Happy Creativity Thursday!
Today, my blog is featuring Maiden Nation’s collection of creative gifts that you can purchase to honor the women in your life on Mother’s Day and to promote social good.
Maiden Nation was founded by my digital sisters Willa Shalit, Elizabeth Schaeffer Brown, and Juliana Um to empower women through ethical fashion and to create a marketplace where items are designed with both beauty and social consciousness in mind. Maiden Nation’s designers are of the moment, their products are ethically sourced, and profits are reinvested into women’s entrepreneurship projects. Famed designers such as Yoko Ono and Chan Luu have contributed designs. See photos below.
Chan Luu’s “Kiss Kiss Bracelets” – named for the signature Haitian greeting of a peck on each cheek – are part of a line of Chan Luu jewelry created especially for Maiden Nation members of Hands Together Cooperative in Haiti, in partnership with the Glamour Women of the Year Fund Initiative and the United Nations Ethical Fashion Initiative. Each purchase will help the survivors of the 2010 earthquake build a new life by supporting this new business. Additionally, for every bracelet sold, $6 will be donated to Sean Penn’s J/P Haitian Relief Organization to support community development in Haiti. Additionally, to support victims in the U.S. and Haiti coping with the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, Maiden Nation will also donate $2 to the American Red Cross.
