Probable new organization and artist

I recently met a lovely local lady who has been wanting to use her art and business experience to help protect children from trafficking and exploitation. When her children were young she made amazing knitted intarsia sweaters and although she no longer has time to do that there is a good chance she will be providing herbal sachets and bath salts as well as some simpler knitted items. 

Another way she will be helping is that, being originally from Sri Lanka, she has contacts there with some Fair Trade certified shops such as Selyn a handloomed textile manufacture that is striving to assist the local women in using their traditional skills to improve the lives of themselves and their children.

I am very excited to get a chance to work with both Marietta and the Sri Lankan social enterprises.
