Fashionable scarves. With an emphasis on -able.
At this time next week, I'll be traveling through Ethiopia with the wonderful humanitarian organization ONE
. Yes, I'm excited. Yes, I'm nervous. No, Bono won't be there that I know of. And yes, you will be hearing more about it. But when I got my informational travel packet from the team at ONE this week, I was thrilled to find a surprise: a small, chic gift that does a whole lot of good. I thought you'd want to know about it too.
The stunning scarf from fashionABLE
absolutely melted me. Not just because it's beautiful, which it is, but
because of the hang tag on which I found a note from the artist who made
it. She completes the line in her own handwriting: BECAUSE OF YOU I AM
ABLE TO...see my son, Abel, grow in character. Thank you, Etanesh
Then I clicked over to read Etanesh's story
collection of scarves are well priced considering the good that they're
doing, and the styles are beautiful. Plus it's truly meaningful and lovely
to put a name and a face to something you're wearing. I imagine
Etanesh sitting there in her studio, taking such care in her work, and
trying to think to the future.
an amazing opportunity to talk to my girls about fashionABLE and
why I'm so dedicated to supporting companies like this.
Once I managed to swipe my new scarf away from my daughter who was
wearing it like a princess cape, I put it right into my suitcase so I
wouldn't forget to pack it next week. I think it will come in handy in all sorts of ways. And I think it will comfort me in more
ways than one. -Liz
