Moving ahead on our newest collection!

From Pine Ridge

Hi Everyone!

A Global Friendship (AGF) is excited to announce we have made several solid steps forward on our newest collection with our partner artisans on the Pine Ridge Reservation. The proceeds from this collection will go to combat the shocking level of poverty (47%) on the Pine Ridge Reservation. This compares to 13% among the general population.

AGF is working with two women artisans on Pine Ridge to combine their traditional talents with our networks and economic training in an effort to create sustainable solutions. So far we have come up with beautiful bracelets, necklaces, earrings and more! Right now we are continuing to fundraise so we can produce samples of each handmade piece to make them available to our accounts all over the world and the general public, too!

Help us raise money for these designs and create financial stability for these incredible women and families, all while making the world a more beautiful place!

Thank you for your continued support!

Love,

A Global Friendship
