I wanted to share Hope Art with you!!
If you have ordered a Kelly Moore Bag in the past few weeks, you will receive a bracelet in your package.
Each bracelet has been meticulously handcrafted by the Women of Western Zambia, and is a one of a kind piece!
These women are using their art to help raise money for a local orphanage that will help care for the children left parent less due to the AIDS epidemic.
Many of these women were impoverished and unemployed, but have been able to learn the skills of handcrafting these tiny paper beads.
For every Kelly Moore Bag that is purchased, a portion of the proceeds will be given to help those in need.
Hope Art is the first organization we have teamed with, and soon we hope to share with you other ways your purchases are going toward making this world a better place.
