Today's guest is Shelley Jones!
Shelley Jones is the founder of dignify, an online boutique that sells handmade blankets that are made by women who are survivors of exploitation in Bangladesh. She is a wife, a mom, and a creative who is using what she has to work out shalom in her business, in the way she shops, and in the [online] world.
Today we talk about:
How she kinda tumbled into founding a fair trade company
How she loves to connect the stories of the women who shop Dignify to the women who make the blankets
How she LOVES, LOVES, LOVES Father Greg Boyle from Homeboy Industries
How she uses what she has in her hands right now to be a peacemaker.
Shelley gave us a code for free shipping when we visit her site:
Use the code: SHALOM
through Nov. 26th for free shipping
Our Shalom Steps are:
1: Slow Down/ Calm Down
2: Make a List and start small
3: Shop Fair trade for women who cannot afford it for themselves
Shelley is a compelling and fun writer. Here are my favorite posts from the "Shop Good" blog.
