Handmade for a Cause

Posted on January 31, 2014 at 11:48 PM
Welcome back Fashion Friends!
 
I'm excited to start 2014 by talking about charity and giving back when we are able to. 
 
These are two topics that are very important in our daily lives. While some people talk about "giving back" in our communities some others talk about good karma. How can you go wrong when you're a person who likes to give? In other words there's nothing wrong with supporting people who are socially and economically disadvantaged. What do you think about that? Helping people who don't have the means or people who can't afford a decent meal, isn't that a good thing?   
 
In my line of work, we go way back to the roots. We're helping females in Togo, West Africa by empowering them through artwork. In other words, we are showcasing different talents like handmade clothing, scarves, paintings, carvings, jewelry, etc. In return these women can take care of their families. Did you know that empowerment starts with self-sufficiency? In reality, if you help a woman, she helps her family, if she helps her family then this helps the community. On August 2nd, 2013, on the Late Show with David Letterman, Oprah said: "Investing in a girl is investing in a  community". I'm so pleased that Oprah is agreeing with our philosophy. This makes our works at Afri(K)que so worthwhile. We're changing the face of Earth one female at a time and you are too by contributing to this blog! Congratulations on joining our blog in 2014 and we hope to hear from all of you soon! Feel free to drop us a line to let us know how we're doing.
 
Stay warm and always in fashion!

Everyone will agree with me that everyone in this world has his different opinion so as I too, in my opinion for fashion its not necessary to become a 'rainbow', I just hate those person who wear multi color clothes..

I really like Karma concept. However, I can’t totally agree with it. I know that it is simply a just-world hypothesis. You can read about it on Wiki at least or go even deeper and read some articles/books about it. On other hand I still think that we should do good thing when we can and Kurzgesagt video about egoistic altruism is exactly about it. Check it out!

While taking care of patients, it is very important to address their spiritual and cultural needs. Studies in the nursing career have depicted a very positive connection between spirituality and the results of a treatment procedure.
