World Adoption Day is November 9th, 2015. It is a worldwide celebration of adoption and a way to raise awareness and support for families. Want to show your support? Draw a smiley face on your hand and share #worldadoptionday worldadoptionday.org to get more info.
While I have no personal experience with adoption, I have many close friends who have chosen adoption for one reason or another and it’s an honor to share life and child-rearing with them.
My friend Becky is one of them; a strong, beautiful woman who has the most adorable son through adoption. In addition to being a mama to a busy three year-old boy, Becky is an ambassador for Noonday Collection; my new favorite obsession. And by obsession, I mean I probably wear a piece of Noonday jewelry or other accessory item every single day. If you’ve seen me in the last two months, you’ve surely seen the jewelry too 😉
What is Noonday Collection?
Noonday is a business that uses fashion to create meaningful opportunities for women around the world.
The company partners with talented artisan entrepreneurs in some of the world’s most vulnerable communities. The Noonday collection is handcrafted by 4,000 Artisans who are able to earn a dignified, reliable income through their work.
Noonday Supports Adoption and Orphan Care
We believe that every child deserves to grow up in a loving family. In the developing world, it is all too common for families to be split apart by poverty. By partnering with artisan businesses to create jobs, we enable families to earn sustainable incomes. This strengthens vulnerable families and prevents children from being orphaned or abandoned.
Noonday donates 10% of sales at Adoption Trunk Shows to raise funds for families’ qualifying adoption expenses.
Since 2010, Noonday Collection has celebrated over 1,200 adoptive families at Adoption Trunk Shows. In 2014, they gave more than $120,000 to families in the adoption process.
