About

After traveling the world for a number of years following college graduation, Kelly Jackson wanted to find a way to give back to the communities that opened her eyes to the beauty across the planet. She joined Global Goods Partners, a fair-trade nonprofit organization that works with more than 30 women-led artisan groups in 20 countries to showcase beautiful handmade products that support local community development initiatives. Products sold on Global Goods Partners’ e-commerce site and select fair-trade retailers include accessories, jewelry, toys, bags and more. “Everyone wants to help in some way, but that can be a very daunting task,” Jackson admits. “With Global Goods Partners, you can shop and do good. You can buy gorgeous gifts, and tell the story and the impact that they’re making. It’s a simple way to make a difference in communities across Asia, Africa and the Americas.”
