March is Women’s History Month, where we celebrate females and everything we’ve accomplished. So this is a good time to help women in need around the world with the situations they’re currently in. These organizations work with women to empower them through steady employment and financial support - and they’re doing it by selling some very cool items for you and your home. If you want to support a good cause or just want to buy some stylish stuff, consider shopping here.
The Little Market - Lauren Conrad founded this fair trade shop that’s a nonprofit charitable organization which helps support and empower women artisans in developing countries. Everything you buy creates income for the artists and improves the quality of life for them and their families. You can shop The Little Market website by country or product and they sell home accessories, gifts, and things for babies and kids.
Raven and Lily - This Austin-based company works with female artisan groups in Ethiopia, Kenya, Haiti, and more. Their goal is to help women in these countries provide for their families and break the cycle of poverty. Raven + Lily sells clothing, jewelry, bags, and housewares and they’re part of the Fair Trade Federation so you can trust your purchase is helping a good cause.
To The Market - Before starting this shop that sells “survivor made goods,” founder Jane Mosbacher Morris led an anti-human rights trafficking initiative and worked with the Bureau of Counterterrorism, and with Global Women’s Issues. To The Market sells handmade goods that are made exclusively by artisans who’ve “overcome the perils of abuse, conflict, and disease.” They hope to provide these women with financial independence while raising awareness of their situations.
