Fashion & Compassion

I first heard about Fashion & Compassion through my co-worker, Ande Truman. She will be traveling with the group to Uganda in October, and I decided to check out their website. They work with women in America, South America and Africa who are trying to overcome their circumstances and work towards a brighter future.

Here’s a video that explains a little bit more about what the organization.
