Same Sky and FEED teamed up for an exclusive evening of ethical shopping and champagne at the Matthew Williamson Store in the Meatpacking District. Guests enjoyed trying on Same Sky's exquisite glass bead bracelets and necklaces crocheted by women artisans in Rwanda, many of whom contracted HIV during the 1994 genocide. Same Sky's Founder Francine LeFrak and FEED's Founder Lauren Bush both were in attendance. 

About Same Sky

SAME SKY is a fair-trade company whose mission is to empower women worldwide and inspire a movement of women empowering women.  Founded in 2008, SAME SKY aims to be a part of the global movement lifting women out of poverty by giving them the tools to become entrepreneurs and lead
 self sustaining lives.

Our inaugural project is based in Kigali, Rwanda, a country where women have become a leading voice in the peace process and currently hold 56% of the national parliamentary seats. SAME SKY’s trade-not-aid initiative uses jewelry to effect change in Rwanda – one woman at a time. SAME SKY works with Gahaya Links a company that employs HIV+ women, all of whom are survivors of the 1994 Rwandan Genocide. These women artisans have been trained to crochet and make bracelets using our unique hand-blown glass beads. They are given a marketable skill and consistent employment, the two essential factors needed to rebuild their lives and those of their families.

SAME SKY’s glass-beaded bracelet design and socially responsible model is inspired by
Mary Fisher, an artist, author and speaker who travels the world advocating for those who share her HIV-positive status.  Mary was the first to teach artisans in Rwanda the style of crochet that we continue to use today.
