I wrote about Helping Hands last month (see the post
) and I mentioned that I would love to stop by the shop that houses non-profit entities for retail venue.
Well, I did just that! I got to visit Pomelo~ =)
Wow, so many creative minds are behind this project. You can read more about it on the Pomelo
but I was quite impressed how these ladies, who are mostly expats, are so dedicated to help the people in Myanmar. All the expats working there are volunteers. They do not get paid a cent! not one Kyats (equivalent to .001 dollar)
All the money goes back to materials and mostly the locals for their housing, medical and other needs.
I 100% recommend this place. Very creative and beautiful things there. The photos were from last week, but I visited again this week and saw some cool new things, such as a cover for a balloon! I also got somethings for my daughter which I hope to use in a photo shoot tomorrow... =) please no rain...
Here are some snippets of the shop~
9 photos total. Don't forget to like my facebook

Oh and here is a photo of a few of the ladies who I accompanied to Pomelo~
