Blog Action Day – The Power of We
We are proud to be a part of Blog Action Day this year, something we’ve participated in for 5 years now. Blog Action Day started in 2007, as a way to focus the conversation online for one day on a relevant world issue, something we can help shed more light on, or bring help to. This year, the topic revolves around “The Power of We.” The Blog Action Day website defines this topic as: “The Power of We is a celebration of people working together to make a positive difference in the world, either for their own communities or for people they will never meet half way around he world.” Pretty inspiring.
For our post today, we’d like to highlight several people that are doing great work to help individuals in need, and are doing so with great style and beautiful design.
Stop Traffick Fashion
Stop Traffick Fashion works to educate people about the reality of human trafficking today, and the fact that it continues, but we can do something about it. They celebrate survivors and offer them opportunities by selling clothing and accessories made by human trafficking survivors. See their beautiful new website, which uses a variety of textures and handmade details to give a unique look to the site, and check out the great products in their shop.
