The A 21 Campaign

The human trafficking organization as far as I’m concerned. They regularly help trafficking victims find counseling, shelter, food, and job training. I donate as often as I can.

Awava

My friend and former roommate Kate von Achen opened my eyes to fair trade for the first time when she asked me to help her with her apparel company. You’ll like the way you look in aprons, dresses, and earrings produced by women in Northern Uganda—I guarantee it.

cherie-amie

Cherie Amie

The fair-trade lingerie company that I co-founded. We sell baby dolls, side-tie panties, teddies, and the comfiest boxers you’ll ever wear, and use 100 percent of our net profits to fund microloans for women worldwide.

Children of Uganda

I’m proud to serve Children of Uganda as a board member. With two decades of development work under its belt, Children of Uganda fights poverty and social injustice in its namesake country with school sponsorships for at-risk orphans and microcredit services for business entrepreneurs.

Soap Hope

My friend Salah Boukadoum started this one-of-a-kind soap and bath products company, which uses 100 percent of its net profits to fund micro-loans for women around the world. This is what inspired Cherie Amie.
