I wanted to dedicate this N post to a really special organisation...


"Nest is a nonprofit organization dedicated to changing the lives of women in developing countries. The mission of Nest is to support women artists and artisans in the developing world by helping them create sustainable entrepreneurial businesses. To do this, Nest provides micro-credit loans to be used for the purchase of the supplies and materials necessary to begin and/or maintain art or craft-based businesses. "

Some really amazing artists and designers support this great organisation including one of my favourites Dolan Geiman. Alongside Dolan's artwork is some great home wares, paper products, jewellery and accessories. And the best thing? Every purchase makes a difference.

I didn't want to cut and paste all their information so I do encourage you to pop over and check out the Nest website and store.

Changing the world, one purchase at a time.

I love reading about people who are passionate about helping others. Rebecca Kousky the founder and director of Nest is one of those inspiring people. I hope you find some inspiration here today too : )

See you tomorrow for O! xxoo
