When I embarked upon my personal journey with Operation Smile, I wanted to help raise money but I also wanted to connect with the children and families as well as help donors connect to them. That is how the Three Little Bears was born. Anita used to call it the 'story behind the product.' Let people know how and why it is made and they are more likely to buy it.
Yesterday I went shopping in Sag Harbor and dropped in the Urban Zen store. I bought a wonderful bag there made by designer Paula Coles. It is made out of recycled t-shirts and it a beautiful bright blue. It retails for $180 and benefits scholarship to a child in Haiti. A perfect first gift to feature on my blog. If you have an item that should be highlighted, please let me know. If you buy one of the items featured here be sure and let them know where you heard about it. #triggerhappiness
Have a great day.
