Today’s post is sponsored by Zazzle. All opinions and love for the project are my own.
Handmade items and gifts hold a special and warm place in my heart. I also find that supporting local businesses or businesses that offer an opportunity to better others are far more rewarding than any other purchase. So when I was contacted by Zazzle to feature their new Zazzle Heart designs and collection, I was overjoyed to share the message of Zazzle Heart and how impactful it is.
Most of you know may Zazzle as the ultimate hub for personalized gifts, products, and decor. Which it totally is! But Zazzle Heart has collaborated with Ubuntu in order to give back. Ubuntu is a South African word that means “I am because we are” and has always been at the core of their organization.
“Our products give back to health and education programs in Kenya, creating jobs and providing impact in communities on the other side of the world.The Ubuntu model creates a new cycle of livelihood between social business and non-profit growth. The earned and charitable income from Ubuntu Enterprise feeds directly into the well-being of our social impact initiatives.”
So where does Zazzle come in?
ZAZZLE provides the latest technology and manufacturing needed for customization, turning dreams into realities.
ARTISTS and DESIGNERS from all over the world are able to utilize the Zazzle’s platform to upload and sell their designs.
Which is where I came in to design this custom leather journal. It features specific details relevant to the Kenyan culture.
The hard ridge represents the longitude of Maai Mahiu village in Kenya and celebrates the scars that cut through and surround the Rift Valley.
The blue and orange beads represent warmth, energy, and friendship. Beadwork plays an important role in the Maasai Culture.
And the last part of the formula?
YOU join as the final, and most important, step in this global ecosystem, by customizing and purchasing from The Adventure Collection!
My husband has requested one for Christmas and I am thinking that these would make great gifts for a lot of people. Custom gifts to make a difference with Zazzle Heart? Count me in!
