Yesterday as I stood in the webstore, I wept. This time it was tears of gratitude. You see, while the world would have us believe how divided we are, The Marketplace is a beautiful community where we embrace diversity and celebrate it. Your curiosity is infectious. I loved watching everyone listening to Primitive tell her story in Rwanda on our Zoom last Saturday. Afterwards Primitive expressed how she loved meeting everyone and how she was praying for us. When we Zoomed to Haiti last month, so many people asked Christelle questions about her artisans. Both Christi and Christelle later told me how they loved meeting our customers and how there is a beautiful community of love. I felt like a proud mama!
I wanted to take a moment to say I appreciate you and I am glad you are a part of our community. Thank you for loving our artisans so much and continuing to think of The Marketplace when you purchase gifts. I can’t even begin to share the effect this has had on our artisans. While the world would have us all believe we are divided, our community shows love in a big way. Thank you!
