How Can I Make A Difference?
Your Shopping Can Change Lives
“Make a difference, not just a living”
When famine was declared in Guatemala, Maria Pacheco visited one of the remote famine-stricken villages and what she experienced changed her life.
Women were having to make choices as to which children would eat and which would receive medical care.
Their decisions were coming down to life or death.
When Maria asked a mother holding her sick child what she could do to help, the mother responded
“If you can sell what we produce, the rest we can do”

It takes a village to raise a child, and really, aren’t we all part of one amazing village?
Your support not only lifts a child into a happier and healthier life, it also helps to preserve their unique culture.
The traditional artisan skills of their parents and grandparents are being lost.
Buying handcrafted products keeps alive generations old techniques that are a child’s heritage.
