HHP’s 3rd Annual Fundraiser was huge success. With the generous support of our attendees and donors, we raised important funds to support HHP’s artisans and partners around the world.
 
This incredible generosity will truly transform lives and provide a pathway out of poverty.
 
Many people asked us how to get involved with HHP’s important mission. Whether it is introducing our fair trade practice products to your friends or business associates or donating directly, we are so grateful for any information, time and talent you can spare. We also offer volunteer activities at our new production facility location, which is opening soon. Volunteering is an enriching experience for company events, team building, bridal showers, and more. You may also consider a warehouse shopping event for your meetup, religious or other social group. 
 
We will be sharing more information about these opportunities over the next few weeks.

At the fundraiser we were also proud to showcase the story of Shanika Smith. Shanika overcame incredible personal and professional obstacles to establish herself as Production and Fulfillment Director, and an integral member of the HHP team. You can watch Shanika’s inspiring story here.

With your support, HHP can continue providing mentorship and a career path for individuals with skills and passions just waiting to shine.

#111ActsOfService to #LIFTCOMMUNITIES: May 2017

Posted on

Dear Friends,

We need to protect and support our most vulnerable people and communities. HHP is able to do that through our products that provide a pathway out of poverty, and we love supporting organizations that share our mission.

So for this month’s act of service we’ll be wearing our red noses and making a donation in support of Red Nose Day, a charity that has raised over $1 billion in 25 years to support projects that ensure kids are safe, healthy, educated, and empowered.

The goal of our #LIFTCOMMUNITIES campaign is to create a social movement where everyone gives, volunteers or supports instinctively at least once a month. Join us this month by wearing a red nose on May 25th and supporting this amazing charity!
