Meet Kumudini 👋
One of our gorgeous machinists who has been with us from the very beginning! Kumudini is originally from Sri Lanka and moved to Melbourne in the nineties with her husband and daughter. She loves to create new styles and nut out complicated patterns, she's an amazing cook, and loves her culture and cooking Sri Lankan food.
Kumudini is an amazing lady, and we are so lucky to have her on board and making the production for each collection happen! Remember it's so important to always ask that question - #whomademyclothes

Each year, Crabtree Corner serves more than 30,000 nutritious meals to impoverished families living in the Downtown Eastside. @YWCAMetroVan Crabtree Corner houses many programs and services under one roof to help women and families be healthier, safer, more connected and empowered to make positive choices. ❤️ We have been donating an order of fresh fruits and vegetables to the YWCA Crabtree Corner for the past 5 years. This has enabled the centre to save approximately $22k per year! Something we are so so excited about! ☺️⠀
There are many organizations doing great things out there, but Crabtree hits close to home. We love the neighbourhood we work in and wish to continue to support those who work, live and thrive here. Link in bio to learn more! ⠀

We are thrilled to announce the opening of our new store- online and soon in pop-ups around North America - where you can buy real items for refugees. You buy, we deliver; it’s like a long-distance Shipt! Want to purchase a gas stove for a Rohingya family so they can cook rice? Fantastic. They will LOVE IT. That will be $125, please. We will deliver their stove to them in a few weeks and do our best to send you a text when it arrives. This is redemptive consumerism and this is going to be fun. Text ‘act’ to 484848 (US only) or click the link in our profile to enter our store and begin shopping. #toloveistoact#socialgood#forthechildren

We had such a fun morning helping to create a play therapy room at @achievementcenters in Delray Beach! We painted and put together a lot of fun items for the kids to play with. Thanks to all the volunteers who came out to help! 🖍📚🎨 Achievement Centers For Children & Families is a community based, family focused organization dedicated to providing opportunities where under resourced children can thrive in a positive environment. Their programs support educational growth, skill building and healthy lifestyles which create a positive and lasting impact on a child.
For 35 years, Silvia (pictured center) has operated a small vegetable business in El Salvador to support her two children, Ivan and Abigail.
Over the years, Silvia has struggled with poverty, the threat of crime and violence, and Ivan’s ongoing medical issues. But with the help of the local Partners Worldwide network, she has managed to grow a successful business.
Silvia now employs herself and two others full-time. But most importantly, her success has allowed her to achieve her dream of sending Ivan and Abigail to university. “God is amazing,” Silvia remarks as she reflects on how her family has been provided for. She no longer feels like she is facing an uphill battle alone, but knows instead that God and a network of partners are by her side.
How great has this sunshine been lately? Praise God!

Tip Tuesday ✏️ | This Tip Tuesday we’re coming around with some tips on how you can make a simple difference for our environment this Earth Week! As we celebrate the privilege to live on this beautiful Earth, let’s keep in mind some awesome ways we can take care of her. 🌎♻️ Think about switching to energy efficient lightbulbs this Earth Week to reduce the amount of power you use in your house. Did you know that if every house in the USA did this, we would reduce pollution by the same amount as removing one million cars from the road? By turning off your computer overnight you could also reduce the power you’re using! Another simple tip is eating Vegan for a day - the leading cause of climate change is animal agriculture, so think about switching to one meat free day a week! #earthweek
Final layouts for our @ruckusroots#WildArt mural - yep - taping off designs in the backyard is all a part of the process 😂🎨💪🏽This project was so amazing to be a part of...we worked with local elementary school students to repurpose over 10,000 plastic bags by fusing them into beautiful, paintable animal cut-outs to form a larger mural! The piece is now installed at Eucalyptus Elementary School in Hawthorne, CA in the student cafeteria as gorgeous example of #trashformation on campus and in the community. If you wanna see more - head on over to @ruckusroots for pics of the finished mural ♻️🌎💚🦋🐠

Our long term aim is to provide necessary support for selected athletes to harness their talents and realise their full potential and use athletics to give themselves a brighter future.
Why you should support athlete this Academy
Uganda as a country benefits from this fund in several ways. We provide athletes with a platform where they can promote their talent. Our athletes are incredible role models especially for our youth, they act as ambassadors for athletics and to our country, and with consistent financial support, these athletes can continue inspiring future generations of proud Ugandans. The Ugandan Athletes Fund Academy Academy will make a difference. It's the unseen hand in the grandstand which will help Ugandan athletes live their dreams at the Ugandan Championships 2019 and also at Olympics. The contribution we make to the efforts of those who will wear the Uganda flag, is an investment in the national pride we so often take for granted. These athletes deserve our support, our good wishes and our financial backing. When they compete they make us all proud, and as a passionate fan of sport in this country, I'm delighted to endorse the Ugandan Athletes Fund Academy. Become a UAFA sponsor today.

Run202020 - Marathon 8 of 20 (WEIGHTED: 20lbs) @trainerscoalition
Into the farmlands we go! I was able to get 2-3 miles of light running in to keep warm, but not without pain. .
Besides getting whipped around by the wind as it got dark, it was a very enjoyable day. If you haven’t seen the video in my last post, multiple drivers pulled over or slowed down to see if I needed help as they saw me limping around; 4 drivers in the first 4 hours, and a total of 7 on the day attempted to help me - a complete stranger wearing a weird weight vest that looks more like a bomb vest if anything... .
With each interaction lasting less than 5 seconds, they made my day over and over again. By far, my favorite day of the journey to date. #run202020

We’re incredibly excited and grateful to share that after so many months of coordinating and contacts, our boxes of urinary catheters we’ve collected were dropped off yesterday and they’ll soon be shipped off to Nicaragua to be used by children with spina bifida! 🇳🇮 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We certainly couldn’t have done any of this without the support of #OurTribe -- our extended community online and offline who have rallied in big ways to help. 🌎
Thank you to our friends at @affordablemed and Spina Bifida Association of Central Florida for their generous donations of catheters for #ProjectLatAm ! 👏🏽 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We couldn’t have done any of this without our allies at @centrodediaapebi in Buenos Aires for wanting to collaborate with us from the beginning. Their work in Latin America is helping so many families and individuals with spina bifida and hydrocephalus. 🇦🇷 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Also, we’d like to thank GlobalEnvia for giving us advice and offering us their shipping services at a discount. 📦
We’d like to acknowledge Dr. Juan Bosco, the neurosurgeon in Managua, Nicaragua who we’ve been communicating with and who will receive the shipped catheters. His help and cooperation have been instrumental in this effort. 👨⚕️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Finally, we’d like to thank YOU for your ongoing support and encouragement with this initiative. ♥️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Latinos have the highest incidence of spina bifida out of all ethnic groups, and this is just one of many ways in which we hope to connect with our brothers and sisters in Latin America. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
While we anticipate it will take many weeks for our shipment to reach Nicaragua, we can consider Phase 1 of this project complete. Onward and upward! ¡Pa’ lante! 👊🏽 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #TheLSBProject#ItTakesAVillage#SocialGood#nonprofit#charity

Finally a club member @skinsmithsuk. Excited to start my tailored #skinconfidence treatment plan, aimed at providing long-lasting health for the skin!!! I absolutely love love looooove Skinsmiths brand integrity "business as a force for social good". The business is driven by women and claims "we employ over 350 women and 90% of our customers are women. Our purpose is to give women skin confidence". More specifically #TheConfidenceProject is an initiative targeting community projects, which empower women, providing them with the support, belief and CONFIDENCE to be GREAT and successfully participate within the social fabric; essentially with the broader potential to drive economic growth, strengthen families as well as societies. #startmyjourneyrightnow

Inspired by Luke 12:48, the Bible scripture that in part reads “For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required”, I am proud to announce my newest initiative, NikkiFreeCARES. It’s my informal way to inspire, empower and encourage others to be more philanthropic in African-American communities.
Today, we've partnered with @belovedatlanta, a community restoration for women who have been commercially sexually exploited. NikkiFreeCARES donated several barrels of plus size clothing for the women BeLoved Atlanta serves.
