In HER words :: Born from a combined passion for art and social good, I established Made with Hope as an outlet to serve others while providing a needed service. Let’s be frank: women of all socioeconomic statuses deserve to feel beautiful. As an American woman, I have the privilege to witness beauty on a level most in third world countries only dream of.
While volunteering with World Vision I realized that many girls are being told lies and sold into slavery, most of it sexual. They emerge feeling betrayed, embarrassed, and they lose a sense of what beauty really is. I want to make American beauty genuine, affordable, and unique so that I can give to the girls who need and deserve a freedom. These girls are due the right to grow up and become beautiful, free women.
My goal is to make jewelry as beautiful, and a simply, as possible. I want to give back in as many ways as possible and being a green business is one of the easiest ways to achieve this goal. The easiest way to meet this goal is to shop for fabrics from clothes found in the thrift store.
Doing this almost always guarantees that I can make unique earring using fabric no one else uses. When I need to purchase fabric, I try to buy fair trade African fabrics. I package my earrings in boxes made from recycled fibers, and ship them in mailers made from post consumer waste. However, being green is not enough, so I have dedicated 100% of my net profits to World Vision International, or another deserving charity.
