philosophias' Shop Announcement

Welcome to my shop! I design and make each bracelet by hand and loan 20% of profits to Kiva, an organization that helps people around the world kick-start their own businesses.

Please make sure you refer to the sizing chart when choosing a size!

♡♡KIVA♡♡

When I first opened my shop, I promised myself I would set aside 20% of the profits for a good cause. After about 6 months of donating to a charity, I learned about Kiva loans and immediately made the decision to start lending through Kiva instead. Kiva connects lenders with borrowers worldwide who need money for everything from college tuition to much-needed housing improvements to business expansion. In short, these are loans given to people so they can get a head-start on their lives that they couldn't do otherwise. As someone who has studied humanitarian aid and development in depth, I truly believe that this is the best option because it enables people to improve their own lives on their terms. It calls to mind the old proverb "Give a man a fish and you can feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you can feed him for a lifetime."

Loans are almost always paid back. I will then reinvest the money into a new borrower as long as my shop is open. It’s truly the gift that keeps on giving. I have been so fortunate to have access to funds to kick-start my Etsy business, and I want to be able to help others kick-start their dreams as well. Check out the site here: www.kiva.org
