ethnicwomanGlobal Girlfriend specializes in fairly-traded apparel and accessories hand-made by women and communities in need. All the clothes are women-made, eco-friendly, and fair trade. Globalgirlfriend.com offers everything from apparel to handbags, accessories, bath and body products, jewelry, and “gifts that give more.” What are gifts that give more? A percentage is given to a cause, such as for malnourished children, feeding orphans, to heat a classroom in Afghanistan, and more.

girlfriendGlobal Girlfriend was created by Stacey Edgar in 2003 to help women worldwide gain economic security while providing unique products and a simple way to help women in need. Global Girlfriend believes passionately that economic opportunity for women holds the promise for real change in the world; because when women have an income, they reinvest in themselves and in their children’s health, education and nutrition, building stronger families and communities over time.
