FashionABLE scarves

Part of experiencing a more meaningful holiday season, is giving more thoughtful gifts. I came across a list of gifts which give back and thought this was the perfect place to start. FashionABLE scarves are made by women in Ethiopia who were once former sex workers. The most amazing part of the company is that they recruit their workers by going out onto the streets and convincing them there is a better way to live. I just picked up one of these scarves and it is not only beautiful and thoughtfully made, but creates a meaningful job and purpose for another woman on the planet. Women should support other women and buying a scarf is one small way you too can do that.
