First Kiva donation

With each order we receive for a mat we will be taking a portion of the sale price and contributing to someone via   It is also important for you to know that Kiva gives 100% of what they receive from us to the person in need.  (please read our prior post "Giving Back" to get more information on what we are doing).

Here is our first donation to a beautiful woman in Nigeria who could use our help.

It was not easy to choose someone in need of financial help.  But I took one look at Fumilayo's beautiful smile and sparkling eyes and knew I wanted to help her.

We will continue to donate and when the loans are paid back we will just turn around and lend to another person.

Thank you so much for purchasing from our company and in turn thank you for donating to this beautiful woman and wonderul organization.
