collaboration with noonday {with a giveaway}

Do you ever feel like you want to make a difference, but you just don’t know how? Like anything you do feels somehow insignificant to a world in need of so much more than you can offer?

Me too.

It’s like we’re plugging a hole in a raft with one hundred more.

But I’ve heard story after story of little acts making a huge impact in one person’s life. A boy who had food to eat that day. A surprise latte that encouraged a hopeless neighbor. A pair of shoes for a child without. These don’t seem like a big deal to most of us – we eat and have jobs and wear clothes like its normal – but to those who need it most, it is a miracle.

I like being part of miracles.

Which is why I love Noonday Collection.

journal

Noonday Collection sells jewelry, gifts, items for the home and accessories – all made by artisans working their way out of poverty.  They also advocate for orphans, offering care and prevention, and support adoption as well.   All items are fair-trade and locally made, which means with each purchase, you are truly making a difference.

journal-and-pencil

I am honored to announce that JDC and Noonday have collaborated on a new journal. I know it’s just a little thing, but I feel so honored to be part of something bigger – helping women across the world make ends meet for their families.

journal-binding

My part was simply to design the cover and the artisans in India turned them in to beautiful works of art. Each is 5 x 7 and printed on super thick cotton paper.

The cotton pages inside are blank so you can jot notes, doodle, dream or journal.

journal-inside

Each journal included information about the artisan who created the journal – it reminds us that even a small purchase can make a big difference in another family’s life.

journal-top

The journals are now available at Noonday Collection.

I just know you will love them!

To kick things off, we have two lovely journals to give away. Here are the rules:

1. like JDC facebook page {right here}

2. like Noonday Collection facebook page {right here}

3. leave a comment

I’ll announce the winners this week!

    Love these so chic! And better yet they are made for a good cause:) Love it! Check out 2nd story goods. They are an online store that sells everything from jewlery to journals like these. They are all handmade by local artisans in Hati who are trying to pave a way for themselves. A mentor of my husband and me are now living there with there 14 year old daughter. They started the store and their son back here in the states runs it online and has a warehouse were the goods are shipped to and then distributed out. Again love this:) Have a blessed day!

    I remember that you have mentioned Noonday before – I am so glad for the reminder about what they do! And thank you for being an example of dedicating yourself to help make a difference – imagine if we all filled in just one hole on that raft how quickly it would float again!

  161. kristin M February 11, 2013 at 12:30 pm #

    In may of 2011 after reading the book 1000 Gifts I started recording my own journal of 1000 gifts. i started with a journal too small and am nearing 500. i need volume 2 to complete the journey of “counting my blessings’ which is exactly what my mother told me to do every. single. day. i am literally doing that and your journal would make a perfect volume 2.

  162. Shannon February 11, 2013 at 12:30 pm #

    Love the journal, love the company model even more! Found a new place for gifts! Thanks for the post!

  217. Jenny Moody February 11, 2013 at 1:25 pm #

    Thanks for sharing this with us, it’s good to know that there are organizations like this one that can help so much. Life can be so chaotic that finding ways to help others is not usually on the top of the list which should be the first.

  218. Laurie February 11, 2013 at 1:26 pm #

    Thank you for sharing about Noonday; I love to learn about organizations such as Noonday and to be able to purchase the beautiful items they sell so that I may help out women provide for their families. I also need a new journal and I can’t think of a lovelier one to receive or give to a love one!
