“No act of kindness, however small, is ever wasted.” —Aesop
In hopes of talking less and doing more when it comes to helping others, I’ve started a series I’m calling Good Samaritan Saturday. On Saturday mornings, I’ll post a little something you can do to start your weekend out with positive vibes by helping to lift someone else up…
They started as a brand that makes purposefully mismatched shoes to “empower kids with creativity, confidence, and their power to have a positive impact on the world.” They’ve since branched out into a lifestyle brand with mismatched leggings and funky bags.
Pretty cool, right? Well, the more I learned as I poked around on their website, the more I liked them.
They use only vegan materials in manufacturing and ship their shoes in “art boxes” which are reusable and made from recycled cardboard. On top of all of that empowerment and eco-consciousness, Chooze is a Good Returns company, which means they invest annual profits into anti-poverty programs. These programs provide women with training, support, education, and loans so that they can start their own businesses and work their way out of poverty. That means that while you’re empowering your kids to let their creativity shine, some of that money you spend will also go to empowering a family who could really use it.
Um, color me smitten.
