Mary gave up her reputation, becoming pregnant and giving birth to the Savior while she was still only engaged.
The wise men gave gifts to baby Jesus.
Jesus gave up His life, and died on a cross to save mankind.

Your purchase of a fashionABLE scarf creates sustainable business for women in Africa. Our commitment as a non-profit is to the development of people — fashionABLE works with women who have been exploited due to the effects of poverty. So, when you purchase a scarf you are providing jobs, and then we send the profits back to holistically rehabilitate more women. (PS. Their scarves are ADORABLE. I want them all.)
The vision of this movement is two-fold. First, we want to give a voice to the voiceless and oppressed all across the world. We’re depending on you to tell the individual stories that each shirt embodies.
