♥ everyone needs beauty as well as bread.

this weekend, nick's cousin, morgan, nicely facebooked me about nest,
a non profit organization that works to bring empowerment and entrepreneurial skills to
underprivileged female artisans living in third world countries.

unlike most lenders, nest offers women an interest–free loan to start their businesses
and asks only that they pay back these loans in merchandise to be sold on
the website, rather than cash. nest also partners with domestic designers,
who in turn, work as mentors for the loan recipients.

a win/win situation for the women, the domestic designers,
the organization, and people like us who get the chance to buy gorgeous,
authentic jewelry, clothing and home goods from all over the world
and feel/do good all at the same time :)

here are a few of my favorite things:
