Giveaway~ Scarlet Threads & Williams-Sonoma

Can you imagine not having the opportunity to work and provide for your family? Many of us stay home with our children or we plan to be a stay-at-home-mom someday but we have the opportunity to work if we choose to or if we need to. In rural China, the women don’t have the same work and career opportunities that we often take for granted. They want to work and provide for their families. They don’t want a hand out.

My friend, Carrie, volunteers at New Day Foster Home in China. She recently started the most amazing business, Scarlet Threads Boutique. Scarlett Threads specializes in “unique products designed and produced by talented seamstresses in rural Asia.” Scarlet Threads is helping women in rural China by empowering and employing.

From the Scarlet Threads website… “We believe that helping the poor requires more than charity. It means instituting sustainable change by providing safe and rewarding work, enabling the poor to provide for their own families and meet their own needs. We provide economic development opportunities to empower people just like you... people with kids to raise and bills to pay. People who don't want hand-outs, just a chance.”

I’m so excited about this giveaway! The winner will receive a Scarlet Threads Limited Edition Savannah apron. Since you’ll have a new apron, I thought you might like something new for the kitchen. So I’m including a $25 gift card to Williams-Sonoma.

There are 3 opportunities to win…

What awesome aprons! I must admit I love the Caroline because of the colors but they are all so cute with that ruffled hem!

Shoshanah said...

That sounds like a great idea. And all of her aprons are so cute. But I think may favorite would have to be the Phoebe. Or the Carolina, it's hard to choose. And I'm already a follower, so I guess that's 1 entry.

ShyGirl said...
