HallieDaily 's Thoughts:

Wore this to send Red Bear to the school today; he looked at me and very seriously said, “Mommy, you look different today.” I asked him, “Is that good or bad?” “Good!” he said.

The first thing Red Bear did in school while I was still there, the teacher taught the preschoolers how to wash their little cloth napkins and table-cloths and hang them TO DRY on a little [kid-height] clothesline with wooden clothespins. I know most of the other kids, just like Red Bear, they never saw these things before; for them, doing laundry means machine in and machine out. Every of them learned how to do the natural laundry work very fast though! The senior German teacher lady told me, “Everyday we teach a little bit different things for them, and let them know there are a big worlds out there.”

The day when I received this necklace from 31 bits, reading the story behind the brand really touch my heart. The brand purchases jewelry made by hand by women in Uganda, at the same time providing those ladies with fair income and letting us enjoy African design and products. The brand funds both the US operations as well as the development programming in Uganda. Their goal is to continue purchasing jewelry from their African beneficiaries, as well as provide them with holistic development programs, equipping them to develop individual careers and attain social equity.

While I am here in the comfort and safety of my own life, thinking about “big issues” like what to have for dinner tonight [fish, chicken, tofu?] or what to wear for my next outfit post, or how to catch all the runway shows during Fashion Week, there are a lot of women throughout the world struggling hard to survive and just to get food for their kids. There is a big world out there, seeing the difference makes me more cherish what I have right now.
