Now that I’ve shared with you about this nonprofit that has stolen my heart (missed that post? read about it here) I wanted to show you how HandUp Global Good’s office design came together. Here’s the original design board I created for it.
I was going for a modern global feeling that was also light and bright. We did make a few changes along the way that worked well for the function of the office, but I was so pleased to see how it turned out.
Please take note of the amazing original old wooden floors! How gorgeous are those?? The gallery wall above the desks includes functional pieces like a dry erase board and a cork board but also some inspiration like this map of Haiti and a few prints from Lindsay Letters. One says “Live Creatively” and another one “Be Brave.”
This company is giving sustainable work to former street children in Haiti that are aging out of an orphanage. The young men are skilled artisans being paid a fair wage to make beautiful bracelets. Read more about it (and even see a short video if you want!) on their website here.
Everyone I know who works stateside for HUGG is incredibly passionate and has been to Haiti several times. They know these hard working young men personally and have come to love them dearly.
Its been a huge blessing to me to discover this company and I knew I wanted to be involved somehow.
They don’t currently have necklaces for sale, but I have it on good authority that there are more beautiful things coming… check out this gorgeousness they have on display!
This is a fantastic company doing great things. Looking for some meaningful Christmas gifts that can make a difference in someone’s life this year? Look no further than HandUp Global Goods. I’ve already been checking a few things off my list. 🙂 Happy Monday!
