Mother's Day

When you are a mother,
you are never really alone in your thoughts.
A mother always has to think twice,
once for herself
and once for her child.
– Sophia Loren

Mother’s Day is as much about honoring our own as it is about shining the light on all mothers and especially our producers who tirelessly pour themselves into work, including unpaid domestic hours that stretch far longer than their husband’s, to pave the way for a future for their children.

While First World mothers fret and lose precious sleep over extra curricular activities and optimal nutrition for their children, the less privileged women we work with are content to have food on the table and money for medical and school fees. The work they do, in a safe environment that honors their individuality, goes a long way in keeping alive a motherly wish of watching her children flourish.

And thank YOU for buying fairly traded merchandise so the women 100 Good Things works with can continue dignified hours of work.

The social enterprises and progressive businesses we source from are focused on empowerment and economic stability. Lending women financial independence ultimately gives them a voice that is still a cultural anomaly in less developed nations and certainly former conflict zones.

Mother’s Day celebrates the mother who so naturally places the needs of her child above her own, even in the most challenging circumstances.

The light in us honors the light in you.
