Walmart Empowering Woment I’ve always thought it was my duty as a human to care for others. I try to make most of my decisions in life based on more than just me. I want to consider others, the earth, and more. Thankfully companies make that easier when they offer an easy way for me to make my purchases make a difference for others.

Walmart’s Empowering Women Together program is part of their Global Women’s Economic 5-year commitment which goes through 2016. They plan to source $20 billion dollars from women-owned business and they’ve made some of those products available on a special website.

The Empowering Women Together on Walmart.com website is a place to shop for handcrafted items from all over the world. These items include jewelry, paper mache, home décor and accessories, apparel, iPad and laptop cases, specialty foods like coffee and tea and more. These woman are creating these in Rwanda, Kenya, Nepal, Cambodia, Haiti, Canada, and the US. In fact, there are more than 19 businesses from 9 countries currently selling their wares on the site – that’s over 900 handmade items for yourself or as a gift!

Your purchase from the site helps support these women and families make a better life for themselves. It feels good to give back!
