Girls- we are going to Rwanda. I say “we”- because our goal is to take you with us via the worldwide web. But before we talk about all of this, you have to go wish my friend, Annie Downs, a belated happy birthday and check out her book, Let’s All Be Brave. Love the title. Yes this.
On Friday, some of my favorite friends and I will board a plane with Noonday and IJM to tell stories from Coopers’s home country, Rwanda. I haven’t been back since we adopted him, and it all just feels too good to be true.
I’ve been on several international trips and told a lot of stories, but I have never taken a trip like this. We are telling happy stories. And designing jewelry. And making new friends. And dreaming together. In Rwanda.
Most fun justice trip ever.
We will be working side by side with artisans to create the #StyleForJustice Noonday collection together.
But we don’t want to have all the fun so today we have the difficult task of asking you to pursue greater justice for women around the globe by…
THROWING A PARTY! Haha! Tough I know.
Last Sunday I hosted my first Noonday trunk show, which is really embarrassing, because I’ve been friends with the founder, Jessica Honneger, since before it began. My excuse was that almost every person I know has already invited me to one of their parties.
Turns out, it doesn’t matter if you’ve been to 15 noonday shows–they don’t get old.
We had quite the party, and now, we all want you to throw one.
And we celebrated the beautiful Kim Patton’s birthday! She is a world changer.
Noonday trunk shows create a marketplace for artisans around the world who come from vulnerable communities. By creating a marketplace for these craftsman, we help create jobs and support women and their families all of over the world.
It’s just all good.
To host a party, all you have to do is–
Sign up here:
- Find an ambassador (Perhaps some of the most missional amazing fun women I have ever met.)
-Clear off your kitchen counter
-Invite all your friends
Host a show on August 7th and join women across the country for Noonday’s first ever nationwide trunk show for an exclusive peek at our #StyleForJustice Story Team trip to Rwanda.
I can’t wait to show you the lives that are being changed through just having some friends over and shopping together. Justice has never looked like this!

Will you do it? Do it. As Annie says, Let’s all be Brave.
