card with information about where the product was made and the women that are employed there. I included the cards in her purse so we can talk about the women who made her jewelry and where they live.
