Celebrating Our Mother's

As we celebrate all mothers on Mother’s Day, I feel a deep sense of gratitude for my mother and all the other selfless, loving women who are a constant presence in my life. My thoughts are also with our artisan community in Africa, the women who are resilient and determined to better their families and communities. I think of Sween, the high-spirited artisan, whose passion, hard work and tireless efforts have allowed her to support her daughter’s college education in the U.S. as well as the rest of her family in Kenya.

I am in awe of these women who actions and valuable contributions to their children inspire me to do better.

Happy Mother’s Day!
