You know what's the best? Finding amazing brands like Noonday, where the mission behind the brand is just as good as the product. Noonday Collection was started by it's founder, Jessica, in an effort to raise money to adopt her (now) son from Rwanda. In 2011 she brought her son home and since then has not stopped giving back. She basically provides jobs for thousands now as she works with 28 artisan groups in over 10 countries to produce items for the collection. All of their jewelry and accessories are made from ethically sourced materials and by using fair trade practices and are all handmade by the artisans in each country where they are sourced from. Noonday is not only creating beautifully crafted products, but are also creating pathways out of poverty in these communities and empowering people in otherwise vulnerable populations to be able to provide for their families. A portion of sales is also donated to help place orphans in forever families.
I'm sure you, like us, find it to be a no-brainer to want to support this company and purchase from their site after hearing about the story of Noonday Collection. I really think it's our duty, as consumers, to support brands like this by not always shopping from the big retailers or designers. Kelli, a Noonday Collection Ambassador, reached out wanting to partner with us to bring The Fashionably Broke readers an amazing Noonday Collection giveaway ($80 to spend on their site!) and we couldn't say yes any faster than we did. We were able to get our hands on a few items, the Nomadic Clutch (sold out), the Etched Bar Bracelet and the Athena Cuff (all made with love in India) to show you guys how cute their collection is. So, use the Rafflecopter below to enter and good luck!
