That’s what Same Sky, a fair-trade company is all about.

Founder Francine LeFrak and Miss USA, Nana Meriwether, joined us to tell us about the company, which employs women with HIV in Rwanda and Zambia, training them to become artisans.

100 percent of net proceeds from the sale of their jewelry directly back into growing the business and employing more women.

On April 7th, Same Sky Bracelets will be hosting an ethical shopping event at SAKS in commemoration of the Rwandan Genocide.
