shopping to make a difference

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.

Noonday Collection sells jewelry, 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.

To help spread the word and to give you an easy way to make an impact {through shopping, no less!}, my friend Paige sent me a bracelet to give away.

I have this same one {in coral} and love it. It’s chunky and smooth and how cool is it that it was made by an artisan in Ecuador! Out of seeds!

If you would like to win this tagua seed bracelet, please leave a comment below. You can say anything. Just one entry, please.

Congratulations to the winner, Sara Field!

    I would love to win this bracelet for my sister-in-law Casey who has such a heart for children who are in need of loving families. Adoption may one day be in their family’s future, but for now she is learning how to be an advocate for the voiceless.

    LOVE that you have posted this, Emily! I decided for my birthday this year, I only wanted to get items that give back! I made a list and told family/friends to purchase off of this list. It worked great and I have pieces that I feel good wearing! We are a TOMS lovin’ family, too! :) Freedom Stones is another favorite, jewelry made by human trafficking survivors!

    I’m with you! I love shopping with a purpose. Ten Thousand Villages, Love 146 and a few others are among my favorites. Almost anything that combats human trafficking is my passion and shopping fair trade helps – it creates jobs, helps people get out of or avoid getting back into poverty… What an awesome opportunity. Thank you for sharing!!! Off to check out the website. Thanks again!

  54. Rhonda C August 11, 2012 at 2:21 pm #

    Emily,
    Thanks for sharing companies like this! I think we get caught up in the day to day life or work and kids and forget about those who struggle! Additionally, just thanks for all your inspirational posts and blogs. I really related to your post last week of spending time with kids and finding balance. I can completely relate and I only have one child! I think you’re doing an amazing job! Keep up the good work!

  55. Nichole B August 11, 2012 at 2:15 pm #

    I love not only being able to support an organization like this, but being able to wear the products and use comments about them to strike up conversation about what the organization is doing! I got to be part of a similar one in Congo, where my parents served for many years. So, so great!

  79. Tammy C August 11, 2012 at 7:54 am #

    This bracelet is beautiful! Thank you for sharing the site!!

    Some of my favorite shopping to make a difference sites are:

    – Warbyparker.com for prescription glasses and sunglasses- buy one pair and a pair is donated to someone less fortunate.

    -Livefashionable.com for scarves- made by women in Africa to give them a means of income they can be proud of.

    Anyone else have sites like this they like?!

    I once heard an animal anicdote about “making a difference.” There were a bunch of beached fish…or crabs or frogs or something like that…and a man was walking along throwing them back into the water one at a time. Another person came by and said, “There are so many fish, do you really think you can do any good?” The first man, throwing a fish back into the water, says “I made a difference to that one!”

    I think this is a great company. Not completely sure why they picked the name, but Psalm 37 (vs. 3) has been on my mind for the last year or so. Good scripture.

    This jewelry caught my eye SO much, its beautiful and I just love it! But the story behind it, is what I love most.
    I normally don’t spend this much on jewelry, as raising 4 kids is expensive, but I loved the “Happy day” necklace so much I went ahead and ordered it.

    And how wonderful it would be to have that gorgeous bracelet to add to my new collection!

    Thanks for sharing this with us!

    Vera :)

  264. Jessica Colley August 10, 2012 at 11:55 am #

    Have you heard of “Ten Thousand Villages” ? It’s a wonderful store filled with beautiful hand made items from jewellery to kites all made by people in Third World Countries. It’s exciting to hold in your hand something that someone thousands of miles also held in their hands, kind of gives you a connection to a person you will never meet but can yet appreciate. I would absolutely love to have this bracelet, it is beautiful.

  322. Janerie August 10, 2012 at 10:09 am #

    Beautiful bracelet as well as a beautiful cause. Will be checking it out.

  323. Jessica Vickery August 10, 2012 at 10:07 am #

    Hi everyone!

    Wanted to let you know about another similar business, who sells products created by Burmese refugees who reside here in the states. Hill Country Hill Tribers allows them to use the skills they already have to support their families. One of my best friends interned for them, and they are truly a wonderful organization!

    Here is their website which will tell you more: http://hilltribers.org. You can shop their products here: http://www.etsy.com/shop/hilltribers?ref=si_shop

    I am so thankful for businesses like Noonday Collections and Hill Country Hill Tribers. What a blessing!

  324. Moriah @ Please Pass the Salt August 10, 2012 at 10:06 am #

    I’ve always loved them, too. I think I’m going to buy one anyway, if I happen to win yours I’ll have one to pass along!

    This Year I am doing ONE Random act of kindness each day as my New Year’s resolution….
    My favorite I have done so far is (secretly) paying for a gyro for an immigrant from Pakistan (in Greece)…it only cost me 2 Euros, but for him I’m sure it made his day, and THAT made me feel good. I don’t want this bracelet you are giving away (it is lovely though, but I don’t NEED it) and I hope it goes to a good person. Have a relaxing few last weeks of summer! bye! :)

  336. Casey August 10, 2012 at 9:55 am #

    Beautiful bracelet and great idea. I am always feeling a bit helpless when it comes to helping others. Good idea.

  346. Rebekah August 10, 2012 at 9:34 am #

    LOVE their site and how they are making a difference! I notice you are wearing one of their necklaces in your picture on the blog…I want to get that one. After reading “7”, which you recommended, I am going to try to shop responsibily for all my Christmas gifts that I give to family this year….shouldn’t be too hard for the ladies…might be a little bit harder for the guys, but totally worth it. Thanks for the post!

  347. Laura August 10, 2012 at 9:33 am #

    Beautiful bracelet! I hadn’t heard of this website and will definitely keep it in mind when looking for gifts. I’m involved in a fundraiser coming up in October so will purchase one or two items for our silent auction.

  354. Katherine Landreneau August 10, 2012 at 9:22 am #

    Beautiful jewelry! What a great purpose!
    I so agree with you: sometimes I wonder, “Am I making a difference?” I believe if we are led by the Lord’s Holy Spirit, He will show us moment by moment what to do. We all have a “Lazarus at our gate” that we have an opportunity to help.
    Have you ever heard of “Knit a Square?” Worthy work as well. If you google KAS
    the info should come up.
    Thanks for the information!

  355. Shelley C August 10, 2012 at 9:21 am #

    I completely understand the overwhelming desire to do more. As I read your blog post, I was reminded of a women I saw on Pinterest that on her 36 birthday she did 36 random acts of kindness. Through her story, people were inspired and to read all the comments of what people did for their communities was astonishing. So, stay encourage to keep fighting the good fight because you, my dear Emily, are making a huge impact in those around you!

    Oh, and the bracelet is stunningly beautiful!!

I know you have been a world changer even at our church by donating some of your prints to be auctioned off. You DO work to make a difference, Emily. And we appreciate you. Thanks for sharing with us this great cause that we can all be a part of.

    Loved looking at the Noonday site. The jewelry is super cute! I love wearing jewelry with a cause behind it so it can give you occasion to talk about it when people comment on it {our church works with Women At Risk}. I’m thinking a few Noonday pieces will have to become part of my collection :)

  432. Rebecca August 10, 2012 at 8:19 am #

    Hi Emily,
    This is such an awesome way to be involved and have fun too. Another great way for women to help women is through the web site Kiva.org. You can choose the woman and the craft or business she has started and make a direct donation for as little as $25. It’s as though we women are connected by golden threads from one heart to another!

  433. Sandee August 10, 2012 at 8:19 am #

    Love the bracelet! I was so interested in the tagua bracelet that I did a Wikipedia search on it. Did you know that tagua is known as “plant ivory” and are used to replace ivory made from elephants (for example in bagpipes). This is great news for my African ears! Thank you for introducing it to us :)

  468. Pam K August 10, 2012 at 7:51 am #

    I love it when others are blessed. I try hard to be a help to someone else and I want to pass that on to my children. What a beautiful bracelet and thank you for the opportunity to win it.

  469. Calli Pettigrew August 10, 2012 at 7:51 am #

    I love that their logo has an image of the sun, a symbol of hope for the disparing and broken.The jewelry is beautiful as well.

  481. Susan August 10, 2012 at 7:42 am #

    I just love the way (usually) women find a way to do something to support their families. Teach a woman to sew and give her a sewing machine and voila! she has an income. God is so good that way.

  482. mandy manly August 10, 2012 at 7:42 am #

    Good for you to keep making a difference…hope it passes on to!

  508. Katy August 10, 2012 at 7:27 am #

    I needed to be inspired this morning. It’s so easy to help others but we so often can’t see past our own needs and wants. What a neat way to help out people who really need it.

  509. Katie Wyckoff August 10, 2012 at 7:27 am #

    I know just what you mean! The older I become, the more I am aware of the “needs” of this earthly world. It is so overwhelming! It makes me feel truly blessed, but sad for so many others. The bracelet is gorgeous…with such purpose behind it. God bless!

    The bracelet is really cuter, coral and red look great with mostly all skin tones. I will definitely have to keep them in mind for my next gift and jewelry purchase. Thanks for the giveaway and oh, pick me!
