Jamie’s Charities: One Mango Tree

One of the best ways to feel good about all this crazy commercialism in today’s holiday season is to purchase fair trade goods. And the beautiful purses, jewelry bags, clothing and accessories of One Mango Tree make it very easy to be selfish and also do good in the world!

Check out their amazing collection here: http://www.onemangotree.com/

All goods are made by women in Northern Uganda who work to support their family. The very motivated DC-Ohio girl Halle Butvin had a dream five years ago to start OMT with local seamstress Auma Lucy. Suddenly, they had more women apply for work than they knew what to do with and more orders than they ever expected. Read their story and you’ll know why OMT gets my business every year!
