Do More With Your Money: The Bootstrap Project

I encourage you to take some time to get to know The Bootstrap Project. Meet the artisans participating and know that with every purchase, money goes directly back to the artists and their communities to alleviate poverty as well as help to "preserve and advance their fast dying craft." The products are absolutely gorgeous, one of a kind and would make great gifts. Check it out here and thank you to the founder for reaching out and sharing this amazing project with us.

These are beautiful--I love all the color, especially--and they're perfectly showcased on that breakfast table. I'll go check them out and keep them in mind next time I need a wedding, etc. gift. Thanks for sharing with us, Christina. :)
