It's officially time for spring cleaning. A glorious day spent organizing, sorting and piling. If you're like me, you always have a stash of old t-shirts in the giveaway pile. Well, this year put those t-shirts to good use and give them to the Open Arms Shop in Austin, TX.
Open Arms provides refugee women in America a living wage, necessary income for food, shelter and housing. Regardless of their education, most refugee women in America end up trapped in an unbreakable cycle of poverty. Open Arms places these women and their families on an upward path of integration and prosperity.
The shop measures success against a triple bottom line that is economic (employ), ecologic (engage) and social (enjoy). I'd say that's a bottom line we could all learn to live by.
