Wednesday, November 14, 2012 - Shopping to Benefit Women Worldwide

If you've known me for more than a day, you know why this tee is taking center stage - the Wise Owl Tee by Global Girlfriend is a brainy choice. Made of 100% organic cotton fabric, it sports a feminine cut. What's more, it's made in India where it's been fairly traded - no sweatshops here.

Global Girlfriend is a place one can shop with a clear conscience. Owner Stacey Edgar started the business with a $2,000 tax refund and a vision for the greater good. What started out as a big idea on a shoestring budget has turned into a multi-million dollar powerhouse that helps women in five different continents to give their families a better life.

Did you know 1.3 billion people in the world live on less than a dollar a day? Stacey knew that; and she also knew that 70% of that unfathomable number are women. With the help of Global Girlfriend, women from around the world are able to sell their handmade, fair trade, eco-friendly items while working from home or in safe working conditions.

While you prepare for your gift shopping this year, think about adding companies like Global Girlfriend to your online stops. Your holiday spending will be doing double duty, stretching the holiday cheer from that beautifully wrapped package to the other side of the world.
