Hi everyone! I have a question to ask to all of you.
Have you ever given the gift of hope? Now I would like for you to think about that for minute. Really look inside and let that question sit with you.
When I think of the question myself, the question is a big fat YES. When I go back and think about the question again, I know that when I do I am not only helping another person but I can feel that change happen. When you give the gift of hope you know that gift means so much more.
I want to introduce you to Stephanie Waisler-Rubin the founder and owner of Unatti Foundation.
The best way for me to introduce you to the Foundation is through their video’s because it can educate you first hand why Stephanie started the foundation. Each time I looked at the website I get teary eyed because I see the big heart that Stephanie has for the children. Each child that Stephanie has helped and still helping has a story.
I want you to take a look at your own life. Then take a look around you in your own neighbourhoods, and in your own family unit and see that we have it good here because of what is provided for us.
The Unatti Foundation has helped so many people thus far and I know Stephanie’s goals are to provide that gift of hope and life to so many other children and families.
I know that some of us will remember those 2 devastating earth quakes. Stephanie wants everyone to know that Unatti Foundation is partnering with communities beyond Bhaktapur in their Phase 2 project.
Now to help run the all girls group home, they also work with women artisans creating beautiful handmade items. When I first look at the online webstore, I fell in love with all of the handmade items, I honestly clicked on each and every one! I also noticed something that was unique, each product you are able to see it shows you a impact statement letting you know with each product you purchase how it helps.
When looking at the Unatti Handwoven Shawl you will notice that it helps give 109 meals to local children at the foundation and within and around Bhaktapur community.
Here’s my oldest daughter Miss K having a turn at wearing the shawl while we were out for a walk this fall.
I can say ever since I received this hand-woven shawl, I haven’t taken it off. ( sometimes I use it as an extra cover too!) It is really warm, soft to the touch and my heart is filled with so much love and happiness knowing that when you purchase anything on the webstore you are helping children to have a meal. You are helping to elimate the poverty that seems to be everywhere you turn.
There are a few more products I will be purchasing in the future.
Like the Hand felted Stone Pillow – Yogyashori one of the women artisans who makes this pillow use to only make $29 dollars a month. Before working at the Unatti Handicraft store she could not afford for her children to get an education, now she is able to send her children to school so that they can learn and become whatever their little hearts desires.
The purchase of one Unatti Poncho affords 254 meals to children in Nepal.
The purchase of one Unatti Hamsa Necklace affords 124 meals to children in Nepal. It also goes to support the girls that are living in the Unatti Foundation House.
I know I have listed a lot of pieces from their collection. I fall in love with each and every piece that they offer. I know for certain that you will fall in love with them too.
