My hope this month is that I can showcase a few organizations that are giving back with each of your purchases.  These are organizations that are committed to doing more with your dollars than just pocketing them for themselves.  They care about the least of these.  As you prepare for Christmas shopping I ask that you think about your money and don't just throw it to anyone.  There are lots of giveaways this month, so check back daily!




I'm not sure when I first heard of Raven+Lily, but since then I've met one of the founders and was able to hear her heart behind this organization makes me love it even more!


Raven + Lily is a socially responsible brand dedicated to empowering women through design partnerships and sustainable economic opportunities. By purchasing R+L products, consumers are part of breaking the cycle of poverty and transforming the lives of women and families. Our current collections feature exclusive handmade and eco-friendly jewelry and accessories from North India, Cambodia, and Ethiopia. The beauty of each modern, organic design reflects the beauty and culture of the woman who made it.



Raven+Lily is offering a beautiful bag to one of my readers!  Hand-woven grey cotton is complimented by a strip of color at the top of this bag, featuring our fall tassel pattern artistically printed in chartreuse ink. This tote’s sturdy black leather straps make practical for any kind of travel. Hand-printed in Cambodia, these eco-friendly bags are made with hand-loomed, natural-dyed and remnant materials by HIV positive and formerly trafficked women. In addition to providing sustainable economic opportunities, Raven + Lily returns proceeds to fund healthcare and literacy programs for the women and children in this community.

If you don't win, don't worry, because Raven+Lily is offering 25% off at check out with this code:  DreamingBig! Also if you are an Austin local, you can select “local pick up” and opt to come by our office for their order rather than pay for shipping. This awesome offer is good for one week, so order some Christmas gifts between now and next Monday (11/19)
