WHAT: On Tuesday, April 8th from 6pm to 8pm, Madewell on Fifth Avenue will play host to an ethical shopping event featuring SAME SKY Rwanda jewelry, which empowers women in Africa by giving them a hand up, not a handout. SAME SKY provides jobs globally for women struggling to lift themselves out of poverty and was founded with a vision to provide the dignity of work to all women under the same sky.
During the event, SAME SKY will showcase their latest spring and summer color collection within their signature line of Fabric Wrap bracelets ($30-$40), which are all crocheted by the artisans in Africa and are currently available in Madewell stores. In addition to purchasing products that help empower women artisans, guests will also be given the opportunity to shop Madewell’s spring collection and receive an exclusive 20% off all Madewell purchases over $125.
WHO: SAME SKY founder Francine LeFrak will be on hand for this special event. Guests are invited to shop Madewell and SAME SKY to the beat of feel-good music while enjoying complimentary drinks and treats.
WHY: 100% of all net-proceeds from the sale of SAME SKY’s jewelry go to employing more women artisans and expanding into other regions. SAME SKY jewelry is worn by many celebrities including Meryl Streep, Alicia Keys, Fergie, Queen Latifah, Goldie Hawn, Jessica Alba, Ben Affleck, Akon and Victor Cruz, among others and retails in a variety of price points making it the perfect fashion accessory.
