Noonday Giveaway!

My sweet friend Carrie (author, supermom, international rockstar) is hosting a Noonday giveaway!  Stop by Carrie's blog and enter to win this Noonday best-seller! (Or just buy it--it's on sale!) 

Notice how it is styled with this--the PERFECT holiday accessory. (Buy it, too.  It's not on sale.  That's ok.)

To enter the giveaway, Carrie wants to know what job did you want to have as a child.  I'm pretty sure I always wanted to be a teacher (dreams do come true, kids.)  My sister-in-law wanted to be the person that cut fabric at Walmart which I think is hilarious.  My middle child wants to be a ninja when he grows up.  Our family is full of ambitious go-getters. 

Speaking of growing up with dreams (queue emotional, transistional music,) you really do make that possible for the children whose parents are employed because of Noonday Collection.  Because when you no longer have to worry about the necessities, you get to dream about the future. 
From the Noonday Collection blog--one of the artisans viewing a picture of a Noonday Ambassador wearing the scarf he made

We were able to see the weaving process first hand at Migual’s house, whose entire family is involved in the process of making our Nod to Neon scarves. His children Alicia, Irmer, and Minor are all grateful for the work their dad receives. On Siggy’s last visit to go over a new order , Alicia called Siggy later and said, “Thank you so much for continuing to work with my dad. It is because of these orders, that I am continuing in school.” When I asked this bright 18 year old her dreams she said, “I am studying to be a preschool teacher so I can work with small children and keep our native language, K'iche’, alive.”

There are many children today who now get to ask themselves the question, "What do I want to be when I grow up?"  You play a part in making this possible with each purchase from Noonday Collection.
