Amidst all the talk about gifts this holiday season, we want to talk about giving. Not just about the pretty little gifts you’ll find tucked in your stocking or carefully placed under the tree, but about giving. Giving of yourself, your time and your talents. We’re hoping you’ll help us start a movement to think about how we’re giving, not just during the holiday season, but every day.
For the last few years we’ve been sharing the stories of Sseko women in Uganda. Our goal is to give you a glimpse of the courage, hope and tenacity that makes our little community so beautiful and inspire you to be a part of the Sseko movement to make the world a little brighter for women and girls everywhere.
But speaking of inspiration…
We think you’ve got a lot to give, too. That’s why we’ve created the Sseko Giving Wall. An entire wall in our new workshop in Uganda will be devoted to showcasing inspiring Instagram and Facebook photos from all across the world, showing us how and what you’re giving. We want to know how you’re using your gifts to make your neighbor’s day a little brighter and your world a little more beautiful.
So while you’re ‘graming away using the hashtag #ssekogiving we’ll be working away in Uganda, making beautiful products with beautiful stories. And every once in a while, when we’re feeling the need to be inspired ourselves, we’ll glance up at our Giving Wall and remember that giving is about so much more than presents.
So from the bottom of our hearts, thank you.
Liz & Team Sseko
