UPDATE ON MARCH 15, 2018: Our match has been met and we have sponsored 1 serger and 2 industrial sewing machines! Thank you to everyone who supported this one time gift, and met this immediate need. We are now going for a 2nd serger if someone still feels compelled to give. It will be used for great things!
When I was 18, I was given a sewing machine. Well, what really happened is I took my mom's sewing machine to college with me, so she replaced it. Either way, it was a part of my story and it's going to be a part of this story too.
Last year, a sewing center began in the Philippines. It is an extension of a safe house for women and children, and provides dignified work for 5 of the women. It began as a screen printing business, but they have learned to sew which is both exciting and empowering!
They have a two home sewing machines, but their serger broke and is beyond repair. The industrial serger they need is $450.
I am looking for a few people who want to share in the joy of providing this tool and seeing a group of women blossom in their new skills. Fair+Simple will match your gift.
Will you consider contributing to this narrative?

You will receive a video clip within two short weeks of the women using their new machine! If more is given then it will be put toward two industrial sewing machines ($140).
Gifts over $100 will also receive some of the products they are making for the F+S: Collection.
