Emerge Global was one of four featured charities in the Boston Phoenix yesterday! Perfect timing for our Boston sale which will be happening at the MIT Student Center tomorrow, Wednesday July 15th, from 10-2pm.
Hope to see you there!
“Jet-Setting Fashionista If you pretend your wallet isn’t affected by the economic meltdown, never cease your quest for the perfect accessory, and have as obscene a number of stamps on your passport as you do shoes in your closet … Then join Emerge Global. Founded by an MIT wunderkind with a serious knack for jewelry design, this Boston- and Sri Lanka-based organization produces and sells unique little baubles with a purpose beyond decorating your wrists. Emerge Global partners with a Sri Lankan home for mothers who were victims of incest or rape to teach women how to craft jewelry and become entrepreneurs. The results are one-of-a-kind beaded pieces made even more beautiful by the inspiring stories behind them.
