Every Artisan, Every Customer, Every Fundraiser, and Every Supporter of Mango + Moose has linked arms to make a Collective Impact! We are truly connected when we are working together to ensure that our world is one where all people from every tribe and every nation have the opportunity to thrive.
When you choose to purchase with purpose you are contributing to a sustainable income stream for the makers. This is key to combating poverty and for family preservation. Mango + Moose intentionally chooses Artisan Organizations that have a holistic approach, working for the betterment of individuals, families and communities. Allowing everyone the opportunity for a flourishing future.
Social media has brought global issues into our everyday lives. World Vision was once the forerunner introducing us, through television, to the plight of others. The Internet has now brought awareness to environmental issues, hunger, human trafficking, unemployment, aids, inequality, racial and religious tensions and a myriad other pressing injustices.
Ignorance is no longer possible and it is certainly no longer bliss.
The question then becomes “What can I do about it?” This is not such an easy question to answer. After all, we are plagued with doubt about our ability to make a difference, recognizing that we are just one person. How can we possibly begin to take action when the problems are so big? It gets pretty over whelming quite quickly. But if turning away is no longer an option that our conscience will allow then what can we do?
Mango + Moose has joined the fight against poverty, against slavery, and against inequality. Many times the difficulties the economically poor face can be linked together, disadvantage and vulnerability making people easy targets of victimization and exploitation.
We offer a way for each of us to join in standing for sustainable development and making a lasting impact. Mango + Moose offers products that are created and developed through ethical practices. Because we purchase from Artisan co-op's and social enterprises we are not only saying YES we will stand with you for a better future but we are showing it with our actions.
Through this collective position every customer is a world changer working to bring awareness and revolution to the global market place. Everyone can feel good about their purchase knowing that it directly impacts Artisans, providing a living wage, dignified work, and opportunity.
We believe sustainable income is key to combating economic poverty as it allows Artisan groups to invest in education, health, shelter, and nourishment.
Together we see hope restored!
