Noonday Collection

As the fundraising train was leaving town, a dear friend asked me "So, what's next?" We have been going nonstop since June! It was only natural to wonder about the next big adventure on the horizon. Well, here it is......
Noonday Collection

I have taken a huge risk and hope for big rewards for not only my adoption fund, but for women around the world living in poverty. I am one of the newest Ambassadors to Noonday Collection. I certainly am not a sales woman and that was never my goal, but I am an advocate for the oppressed, for the orphan and for the widow. I stumbled upon Noonday after reading on of Jennifer Hatmaker's blog posts! I just love her!! I found that Noonday is a company that has formed lasting relationships with artisans from impoverished areas around the world. Noonday and the artisan themselves agree on a fair wage, that is many times 2-4 times more than they would earn in their local market places. Noonday started in 2010, as a single trunk show by founder, Jessica Honegger, as a fundraiser for her own adoption from Rwanda. Noonday became a company in 2011 and now has formed partnerships with over 1,000 artisans in 11 different countries, and even refugees who are located in the United States. I fell in love with Noonday the moment I read the story behind the company. Noonday gives all of us the opportunity to be the hands and feet of Jesus, serving oppressed populations around the world, while looking beautiful along the way. With Noonday's partnership with these incredibly talented artisans around the world, they are being allowed to rewrite their own futures…futures where families stay intact, where medical supplies are afforded to those in need, where life sustaining meals are no longer luxuries. While we are clothing ourselves in one of a kind accessories, we are allowing these women to earn sustainable wages and self worth. Talk about remarkable beauty! I cannot think of a more fulfilling way to feel beautiful that wearing a unique piece of jewelry, knowing that a woman with a heart for God, hand-crafted it with us in mind. We are so very rich in prosperity and blessing in our country! Let us give back!

 Noonday works through trunk shows in the home of a hostess, just like YOU!!! Open your home to the women of the world and help create a pathway out of poverty for families. Invite your girlfriends over and introduce them to Prossy, Jalia, Alma, and Fara (just to name a few). These artisans and small business owners handcraft distinct accessories, receive a living wage for their work, and allow our Noonday Ambassadors to fill your home with the latest style trends. Each trunk show guest can enjoy the fun and beauty of shopping while impacting lives. Whether it is a sandal that provides a scholarship to a young girl, a necklace that restores dignity to an HIV positive woman, or a scarf created through a micro enterprise loan, each purchase tells a story (with style!). Not only will you learn about about the artisans themselves, but you will learn exactly how each unique piece is hand-crafted. You will marvel at their talent and weep at their stories!

Experience a Noonday Collection trunk show in a setting like no other: your own home.  I would love to tell you more about how you can bring Noonday to your friends and family, by hosting a trunk show of your own, while earning FREE products! Oh yes, I did in fact say FREE!!! Hostesses will earn anywhere from 10%-20% of their party's total in free merchandise, while gathering with your friends, admiring beautiful accessories and having sips and snacks together. as many of you already know, orphan care is near and dear to my heart. It is near and dear to Noonday as well! Do you know an adopting family in your community? Noonday will donate 10% as a fundraising effort the help bring a child home! Now go browse my website, and fall in love with the accessories…and the story behind each one!
