Nisolo Kickstarter

One week left to back this project

Nisolo is a lifestyle brand that makes handmade shoes and accessories in a way you can feel good about. And just as importantly, we design our products according to your tastes, so that you don’t have to sacrifice style or quality in order to shop responsibly.

To date, we’ve made shoes and accessories in Peru and many of you are the reason for the success we’ve had so far. Now, we’re asking for your support as we expand our products and social impact to Kenya in order to bring you beautiful, ethically-made jewelry.’

Christmas Village

Christmas Village is one of the oldest charitable events in Nashville, supported and run entirely by volunteers from the Nashville Pi Beta Phi Alumnae Club.

‘During the 54 year history, the event has generated over 9.5 million dollars benefiting thousands of people, as the proceeds support:

Special hearing and speech programs at the Vanderbilt Bill Wilkerson Center;
Patients recovering from traumatic brain injury at the Vanderbilt Pi Beta Phi Rehabilitation Institute; and
Funds and scholarships for aspiring artists at the Arrowmont School for Arts and Crafts in Gatlinburg, Tennessee.’
