Fun Finds For Mom

Cute bags, great cause

I just learned about a nonprofit called Nest that helps improve the lives of women in developing countries by providing them with micro-loans to start their own craft-based businesses. As I understand it, the group is supported by a network of women entrepreneurs from around the world who contribute a portion of their profits to support the group.

The Nest site sells all kinds of clothing, jewelry, bags, notebooks and more. Some of my favorites were these little messenger bags from Henry Road that look so fresh and springy.

Thanks to Stacy from bysimple for letting me know about Nest. Stacy also contributes proceeds from her new mom gifts to Nest.
