    from Roy Paul Media Added 88 0 0

    From 2011–2015, the United States is commemorating the 150th anniversary of The Civil War. Cheryl Wills’ acclaimed book, Die Free pays homage to the storied treasure of her great-great-great grandfather, Sandy Wills, who fled his slave master (Edmund Wills) and fought valiantly as a member of the United States Colored Troops from 1863–1865. Sandy’s courage was mirrored in Cheryl’s father, a Vietnam-era paratrooper, who died without knowing his family’s historic legacy. Told with deep love & brow-raising honesty, Die Free stretches from Haywood County, Tennessee in the 1850s to New York City in the 20th century. The author shares the unvarnished truth about the Wills’ family roots, ever entwined in passion, music, and faith.

                  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.
