Nest

Have you visited Nest recently?

I had blogged about Nest a while back in French, but it’s such a wonderful site with great goals, can’t pass up blogging about it again!

“Nest is a nonprofit organization dedicated to changing the lives of women in developing countries. The mission of Nest is to support women artists and artisans in the developing world by helping them create sustainable entrepreneurial businesses. To do this, Nest provides micro-credit loans to be used for the purchase of the supplies and materials necessary to begin and/or maintain art or craft-based businesses.”

Once on the site, you can purchase handmade goodies from Loan Recipient Designers, as well as from Domestic Designers. You will find everything from bags to yarn to letterpress to bath&body products.

Loan recipients are located around the World, like India, Tanzania, Israel and Turkey.

I couldn’t say it better that this t-shirt: Shop to save the World!
