YES, we are out of quite a few sizes of our best selling Give a Damn tees! But fear not! We should have more in by the end of the month. If you have been eyeing the tee and we do have your size I would recommend snatching it up quickly! They've been selling like hot cakes at recent vendor fairs.
Give a damn about fair trade? Fair trades values people, economic empowerment, and the environment. Businesses, farms, and producers are able to apply for fair trade certification which allows a third party to verify their dedication to these values and fair trade principals.
Unfortunately this past month Haiti has experienced a lot of suffering and rioting. Haiti is near and dear to my heart because I went on a study abroad trip to this beautiful country. Here I witnessed hardworking people, beautiful souls who love unconditionally, poverty, and joyful smiles among suffering. That's why a lot of Give a Damn Goods brands benefit Haiti.
Okay so honest thoughts....these leather cord holders are a key part of staying organized! A cord traveler wasn't something I necessarily would have gone out and bought for myself, but these bad boys are so useful! Once I started using the Leather Cord Traveler I got hooked. It truly makes a difference in keeping your chargers and cords organized.
Small business owners are people too! And for that reason I'm taking a little break for a week. I'll be on vacation and since I'm a one woman show that means there will be a bit of a pause in shipping out orders.
On Valentine’s Day give chocolate made with love. Sadly the cocoa industry is known for slavery & unethical treatment of workers. With fair trade chocolate we can give treats made with love & certified by a third party verifying that the brand is treating farmers fairly. I've tried chocolates from all three brands below and they are sure to satisfy chocoholics everywhere.
If you've been looking for a fair trade coffee brand to try our Singing Rooster brand is amazing. I discovered this brand while studying abroad in Haiti and have been hooked ever since. So of course when I launched Give a Damn Goods I wanted to show my support & carry their products.
Going out to celebrate Valentine's Day? Spruce up your outfit with some meaningful accessories! Here's what Give a Damn Goods is loving. BRANDED Collective's unique earrings are made of lightweight copper and aluminum ethically crafted by survivors of human trafficking.
