Project Liberate - Empowering Women in Haiti & the Dominican Republic - Liberate Apparel Signature Jewelry Review & Giveaway - ends 7/15 US

I was presented with a Short Signature Necklace from Liberate to facilitate this review.


Most of us are lucky that we live in a developed nation like the United States.  We women have all the opportunities at our disposal to make something of ourselves.  Women here have the access to education and obtaining job skills needed to support a family on their own if need be.  If fact, even if we don't think so, we have so much more than many women who live in poverty in other countries like the Dominican Republic and Haiti. How would you like to help a struggling woman living in poverty rise above her situation?


I was contacted by Jackie at Liberate Apparel to spread awareness of their mission to help the women of Haiti and the Dominican Republic.  Jackie, along with Melanie, co-own Liberate Apparel, and together they have developed Project Liberate in 2012.

Project Liberate is designed to empower women through job skills, education and opportunities.  The objective is to provide the necessary resources and training to assist in development of micro-businesses...Project Liberate is currently working in the Dominican Republic and Haiti...These items [clothing and jewelry] are all handmade and created by these women.

Project Liberate is operated and funded through purchases made through Liberate Apparel as well as Project Liberate parties and fundraisers.

It's fashion with the purpose of Liberating women from the bonds of poverty. -
Project Liberate



I was delighted when I received one of these precious necklaces handmade by women in Haiti.   It is a shorter version (approx. 24") of Liberate's Signature Necklace.  It is a beautiful beaded necklace made from recycled paper beads from the tent cities of Haiti and antique ceramic beads.  It comes in four different colors: multicolor, purple, black and white, and blue which is the color I chose to review. The colors are just perfect for wearing with a top and jeans.  It really dresses up my outfits. This is a quality necklace designed beautifully. 


There is a lovely selection of Signature Jewelry necklaces and earrings to choose from at Liberate Apparel.  They do stock a few clothing selections also made by women in Haiti and the Dominican Republic.  My favorite is the Bow Dress made in Ponte de Roma fabric.  With every purchase you make at Liberate Apparel, part of the money goes to help a woman or a family climb out of poverty.  Liberate Apparel gives back a portion of everything sold directly towards providing living wage jobs and opportunities for parents.  All jewelry is 100% Handmade in Haiti.


Before Project Liberate and Liberate Apparel, Jackie King and Melanie Hunley, help to just feed the people of Haiti and the Dominican Republic.  Yet, they realized that they needed to help women break free of the bonds of poverty, to teach them a way of making money for their families, to give them pride in themselves.

   
To get some beautiful jewelry or clothing, shop Liberate Apparel.  You can also find Liberate Apparel on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and Instagram.



To help bring more awareness to Project Liberate, one person will win a necklace like mine, the shorter 24" Signature Necklace!  This giveaway is open to US residents only, and will end on July 15, 2013.  Due to a technicality, this giveaway was extended an extra week.
