Giveaway... for Scarlet Threads

Scarlet Threads had me at hello.
Their vision statement starts with "We believe in the possibility of change" and ends with a powerful statement about the ladies they are working with, "People who don't want hand-outs, just a chance".

Have you heard of Fair Trade? (Click here for a little explanation...) Well, Scarlet Threads is a fair trade boutique specializing in products made from seamstresses in rural Asia. They are ladies just like you trying to do their best for their families. When you purchase from Scarlet Threads you are giving her the dignity she deserves with the security of a safe and rewarding way of life.

There is so much more to Scarlet Threads. I hope you take a few minutes to learn more. Right now, they are hosting a giveaway and everyone is a winner. (That is the hook, bite it....click over and check it out.) O.k. I'll give you a little more detail... It has to do with one of my favorite subjects, Aprons. A super cute apron that looks like this....


To enter....
CLICK HERE
A bonus... Tea and Crumpets is hosting a giveaway with one of Scarlet Threads aprons too.

Here's a challenge for you... and another giveaway
If I get 30 comments on this post I will purchase the Molly apron
(because I have a darling niece with that name)
and one person from the 30 comments will win the apron.

Spread the word...it's for a good cause.
(One comment per person.)

Doing the right thing feels good.

Oh, just too cute! I love aprons :)
I am going over to check out that wonderful site. Thanks for letting us know about it!

And thank you so much for the Honest Scrap award! I really appreciate you and your visits! Annie loves you...I always tell her about all the sweet comments, and let her know she has an Auntie Ann! I know, some people probably think I am strange. LOL! But, I talk to the horses all day long!
I am going to try to get around to this. I have 2 others I need to work on also. Maybe I could combine them!
I think you should do a post to let us all know what took you to where you are now, all the traveling etc! Enquiring minds need to know :)

xo, misha

Love the apron but love the cause more. One of my dearest friends just moved to Uganda to start a company similar to this, we email constantly and I have to say that part of my heart is with her in UG.

Hurrah for another Fair Trade seller! I love this-- I believe most people would rather pay honest prices for honest work, if only they know where to find it! Every new fair trade company helps prove my point. Let's apron up!:D
