Why, A Cause?

On a Saturday night in October, a group of us from A Pot of Tea Under a Tree and Hope Foundation went to the screening of Nefarious: Merchant of Souls documentary
It reminded me again of why! 
Why in this moment, A Pot of Tea Under a Tree exists.  
I started A Pot of Tea Under a Tree because ever since I was a little girl I wanted to be a fashion designer and I wanted to change the world. 
A contradiction right? Not now! 
I'm so honoured to be able to provide beautiful sustainable clothing that is morally and environmentally sound BUT! 
This endeavour is created out of a passion for a cause. 
A cause, that is taking steps to strengthen women in their environment throughout the world. 
Miraculously two woman have came across my path and have touched my heart. 
Browen Healy, who is the creator of Hope Foundation, here in Brisbane, Australia and Somaly Mam, the creator of Somaly Mam Foundation, from Cambodia. 
Both woman are rescuing girls from sexual slavery and death.
This is why A Pot of Tea Under a Tree will continue doing what we are doing:
