Every now and then I stumble onto something just brilliant. I think “THIS IS IT! This is what do a little good is all about.

This year I have been signing up to be an affiliate for many of the brands I believe in, have been promoting and using for years now. I have not posted much about it, because frankly I haven’t really figured out how to work it into the rhythm of Do A Little Good. I want to make it clear that I will never advocate

Spending time in India with the wonderful, brave, inspiring ladies at Daughters of Hope this past January has been the highlight of my year. When I found out that they have just released their first line of fair trade products to be sold here in the USA, I went a little wild. I immediately connected with the wonderful people in Georgia who are dedicating
