The Gift That Gives Back

new-day-for-children

Our Hands For Hope is built upon empowering women all over the world in at-risk communities.  One cause we are most passionate about is helping the girls and young women who have been rescued from sex trafficking.  One organization we have teamed up with this holiday season is a New Day For Children based in California.

A New Day For Children offers safe houses, education, medical and therapeutic help to American young girls ages 10 and up who have been rescued. They also offer mentorship, job placement, and support to furthering their education.

They are currently working on building two new facilities. One for girls from 10-17 and the other 18 and up who don’t have safe homes to return to after rehabilitation.

So for this holiday season, “Give the gift that gives back”.

A portion of all purchases from Our Hands For Hope now until December 31, 2015 will go to

Behind the Essence of NapaStyle

By: Alicia Fischer, Communications @ Our Hands For Hope

A few weeks ago the team was excited to get a special invitation from NapaStyle
to be featured in their September catalog.

NapaStyle is a store based out of Yountville dedicated to showcasing the essence of Napa Valley and the uniqueness of living in wine country. It is brought to life by the mind and culinary mastery of Chef Michael Chiarello whose cooking revolves around the simplicity of wine country living. NapaStyle features items from food to cooking accessories and decor that encompass what it means to live in Napa Valley, and we are thrilled to be included as one of those items!

With harvest happening around the valley, these knits and colors pair perfectly for the long, increasingly cooler nights that lay ahead as we celebrate the 2013 harvest season.
