"Kids don't share." Hmm 🤔 We know some who do. This holiday season, gift a GiveMeTap bottle to someone you love and we'll bring clean water to kids who won't fight over it.
We're in gratitude mode and have nice sales on both websites (UK and US) until December 2nd.
Spend the next few days with your family and friends. Make great memories. Laugh until you cry. Share a good meal (and a few drinks!) with the people you love. Our sale will still be going on after Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
We're following our own advice and are going offline for the next few days. Happy Thanksgiving y'all! Over and out. ✌🏾#thanksgiving2017#sharingiscaring#cleanwater#cleanwaterforall

All the goodies from @welldotca today!! First, major props for the fact that they shipped to me from across the country and STILL managed to deliver a day early 👏🏼 (can you tell I’ve already been dealing with infuriating holiday shipping delays?!! lol..) This was my first time trying @leesghee and WOW!! Did not disappoint!! I love being able to support an up n’ coming artisan-run business 😍 @giddyyoyo makes my favourite raw cacao powder EVER, and a shout out to the awesome gals @thelaundrytarts for these high quality dryer balls that I can’t wait to add essentials to and toss into my next load..Their all natural laundry detergent is seriously legit too, FYI. I took a moment when unboxing this order to appreciate that, outside of the badass @bulletproof Brain Octane, this was an all-Canadian, all women-run line up 🙌🏼🇨🇦📦📫 When you’re prepping for you Black Friday & Cyber Monday shopping this weekend, please consider supporting small, local (where possible) businesses & artisans with your patronage #votewithyourdollar#shoplocal#canadianmade#purchasewithpurpose#integrity

For the last couple of days, I’ve been thinking about how to get in on the Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, Cyber Monday deals.
What could I offer? A discount like everyone else? A gift with every purchase?
Sales and offers don’t necessarily feel inauthentic to the ACE Brand, however mindless consumerism does.
That is why ACE will donate 10% of every purchase to the American Indian Community House (AICH) in NYC from today until November 27.
Buying The Daniel this weekend isn’t just about getting a handy, minimalist, vegan, and eco-friendly backpack. It is taking a fabricated holiday opaqued by consumerism and honoring Native Americans.
Gift yourself a little love, get yourself a backpack you can really be thankful for (and proud of), and actually pay it forward. So those in greater need can have something to be grateful for, too.
Shop #TheDaniel backpack by clicking the link in bio.
Learn more about the AICH by heading to blog.livelikeanace.com!
We absolutely love @thegivingkeys Go on over to their IG to watch a quick video about the makers of these keys! When you purchase a GIVING KEY, you are helping someone transition out of poverty and homelessness! It's not just a key, with a word stamped on it! #purchasewithpurpose#thegivingkeys#theoriginal
Mark your calendars for December 14!!
Spend a wintry evening at the Traffic Zone Art Gallery, enjoying food, art, and shopping that makes a difference in the world with every purchase. The Good Night Market is a dusk inspired pop-up market showcasing local, socially conscious brands, businesses, and makers. .
The event is free and family friendly. Link in the bio for more details on featured brands and makers ✨🎁 🌍
We all know those people with the perfectly festive homes completely decked out in holiday passion. The poinsettias, the pine cones neatly arranged, strings of lights lining the outside of the house & draped elegantly around the stockings on the mantel.
The smells of warmth & cozy comfort bringing a smile to all who enter. Joy feels the air so thick you can reach out and touch it.
For us normal folks, though, we can instead diffuse some Holiday Joy EO and pretend that we spent all that money and time decorating and being festive. All the smells we love of the holly jolly without all the fuss and work. + it's portable! So you can take the smells with you!
Arborvitae comes with it today only! A great compliment to the holiday feel with it's woody feel. It aids in warding off sickness that comes with the holiday close quarters coziness and can be used for skin conditions, wood polish and insect repellent, since lots of critters try to seek refuge in the warmth of your home on these colder days and nights.
Normally $62 retail for both, but TODAY ONLY, you get both for only $24.50 wholesale/$32.67 retail.

A Thanksgiving Reflection: As a team, we make giving thanks a priority. In our area of the world, health, wellness and wealth are hard to come by. Sadness, death and poverty often seem to overwhelm us. One victory is often followed by a series of losses, and we regularly find ourselves standing before giants who seem impossible to overcome. But, this practice of giving thanks does something to our souls. It reorients us, taking our focus off of our grizzly giants and placing it onto a God who is filled with infinite love. Giving thanks helps us to see the good in the midst of evil, to celebrate the light overcoming dark corners, and to remember that love always wins.
It is in these moments of gratitude that hope rises up. In the spaces of thanks giving, God restores our souls and gives us courage to press on in love. So, on this thanksgiving eve, we count our blessings again. We are thankful for such an awesome group of customers, without whom Ziyada would not be possible. You guys rock! We are thankful to have the opportunity to work with and do life with such an amazing team of men and women. We are thankful for the many people who have volunteered their time and homes to advertise, ship or sell Ziyada products. We are thankful for the grace to watch our artisans grow and flourish, and to see the transformation in their lives and families. We are thankful for little victories, like riotous laughter in the child care room, shawl-clad, smiling artisans on a winter day, or tomato chutney stuffed bitter gourd when it is supposed to be kaddu day at lunch.

@zingaracollection has taken my love of glassons linen-like pieces and created a place that sums up my entire style in one simple ethically made, online store. @zingaracollection is a small business based on the South Coast of Australia that I've been in love with since I came across their Instagram many months prior. As I'm heading off to Rarotonga in a few weeks (any tips/places to visit let me know) I finally bought some of their pieces myself. When they arrived they were packaged in paper (no plastic, yay for small wins with postage) and also came with a handwritten note alongside a fabric cover bag and their ethics printed on pieces of material attached to the garments. It's experiences like this, where companies really take all parts of creating a business and do it mindfully and with intention that I love so much and will continue to purchase from (when I NEED new clothing, not due to impulses -although let me tell you there are many). I've written a more details blog post about @zingaracollection and their ethics, so hop on over to the link in bio to read all about one of my all time favourite labels 🌿🌎💚 (Also, they have a 40% off sale that ends today, so if you love them as much as I do, go check them out ✨)
6 Surprises in the Apparel industry
Mindy & Kellie, both seasoned apparel designers, sat down and discussed what surprised them when they entered the clothing industry. Having both been educated in the apparel industry, the following list is what STILL surprised them when they started working in the real world after school. We hope you can learn from this if you are newer to the industry and get a head start with this information.

We're entering the biggest shopping week of the year, and since we’re so new, we were tempted to offer discounts & deals to encourage new customers to shop My Sanctuary Shop this holiday season. But it just didn’t feel right.
We can choose to be part of the problem or part of the solution -- and thoughtless consumption just doesn’t feel good. Instead of mindlessly shopping sales this Black Friday and Cyber Monday, let’s stop and think about WHAT we buy, WHERE we buy it, and WHY we are buying it.
So, My Sanctuary Shop will not be participating in the madness that is Black Friday or Cyber Monday. The mad dash to slash prices & purchase more, more, more pretty much goes against our whole mission!
Instead, we encourage you to choose to #shopsmall when purchasing gifts for your friends and family. There are so many amazing ethical businesses -- shops where you can connect with the person who made the item, know that the maker is getting paid fairly, and find gifts that give back. I strongly believe we vote with our dollars and the holiday season is a great time to cast your vote for the kind of world you want to live in.
What kind of world will you choose? 🌲
One basic. All that power.
This tee will light up a school 💡you in?
