AMAZING! From the jewelry, to the baby clothes, to the home goods, and MORE, Shopping for a Change has it all! Gorgeous, one of kind items lovingly handcrafted by artisans from around the world! I’ve found that their products make wonderful gifts for family members, friends and clients. The customer service is impeccable, and the products are true works of art. I have been stopped numerous times on the street by complete strangers asking where I got the gorgeous, Tagua Bib necklace. But the best part of Shopping for a Change, is that the funds they raise are used to transform lives around the world. As a buyer, I am excited to know that one half of the net proceeds from my purchase directly benefit the communities in which these artisans live and work, while the other half goes to US, non-profit organizations of my choice. As a result, Shopping for a Change is the first place I turn to when looking for something truly special, and unique. I recently purchased the teak cutting board, and copper cheese tools for a wedding gift. The newlyweds were blown away by the exquisite materials used in the crafting of these items. I am proud to give a gift that is not only beautiful, but helping empower people all around the world.
I ordered a wonderful wooden bowl from Shopping for a Change. The experience has been wonderful. Stacey kept me informed on the progress of my order and ensured I had complete satisfaction. I recommend Shopping for a Change to help make a difference in the lives of those in need. Thank you Stacey!!
I ordered a beautiful wrap (at the last minute) to wear to my daughters wedding. I am currently at our cottage 2 hours north of Toronto ( live in Charlotte, NC) Trying to figure out how to get it in time was a challenge. Stacie was amazing - texted me with updates and options until we sorted it out. I can't remember when I last had such amazing service. I would shop here everyday if I could. Can't wait till I get my wrap!
I absolutely love Shopping for Change. I am complimented all the time on the beautiful products I purchase for myself and have gained kudos from friends for the great gifts they receive from me as a result of Shopping for Change. When I had an issue, their support staff was great and personable. I am proud to support such a great organization. Angelina
I contacted Shopping for a Change to assist with client gifts for my hotel over the holidays. I wanted to go in a unique direction providing our clients something useful and gender neutral that they would really like while also giving back to the artisans in their country and a local organization of my choice. Shopping for a Change provided me with several options, and I chose a beautiful bamboo bowl with our company logo engraved on the back which my clients absolutely loved. They also designed a card that we included in the packaging which described the origin of the bowl, and who the proceeds benefited both internationally and domestically. It was the most well received corporate gift of my career and I can't wait to purchase more from Shopping for a Change.
Such a wonderful organization. From the people that shop for a change to the volunteers to the board, and of course, their founder, Stacey, this organization has all the right pieces to change the world.
Shopping for a change is the kind of charity I love! They empower people to start their own businesses and become self sufficient. They then sell high quality products from these businesses on their web site. I've purchased many of them for myself, family, and friends. They make great gifts too!
Shopping for a change is a unique kind of nonprofit in how it aids those in developing countries. It makes it so that artisans in these countries can feed their children and plan for the future instead of always worrying about the present. My experience with this nonprofit has shown me the positive impact that a customers purchase can have - from contributing to paying for a year of high school for teens in Swaziland to helping women who have escaped sex trafficking in the Philippines - Shopping for a Change empowers people all over the world. Not only are the people I've worked with in this nonprofit some of the kindest and most caring people I've met, but there is a definite feeling of purpose. Everything that is done is done to try to make the organization the best it can possibly be with countless hours poured into every detail. Ultimately, I would highly recommend Shopping for a Change as it is a nonprofit that strives towards and succeeds at making the world a brighter place.
I read about Shopping for a Change in my college alumni magazine and I'm so glad I've discovered this fabulous charity. The items they sell are top quality and they're delivered quickly. I love them so much I posted about them on Facebook and have told all my friends. You can't go wrong supporting their wonderful work.
Working with SFAC this year was a pleasure! Stacey always finds the balance between professionalism and passion, and I fully support her efforts to make a change in these countries, one person at a time. SFAC has nursed my want to contribute to other communities abroad in order to help them raise themselves up out of poverty. It has also given me an opportunity to donate to local community efforts. If there's any organization could contribute all my time into, it would be this one.
