Interesting to hear how one woman chose to make a difference with her $2000 tax refund. Very doable. ( )

Another good cause. Interesting and impressive how the author got involved in helping women around the world and very motivating. Couldn't finish the book, however, as the stories were just too much reading. ( )

Start small, dream big, change lives— how one woman harnessed the power of fair trade to help women in poverty help themselves

Seven years ago, Stacey Edgar had a $2,000 tax return and a deep desire to help provide economic security for women in need. She knew that of the 1.3 billion people living on less than $1 per day, seventy percent are women. What she didn’t have was a business plan. Or a passport. But that didn’t stop her from creating a socially conscious business that has helped poor women in five continents feed their families and send their children to school.

Global Girlfriend has since grown into a multi-million dollar enterprise that specializes in handmade, fairly traded, ecoconscious apparel, accessories, and items made by women all over the world. Global Girlfriends is Stacey’s inspiring story of following her convictions, as well as her passionate argument for simple actions we can all take to eliminate extreme poverty. Stacey Edgar refused to be paralyzed by the size of world poverty; she started by taking several small steps, personal responsibility firmly in hand, and never looked back.
