    Same Sky is a fair-trade company whose mission is to empower women worldwide and inspire a movement of women empowering women. Founded in 2007, Same Sky aims to be a part of the global movement lifting women out of poverty by giving them the tools to become entrepreneurs and lead self sustaining lives. Our inaugural project is based in Kigali, Rwanda, a country where women have become a leading voice in the peace process and currently hold 56% of the national parliamentary seats. Same Sky’s trade-not-aid initiative uses jewelry to effect change in Rwanda - one woman at a time. Same Sky works with Gahaya Links a company that employs HIV+ women, all of whom are survivors of the 1994 Rwandan Genocide. Theses women artisans have been trained to crochet and make bracelets using our unique hand-blown glass beads. They are given a marketable skill and consistent employment, the two essential factors needed to rebuild their lives and those of their families. Headquartered in New York, Same Sky’s team collaborate growing the business and spreading the message of women empowering women. Same Sky’s bracelet design and socially responsible model is inspired by Mary Fisher, an artist, author and speaker who travels the world advocating for those who share her HIV-positive status. Mary was the first to teach artisans in Rwanda the style of crochet that we continue to use today. Economically empower a woman - you change her, her family, her community, her country and eventually the social and economic fabric of the entire world.

        This was from a press conference with Spike Lee. He shared his thoughts on the election predicting Obama as the next Prez, and coming up with the classic one-liner, "Chelsea not yo' mama, we want Obama!" Seems like a lifetime ago that Obama was a long shot to even get the Democratic nomination. Here's to a new America that looks beyond the black and white. And yes, I still love my republican friends...I'm just celebrating America this week!
