“She is clothed with strength and dignity; she can laugh at the days to come. She speaks with wisdom, and faithful instruction is on her tongue. She watches over the affairs of her household and does not eat the bread of idleness. Her children arise and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her: Many women do noble things, but you surpass them all.” -Proverbs 31:25-30
Mother’s Day is nearly here and celebrations of love abound. Mothers create, nurture, feed, clothe and provide for their children’s future. We honor and love them for the care, compassion and hard work required of those tasks. At Vi Bella, this day is especially meaningful for the Artisans and their families, as the products and work support a path out of poverty for so many women. That path allows mothers to do what they do best, to care for their families.
How would you define a Mother’s Day gift? At Vi Bella you will find beautiful, unique handcrafted gifts that would make any mom smile, but there is a bigger gift at work here. This gift has the ability to make a larger impact than just a simple purchase. The gift you choose provides financial independence that positively impacts the lives of our Artisans who can then provide a better life for their children.
The Artisans at Vi Bella are mothers who demonstrate great persistence and faith to seek a life beyond the poverty that surrounds them. Providing employment is key to ending the cycle of poverty and Vi Bella offers opportunity and hope to each Artisan in Haiti and Mexico as they create sustainable jewelry and apparel.
Mother’s Day is a perfect opportunity to share Vi Bella and empower the women in your life to shop sustainably. The gift that you choose is not only beautiful and sustainable, but it is a gift made by women, many of whom are mothers who understand what it takes to care for a family. Mothers made those gifts and did so while seeking a better, more beautiful life for their own children. Your support for Vi Bella products allow you to be a part of that and your mom will love your taste!
Vi Bella provides all of our Artisans children with school sponsorships and funds after school programs. Currently, Vi Bella provides training and employs over 60 full-time jewelry makers and seamstresses who have learned new skills and a trade while developing as Artisans.
Looking ahead, we have a very big, God-sized dream to expand our team of Artisans to 1,000 by the year 2024. The ability to walk out of poverty and into a beautiful life inspires us and we invite you to read more about how you can help support us in our mission.
This Mother’s Day, with each necklace purchased, you can also purchase a pair of earnings at half price. Show the women in your life some love with a beautiful piece of Vi Bella Jewelry from our Spring Collection. When you give the gift of Vi Bella, not only are you giving handcrafted jewelry, but you are supporting women in their journey to break the cycle of poverty and provide for their families in a meaningful way.
