A few weeks ago I got to sneak away from everyday life and have a girl's night in Austin. Me and my best girlfriend got to attend Jamie Ivey's Happy Hour Live! It was so fun and so needed. Once we arrived at our hotel my girlfriend asked if I ever missed being a part of Noonday. We had not spoken of Noonday probably in over a year. It was so random because just a few days prior I had actually got the idea in my head to join back in. I wasn't sure I wanted to because so much of it is reliant on other people hosting shows and finding those hostess is hard to do. I had even told Ryan a few nights before the trip that I was thinking about joining again. So I felt like maybe her randomly bringing it up was a sign from the Lord! Who knows? Then that night at the event filled with tons of ladies, Jamie asked if anyone was a Noonday Ambassador. Yall there wasnt ONE hand raised! I couldn't believe in a group of women with so much in common, no one was representing Noonday. I felt right then and there that I never wanted to not be able to raise my hand again. I wanted to be able to say I'm a part of bringing dignity to men and women in vulnerable communities. I wanted to be able to say YES I am helping make a difference in the women. I wanted to be able to tell my friends that they CAN make a different with their purchase power and I wanted to provide them with that avenue. So right when I got home, I jumped back in! I'm back at being a Noonday Ambassador.
If you have NO idea what Noonday is, here is the real definition... Noonday Collection a socially responsible business that uses fashion to create meaningful opportunities around the world. When you purchase jewelry from noonday you are providing reliable income for men and women in hard places. They depend on the consistent orders placed by noonday costumers to provide a respectable job for themselves. Noonday doesn't give a handout they provide opportunity. They bridge the gap between US and THEM.
My other answer would be they are a fair trade company that sells jewelry that looks like it is made from Anthropologie. That is what drew me to Noonday over 5 years ago. Cute stuff that makes a difference. Its a no brainer for me!
So if any of this strikes a cord with you I'd love to chat with you. I love to talk to people about stuff that fires me up and fair trade definitely does that! I would share that you can get involved by becoming a customer. You can shop for yourself or gift for family members. Noonday is great for all ages. (My daughters LOVE my Noonday samples!).
Or if you love it SO SO much you can join as an Ambassador and you can share Noonday with your people yourself and get the behind the scenes perks!
So thats my spill. Noonday Collection rocks and makes a difference.
