Here's how the world gets to be a better place: small acts of generosity and creativity that build momentum. A Brooklyn friend has a mission that I think you'll find intriguing: promote women by showcasing amazing products and amazing projects. The concept is called Maiden Nation.
Here's how it works: Raise some money via sales, raise awareness via community. It's a simple model. And I like it when I can understand the cause so clearly. Julianna, Willa and Elizabeth (the Co-Founders) aim to find ethical fashion to share with the world and to reinvest the profits into women'??s entrepreneurship projects.
Tomorrow they will showcase a special launch product at the Glamour Magazine Woman of the Year awards (read all about it here). The GLAMOUR Kiss Kiss Bracelet by Chan Liu ($25) is the height of boho chic. The bracelet got it's name from the signature Haitian greeting of a peck on each cheek. MAIDEN NATION worked with the artist and members of Hands Together Cooperative in Haiti, to create this trendy accessory.
