Paul's last post on HMHF challenged marriages to reflect upon the legacies they are leaving behind. We want you to know that we not only write about legacy, we try our best to practice creating one. I (Tara) am excited to share with you, as part of my first post on HMHF, one way we are striving to make a difference as a couple.
I love it when something I purchase benefits not only me but others as well. I like knowing my purchases have a positive impact. Scripture tells us to help others whenever we can. Noonday Collection is a fair trade company that allows me to do those things. Artisans around the world hand make jewelry and accessories and then Noonday Ambassadors market their products in the US to increase their reach. Making and selling jewelry allows artisans in countries such as India, Vietnam, Uganda, Haiti, Guatemala, and others to have dignified work, earn a fair wage, and provide for their families.
After a lot of research and prayer, Paul and I believe that Noonday Collection fits in with our values as a family. I have decided to become a Noonday Ambassador! As an Ambassador I will be able to share the stories of the artisans and promote their products and in turn be a part of their stories! By helping them sell their jewelry and accessories, I will get to participate with them as they provide for their families, send their children to school, and avoid poverty!
You can see the lovely products by going to my website http://TaraGibson.noondaycollection.com
I would love to talk to you about hosting a Trunk Show where you can help spread the message and even earn some free products in the process!
