Some friends of some friends of mine are doing some really great things out there in this big ol’ world. They are Humble Hilo, an organization that brings together unique, handmade products from Guatemala to us in the states, while sharing a portion of all profits with those in need.
“Just like one ordinary strand of thread can make an extraordinary product; we believe ordinary people can do extraordinary things-you are living proof. We are a passionate group of individuals that mix fashion with philanthropy. With more than 8 years spent in Guatemala working with non-profit organizations, we want to do more than just sell products; we want to create a change. We’ve traveled back to bring fashion-forward items to market. These unique items mix ancient techniques with modern style that will set you apart from the rest. More importantly, we want you to take part in our philanthropic mission by selecting from one of our three amazing projects: Infant and Child Nutrition, Education, and Microfinance for Women. A portion of your purchase will go to support one of these projects and will not only change you, but change the future of someone in need.”
