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.’

Poverty and The Arts Interview

I recently enjoyed interviewing Nicole Brandt the Founder of Poverty and the Arts. Their goal is ‘to empower homeless individuals as artists and creatives by helping them generate income, meaning, and purpose in life. They use the arts to promote relationships and space for volunteers to view homeless as talented and creative individuals, thus creating better advocates and more compassionate community members.’ For more information visit their website
