I have a special announcement for today! Thus the post title #togotuesday
I've decided to join Francis & Benedict as an Advocate to expand the ethical shopping options I can offer to friends, family and future customers.
For those of you who are not familiar, Francis & Benedict is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that exists to empower and equip skilled Togolese seamstresses by providing them with dignified and sustainable employment. In addition, profits are used to resource community leaders in Togo, enabling them to continue projects that benefit orphans, widows, and those suffering in poverty.
As a sewist, I absolutely LOVE a company that supports women making an income through sewing. And these skirts are absolutely stunning! Something that you would not be able to find anywhere else!
What do you think? Would you have the courage to wear something like this? Would you save it for a special occasion or wear it proudly anywhere and everywhere?
Quite fittingly, the name of this particular maxi is Courageous.
If you'd like to step out in courage and learn more about Francis & Benedict, host a skirt party, or join me in this work, LET ME KNOW!!!
