Gifts that Give Back: 1000 Shillings

December1000 shillings-4

I’m super excited to kick off another fun new series I’ll be sharing throughout the month. I’ve partnered up with a few awesome brands that give back to give you guys some great gifting options outside the norm. I love giving gifts but sometimes after giving the same people the same kinds of gifts year after year I want to do something a little different. Something that means a little more. And something that can not only bring a smile to someone I love’s face but also help someone in need is just the kind of gift I want to give this year!

December1000 shillings

Today’s gift that gives back comes from 1000 Shillings. A company after my own heart as it helps impoverished women start their own small businesses with the ultimate goal of empowering them to stand alone as small business owners. The company gives the women a microgrant to start their own business that is sustainable in their home country. This gives the women the opportunity they need to become self sufficient and independent and support themselves and their families.

You can meet the ladies here and shop their products here. I chose Olivia’s copper and rope necklace for myself and love that it adds a simple and edgy statement. Another thing I love is that the copper perfectly pairs with all my favorite rose gold pieces!

I’m also super excited that 1000 Shillings sent an extra necklace to send out to one lucky Pearls & Twirls reader in exchange for your support of their company! Just be sure to follow them and enter the giveaway at the bottom of this post!
