The Power of a Purchase
Posted on 14 November 2016
There are lots of ways to help others, whether volunteering time or talents, making donations, or advocating for a cause.
But did you know that the way you shop can make a tremendous difference in the lives of vulnerable people around the world?
The purchases we make have power - power to line corporations' pockets with profits, or power to direct those same profits towards social justice. If you are going to buy an item anyway, why not choose an item that does something good for someone else - it might be the easiest way to help others!
Pearls4Girls is a non-profit social enterprise, which means that there are direct product costs and program impact - that's it.
For each and every piece in our collection, a minimum of 50% of the purchase price directly supports leadership programs for girls in Lesotho who are affected by HIV/AIDS, poverty and gender inequity. Each purchase of a necklace, bracelet or pair of earrings goes far beyond a beautiful piece of jewellery - there is a vulnerable girl who has a reason to smile every time you add something to your cart. That girl is empowered because of your purchase.
The choices we make about the way we shop matter.
Why not shop with Pearls4Girls for your gift-buying and jewellery-purchasing needs - you get to look good, do good, and feel really good about using your purchasing power to create positive change.
