More Than a Necklace {Noonday Collection Giveaway}

Welcome aboard the  Noonday Blog Train!   If you are riding along and came from Mattie's, I'm so glad you're here.


It's been about four months since I started as a Noonday Ambassador.  Although this investment was a tad impulsive in nature,  the journey actually started 3 years ago in Ndola, Zambia. It was during my time there that my heart was turned toward the distinction of charity versus education and self-reliance.  It was then that I realized that well intended charity can sometimes cause more harm than good. 

Noonday Collection uses fashion and design to create economic for the vulnerable. But what does that mean? What does it look like? What exactly IS Noonday?
