Giving back in our own back yard is a part of our Twig culture and core values. That is why we are supporting Project Safe House this holiday season. But giving back around the world to help those who are our global family...well, we feel the exact same way. It's just who we are. This holiday season we are supporting two incredible organizations giving back across the globe.
Ssubihut (www.ssubihut.com) is based in Uganda and breathes life into a hospital that reaches out to those in need in the surrounding communities and villages. They create jobs for the local citizens by having them hand make bags and beads from recycled products and ship sewing machines so that women can sew with ease!
Clothing for a Cause is a brand new charity in Costa Rica focused on making sure that each child in orphanages in the most challenged areas of the region have the clothing they need. Ollie Ott began to see the need for Clothing for a Cause while spending time in the are building her business. Today Ollie, who owns a retreat center in Costa Rica, finds time to gather clothing, bring them back to Costa Rica with her to disperse to those in need, and employs Costa Rican citizens to help create jobs. Proceeds from clothing sold by Clothes for a Cause help with cost of living expenses for orphans they house and educate.
Both of these amazing organizations will be here, at Twig, tomorrow night from 6-9pm for our Holiday Shopping & Stilettos event! Come help us give back around the world this holiday season.
