Feel Good Friday

There is something Faso’nating about being in a completely new environment.

You are given a blank slate…

to build on…

and the ability to create connections.

As a Peace Corps volunteer at a school in Burkina Faso, Victor built the strongest level of connection with a new community…inheriting a local family, life-long friends and a feeling of home 5,637 miles away from his hometown of St. Louis, Missouri.  So he wanted to extend those connections to you too.

Victor created a line of Burkina Faso totes…

A Rwanda'ring Hero
