All those who know me, know that I will always choose to purchase from a company that has a mission; I’m also a big time buy local advocate, I support my neighborhood mom and pop stores and farmer’s markets too. Buying with a purpose is a big deal to me. I will make the effort to search and find companies that sell products and use part of the proceeds to help those less fortunate.

This year, I have my own list of companies that I have personally purchased items from to support their causes. I hope you will enjoy browsing their websites, and perhaps, you too will find something meaningful to buy and at the same time give to someone in need…and please do share this info with your friends and family!

My  top “buy with a purpose” products:
Figs: threads for threads, this year they are making scrubs and donating them too.
Roma: boots for you and for all, I love these!
Nena & Co: beautiful bags that help give the gift of water and more.
LifeSaver: water systems, buy one for your own emergency preparedness and donate one to a family in need.
TOMS: one for one shoes, I buy them and gift them too.
Waka Waka: share the sun, solar charger, I gave these as gifts last Christmas.

I would love to hear which ones are your favorite companies to buy with a purpose, I’ll be happy to post them.

And of course, we are having a sale this weekend, for the first time ever, we are offering an additional 15% off clearance items! Yes, we have a bunch of new patterns lined up to welcome 2014! Go ahead, stock up for gifts, donations, and for your own babies. Enjoy!

550 intro nena n co

Nena & Co. based in Orange County, CA., is a brand new internet boutique!  The owner of the shop, Ali Hynek, a world traveler who calls herself officially a bag lady, and who is near and dear to my heart, just had her grand opening last Saturday.

Her products include beautiful hand-weaved (not printed) Day Bags and Weekender Bags crafted by skilled artisans on original Back-strap Looms.
Meet Ali from Nena & Co.As a small business owner, I love to help young entrepreneurs like Ali, and welcome them to the world wide web and online retail! Welcome Ali and Nena & Co.! Learn about Ali and her boutique here!

550 Bag Size difference

If you’re wondering which size to get, check Ali’s blog and see what she recommends. Personally, I have the Weekender which I took to our weekend getaway to Park City just last week, and I also took it to Columbus, OH to a yarn festival as a carry on. I also have the Day Bag…to carry my crochet/knit stuff around, and it works great as a diaper bag when I have my grandkids with me!

And last, Ali has agreed to offer all of Ammee’s Babies’ customers a 20% discount on all of her bags…how sweet is that! Use coupon code AMMEES20 when you visit Nena & Co., she ships all over the world too:)
