Spread the Sunshine

Hello lovelies, today's post is a very special one and let me explain you why. A few weeks ago I was contacted by the fashion accessories line Nepali by TDM Design and I got to know that I have been chosen as one of the ambassadors for their line among with a few other amazing bloggers. Needless to say I was so honored and excited! The ideas of entrepreneurship and giving back to community were circling in my head for a while so this was a great opportunity to make these ideas come true. 
Let me tell you a little bit about the brand: what differentiates Nepali by TDM Design from other brands is that all of their products are hand-made from natural, high-quality materials by a group of women in Nepal. The company has encouraged these women through this work and has enabled them to become empowered, respectable participants in their families in a heavily patriarchal and impoverished society. They receive the above-market compensation, monthly medical care and education for their children. For most of us it might sound so ordinary but don't forget that for some people having a basic medical care can be a privilege. 
And have you ever thought that an eco-friendly clothes could look so great? You should see their scarf collection, it's wonderful! I'm absolutely in love with my bamboo scarf (the one I'm wearing in the photos), it's so lightweight, soft and perfect for summer -- light enough to wear outside and warm enough for a freezing office. I'm sure you'll find something you love on their website. And by the way, they are offering a 50% off discount for the entire site with the code: COMPUTERS. Wonder why computers? Because Nepali by TDM Design has a goal to sell enough scarves to build a computer lab in the school in the Nepalese village by the end of the summer. Link to the website here
What are your thoughts about social responsibility? Do you take part in it?
I hope you are having a beautiful day! xo
