Meet my friend Rachel Baxter. She’s a busy mama …like reeeeeeeally busy. She and her husband have 5 of their own children including one sweet boy with special needs and they are currently adopting a little angel from China named Ben who has Down Syndrome. And yet Rachel felt led to coordinate a group of wonderful ladies to help host an event just before Mother’s Day to bring awareness to the important work of Fashion & Compassion.

You’ve heard me talk about Fashion & Compassion before. I am so fortunate to share this beautiful old house in historic Dilworth as office, studio and boutique space with the Fashion & Compassion team. This non-profit organization/jewelry company partners with marginalized women in Charlotte and around the world. The women here in Charlotte and in the five partnering countries are coming out of trafficking, poverty, addiction, and or abuse. Fashion & Compassion creates a place of dignity for these women to work and grow in strength through giving them the opportunity to design, create and sell their beautiful jewelry. When you purchase from F&C you are not simply buying jewelry, you are investing in the beauty and dignity of these women made in the image of God. I encourage each of you to watch the video on the F&C home page and shop online or come visit our boutique here in Charlotte! Open Monday-Friday 9am-5pm (1717 Cleveland Ave. Charlotte, NC 28203)

Many thanks to the following ahhhhhhmazing ladies who helped make the May 5th event so special! Many of these ladies have written follow up blog posts too and I encourage you to hop over and read their thoughts:)
