where you money goes when you shop with purpose. to help improve a community-based project in masoro, rwandawhy? in 2014, we helped a group of artisans set up their own business, a for-profit company that supplies handbags to our on purpose collection. their company employs more than 200 women who earn competitive salaries and enjoy benefits from health care to paid maternity leave.
this year, 2% of net sales (up to a maximum donation of $103,827) from our shop with purpose event (september 12th - 16th, 2018) will be donated to our non-profit partner, tides foundation, who will grant the donation to africa yoga project.
