March & April 2010: One Table Mercy Corps

Mercy Corps has taken a unique approach to fighting world hunger -- investing in women.

"When a woman succeeds in school or farming or business, she provides food, education and health care to her family. Her own health and well-being improves, her household becomes stronger and the entire community benefits. "

I'm not sure women are the only ones who have the opportunity to put food on the table, but I'm definitely intrigued by the idea that as a traditional symbol embodying the earth and family, women have become the focus of Mercy Corps mission One Table.

By donating 10% of Hint Jewelry's profits for the months of March and April, One Table will empower women around the world to grow healthy food and create businesses that lift their families out of extreme poverty.
