#Needle + #Thraed

Yes the word thraed is spelling right – play on the word trade! I was sent this business by a friend of mine…craft giving back.  Take a peek at what Celia Roach has created and what they have to offer.

needle+thræd partners with the Bebe Ravi women’s cooperative that employs 50-100 women based in Nakuru, Kenya – an area with unemployment rates as high as 40%. many of the women have been widowed by the AIDS epidemic, thus becoming the sole source of income for their families. by giving them access to revenue, not only are the lives of their children significantly improved, but the entire community is propelled forward. each woman is paid above average wage and provided with free meals. http://www.needleandthraed.com
