My daughter, Amy, recently hosted a trunk showing in her home for her friend Shannon who is an ambassador for Noonday Collections. This big-hearted company travels the world in search of artisans in underdeveloped countries. They bring their products back to our country and hold private trunk showings in homes to sell them. The proceeds help the impoverished artisans provide a living for their families.
I was happy to contribute to this cause. Offering a hand up is an act of compassion that benefits both the giver and the receiver. Our human condition compels us to help others especially when they are trying their best to help themselves and their families. The act of helping is cloaked in goodness.
