Hi and thanks for visiting my page!
I used to work for GoodWeave and it's a charity near and dear to my heart.
During my time at GoodWeave and while visiting child workers in Bangladesh I saw the terrible conditions an estimated 250,000 children are forced to work in weaving rugs sold here in the US.
GoodWeave believes that children belong in classrooms, not toiling on carpet looms.
Their mission is to stop child labor in the carpet industry and to replicate its market-based approach in other sectors. They fulfill this mission by working at every step along the supply chain -- from a rug factory in Nepal all the way to a department store in New York.
This organization rescues individual children like 11-year-old Maya who was forced to work to repay her father's loan, while addressing the root causes of child labor that currently enslaves 250,000 in the rug industry.
Will you help weave a brighter future for some of the world's most vulnerable children? To give you a sense, a gift of $50 helps sponsor a community-based education for one rescued boy or girl.
On behalf of Maya, who is now a happy and disciplined student, and all the children your contribution will touch, thank you.
