Something To Lift You Up: #FedByThreads

Because I'm not feeling especially funny this week I would like to take this opportunity to share with you a company that has really inspired me. 

It is close to my heart for several reasons, one of which is the memory of my late grandmother losing her job at a textile mill when the company she worked for was moved overseas. 

Alok Appadurai and Jade Beall are entrepreneurs and environmental advocates who set out to create an eco-friendly clothing line. Their goals were to stop outsourcing jobs, stop ruining the environment, and stop blaming the hungry for being hungry. Their organization, Fed By Threads, has done just that.

They are now the first and only humanitarian, sustainable, US-made clothing line and store in America that feeds 12 emergency meals to hungry Americans from each item sold.
That's an organization I can really stand behind. To see more of their one of a kind items visit their website, www.FedByThreads.com.
