It’s the thread of caring that connects us,
woman to woman, and makes us powerful.
In the midst of a beautiful world, people are hurting.
In places both far away and right next door.
The thread of caring gives each of us the power to change that world.
Together, we can mend broken hearts, dreams, and families.
Together, we are soHza sisters.
By Debbie Lupariello
We started soHza sister more than 7 years ago with the idea of connecting women for good. We were three sisters that had been given a lot in life, and we wanted to give back. We wanted to make a difference. And we wanted to do it together. But how?
We searched idea after idea—never realizing the answer was right in front of us.
It started with a necklace we bought for our mother. It was beautiful—just as beautiful as the story behind it. It had been made by a woman in Ghana. It had been carefully handcrafted, made from love by an empowered woman determined to make things better for her family.
My sister Vicki mentioned that she had received the same kind of bracelet from her friend. When she wore it, she felt the love of her friend as well as a connection to the woman who made it.
Suddenly, we realized our search had ended. We could be the connection. Through these wonderful, wearable pieces of art, we could be agents for women helping women.
And soHza sister was born. A partnership of sisters. Connecting women to causes both locally and globally.
We create partnerships with nonprofits and social commerce around the world that are helping women determined to make a change in their lives. We also partner with local nonprofits for women giving them back a portion of our sales. When you buy a piece of jewelry or t-shirt from soHza sister you help a woman here by helping a woman there.
And when you wear soHza sister or give it as a gift, you become part of the connection. The jewelry makes a statement. And you make a difference.
Learning about these artisans and their stories has enriched our lives in a way we never thought possible. That’s why we love sharing them with you. Again and again, they remind us of the guiding principle of soHza sister:
When a woman in at the center of change anything is possible
