Before you shop online through your favorite store, check out UNICEF Market and lend your support to help artisans, as well as children around the world.
Do you know about the UNICEF Market?
Novica, the National Geographic affiliated fashion and home décor website is excited to announce the launch of a new website it is involved with, the UNICEF Market! Most of the products are the NOVICA products you have come to know and love. Novica is so excited about this partnership with the U.S. Fund for UNICEF because every order on the new website directly impacts children through UNICEF’s global programs.
What types of items can you purchase from the UNICEF Market? Moreover, what exactly is the UNICEF Market? Let me elaborate:
“UNICEF Market was conceived as an online store for people shopping for unusual, well-designed and beautifully crafted items.
In looking for a way to make UNICEF Market a reality, they found the perfect partner, NOVICA. Founded in 1999, NOVICA works directly with artisans through their regional offices in Asia, Africa and Latin America. They have built a proprietary infrastructure enabling purchases to go from the country of origin directly to the consumer.
With the aid of NOVICA’s procurement, logistics and technology capabilities, UNICEF Market is able to offer these handmade products.”
The item that I reviewed was the Hand Carved Wood Sculpture entitled “Melded Hearts”. Fall head over heels in love with this charming double heart sculpture. This Indonesian handcrafted work of art, presented by Bali’s Eka, will be cherished for years to come. The perfect romantic gift for your loved one or anniversary gift for that special couple. The sculpture is made entirely of Suar wood and weigh 0.5 pounds. It measures 12.25” high by 6” wide by 1.4” deep. I intend to give this to my husband for Father’s Day. Since both my husband and I love any item, more particular wood items, that carry a heart theme, this is perfect, as I know he will love it. The craftsmanship of this sculpture is stunning. Moreover, this purchase provided enough polio vaccine to immunize seven (7) children against polio.
Unique to the NOVICA site and especially the UNICEF Market is the fact that you can follow the artisan that created the specific item you are interested in, as well as viewing their profile. You can also find other products that the individual artisan has listed on the site.
In addition to UNICEF Market customers getting great handcrafted products, part of the proceeds goes to both the talented artisans and to help UNICEF save and protect children.
