A noonday giveaway!

Hi friends! Happy Thursday! I'm so excited to share this post today because free stuff is my favorite, amen?!

My sweet new friend Katie, who is a Noonday Ambassador, offered to host a giveaway in conjunction with yesterday's post about ethical fashion. If you checked out the master list of responsible brands, you would have seen Noonday Collection listed under the jewelry category. If you're unfamiliar, Noonday Collection is a socially responsible business that uses fashion to create meaningful opportunities around the world. You can read more specifics about how Noonday works to help create a flourishing world here

To date, Noonday Collection has employed 4,047 artisans in some of the world's most vulnerable communities (which has empowered them to provide for their nearly 20,000 collective family members- it has a trickle down effect!). In addition, by people like you and me simply shopping Noonday Collection, 1,621 adoptive families have received funds to support their adoption. How awesome!

Three ways to join in the good work Noonday Collection is doing: shophostjoin. Need some new accessories for yourself or good gifts to give? Think of Noonday! Even more, create a marketplace in your own home (or local coffee shop or downtown happy hour spot) for your friends and family to shop fair trade and support artisans around the world! Want to take it one step further? Become an ambassador and encourage social change in your community by encouraging women around you to use their purchases for good and help to create a flourishing world! 

Katie is offering a $25 giftcard to Noonday, so pop on over to my Instagram account to enter! You have from now until Monday to be entered to win!

In addition, Katie is offering free shipping for anyone that places an order while the giveaway is live (NOW through Monday!) - saving ou $6.95! Get a jump on that Christmas shopping or take the first step to buying yourself some ethical accessories :) Just go ahead and place your order as usual, and Katie will send you a $6.95 refund via PayPal!

As if that isn't generous ENOUGH, Katie is ALSO offering a $20 gift card to everyone who books a trunk show! By creating marketplaces in our homes, we are giving artisans platforms to continue their work and maintain their business! Noonday doesn't sell in box stores because we love the integrity and community that is developed through story telling and truly sharing the heart of Noonday. I hosted a trunk show last fall (at 40 weeks pregnant - HA HA) and it was awesome. Gathering my best gal pals in my home to eat, sip wine, try on gorgeous jewelry and chat about ethical fashion?! So great!

Okay friends, happy hosting, happy shopping, happy giveaway entering! I'll be tagging the winner over on Instagram on Monday! XO!

PS - you can also follow along with Katie via her Instagram account, as well as her blog. Thanks, Katie, for blessing my sweet readers with your generosity!
