Recently I was asked if I'd be interested in featuring a rather spectacular line of products from the Nomi Project. When I said yes, I was very generously sent a sample from their Buy her Bag not her Body line, the padded laptop case (shown below). I was thrilled to receive the case, will be thrilled to use it, but honestly Buy Her Bag not Her Body and The Nomi Network are subjects I'd love to write about even without seeing how great the sample is.
Instead of just reviewing the laptop case, I'm going to start by saying please go to the website and have a look, read about the project, buy something, donate or get involved. Why?
First reason: the Nomi Network works to prevent trafficking of women and helps survivors recover and prosper by providing economic opportunities through training, product development, and marketing support.
Second reason: by purchasing one of these products you are helping to provide that support through fair wages and training.
reason: the bags, cases, totes etc not only look lovely and help
support the Nomi project, but they are made using recycled rice bags
which helps make the earth happy as well.
these products are well made and super sturdy, so you're doing yourself a
favor too. Help others and help yourself to a great new & unique
Fruit Laptop case perhaps. Plus the t-shirts are super cool. I love,
love, love the everyday totes and elephant tees.
The Nomi Network is truly impressive in that they take a holistic approach to helping survivors of trafficking recover and prosper. In addition to giving them economic tools through training, scholarships and supporting shelters for underage women (remember that many of these women are sold as children), the Nomi Network's Project Beauty offers emotional support to help the recovery of their spirits. So, now, again I'm going end with a request to visit The Nomi Network's site and to not just look over the really fabulous line of goods, but to please read all you can about what they do and then do something to help, even if it is just to buy one of those super cute Children's Elephant T's or a Mermaid Tote. See the full line of Buy Her Bag Not Her Body products at their online shop, or scroll down for a few of my favorites.
