  2. These travel accessories could only mean one thing. I'm jumping on a plane tomorrow to travel to GUATEMALA with @noondaycollection! It's hard to put into words my feelings.

I'm overwhelmed because of 
your support and your encouragement.

You are the reason I am going to meet our artisan partners in their home country and I couldn't be any more thankful!

This past December, I had an insane goal to meet and I shared it with you and YOU showed me that when I don't think about failing, God can do anything! Thank you for believing in me and tomorrow I travel to meet Noonday Collections artisan partners who make our scarves and beaded cuffs BY HAND. They make a fair wage and are providing for their families from our purchases.

I can't wait to share your stories and how you support them in the U.S.! Here's to a wild adventure! ✈️🌍💕☺️

  3. Here are some of the beautiful women from Ana's group.  They are creating scarves using a natural dying process and weaving techniques that have been past down for generations.  They are skilled craftsmen and the  scarves that you purchase are truly made with love.  These women get that #weareconnected to each other, to us and to you! If you purchase a scarf from Guatemala today I will bring you back a special gift! www.mindywelhouse.noondaycollection.com #noondayguatemala

  5. Look at this smile! 
I believe all kids should know the peace and happiness that comes when their basic needs are met and their mamas are happy. 
This little girl's mom has a job with @noondaycollection making  beautiful jewelry that creates employment in vulnerable communities around the world like where she lives in Guatemala.

St. Louis ladies, who wants to get some girls together this weekend for a trunk show? 
It really is as simple grabbing a a bottle of wine and cheese plate and opening your doors! Saturday afternoon or evening would be ideal! 
Trunk shows generate sales. Sales create dignified work. Work empowers women. Women change the world. Just ask @beyonce and @oprah  #noondayguatemala #styleyourfriends #changetheworld #GirlsWhoRunTheWorld (PC: Susan Hood Photography)

  6. "Ana has always had a strong voice and a vision for her #community. And because of her partnership with Noonday, Ana now has the power to provide consistent work in a positive work environment for the #women in her town! I have power and a loud voice simply because of where I come from – and I believe I have a responsibility to share it. The partnerships that Noonday has opened up for me as an Ambassador have provided me with the opportunity to share my power with my fellow sisters, to amplify their voices." -@erineweber

  12. Such an incredible end to our first full day in Guatemala!  So so grateful for the opportunity to spend time with other ambassadors who are clearly "cut from the same cloth" and share the vision of creating a flourishing world! #noondayguatemala #posadadesantiago

  14. We had an amazing day meeting Rosario, her daughter and artisans. "We have begun to see an impact in the community of increased wages because we are being paid well." #noondayguatemala #Rosario #erhicalfashion #weareconnected #whereyourpurchaseschangetheworld

  15. This is where it starts for @noondaycollection. Beautiful women making beautiful jewelry. Because of their partnership, everyone involved—from artisan to ambassador to the person who actually wears each piece—connects with another through a process of dignity, enrichment, empowerment & compassion. What else is there? #noondayguatemala

  23. These ladies! This is Rosario, and a few of the ladies that make Noonday Collection's beautiful seed-bead cuffs. You would not believe the lightning speed with which they pick up and thread the beads! After the design is conceptualized, Alvaro (Rosario's biz partner) converts it to a pattern of tiny colored squates on paper, not in a fancy graphic design program, but in...excel! #noondayguatemala
