I am so happy to share a local Charlotte company that thinks and acts globally. De Anne Wingate (a Rollins grad…Go Tars) has created this amazing company where you can buy a beautiful Indian tunics and help educate a child.
The website launched last week so go shopping girls and feel good about it!
De Anne's story below…
De Anne Wingate returned from India in March of 2012, with a desire to help children living in slums around the world receive the best education possible. She saw first hand that this was the only hope for these precious little ones. Thus, the seed was planted for her non-profit, Rippled Purpose.
Each time De Anne wore the beautiful tunics from India, someone in America would ask her where they could find one. An idea was born; import the tunics from India and use the profits from each tunic to fund Rippled Purpose.
A portion of the tunics are handmade and embroidered by a group of women in need. They are paid by the piece. This small network is being taught English, how to read, write and basic finance skills. Dignity is restored. Our vision is for all the tunics to be made by these women.
