celebrating uganda & noonday’s 5th birthday!

Five years ago Jessica Honegger & her family were preparing to adopt a child from Rwanda. Jessica and her husband needed a way to raise funds for the adoption journey and a friend who had been living in Uganda gave her some jewelry made by an Artisan in Uganda, Jalia. Jessica sold the jewelry to her friends and family in Austin at the first Noonday Collection Trunk Show. Soon Jessica began to dream of using Noonday to help other adoptive families bring their children home. Thousands of miles away, Jalia dreamed of using her gifts as a jewelry designer to create opportunity for women in her community. But without a connection to a marketplace, Jalia and her husband were struggling to provide for their own children. When Jessica connected with Jalia, they empowered one another to use their gifts to launch businesses.

Five years later, Jalia and her team have created jobs for hundreds of people in her community and Jessica and her team have built Noonday into one of the fastest growing businesses in the United States. Together, we’re making an incredible impact in communities all across the world.

i also wanted to tell you a little about world adoption day~

AdoptTogether is a non-profit platform helping families raise funds to pay for adoption costs. Over the last 3 years, AdoptTogether has helped 1,000 families raise over $6m to cover their adoption expenses and bring their children home. Last year, AdoptTogether launched #WorldAdoptionDay, a worldwide celebration of adoption. 11,000 people in 15 countries posted photos of themselves with a smile on their hand and the hashtag #WorldAdoptionDay. This year, #WorldAdoptionDay is November 9 and Noonday Collection is going to be a part! We’re hoping to host 1,000 trunk shows to raise money in support for adoptive families.

We designed this exclusive bracelet for #WorldAdoptionDay! For every bracelet sold, we’ll donate $10 to an adoption fund that will help one family get closer to bringing their child home. Every family that has an AdoptTogether profile and a Trunk Show to benefit their adoption will be eligible for a chance to win the fund.

you may pre-order your bracelet now & they’ll ship out beginning october 1st. we only have a limited supply so when they’re gone, they’re gone.
