TOMS Marketplace | Ethical Shopping

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

Everyday Activism | #FEEDsupper

I am a fan of the ONE Campaign. Big fan. They have the corner on the market of #everydayactivism. They recently launched a ONE Women’s and Girl’s initiative, which is simply brilliant.

Back To School… Educating Girls

On a light note, two of my three went back to school today.

The Holiday Shop 2015 is also in the making and I am

However, if
