Seeing all your #ishifavorites last week blew us away, and we wanted to share these highlights with you:
"My #ishiselfies #ishifavorites pic of choice is of new #friends in spiritual community who inspire and motivate me to shine brighter. My appreciation for my #ishivest #ishiscarf and #fairtrade practices stem from my own #History /#Herstory as the daughter and granddaughter of share croppers. My father grew up picking cotton on a plantation alongside my grandmother on land not belonging to them. They worked from sunup to sundown, earning a mere 3.OO/100 lbs. of cotton. My Dad picked roughly 300 lbs. a day, earning 9.00 towards books, household expenses, and his weekend recreation of choice. As a youth my Father was denied a complete primary education, and made to pick cotton until he left the South and my Grandmother behind at the age of 15. To see workers earn a living wage, and consumers live sustainbly in a way that helps instead of harms our planet is most surely, #necessary."
Hope you all are shining bright today, and congrats to our big winner!
