The first time I saw this symbol I connected to it instantly. For me it sums up motherhood so accurately - our children will forever be intertwined into our being & soul. We will always be their protector. Their safe space
As a mother myself, I know how strong the primal urge is to do whatever we need to provide the best life for our children. On the flip side, I also know what it feels like to have no financial income, to struggle finding employment, and to worry about the future.
This is a major reason why I am so passionate about supporting mothers. Every human should be paid fairly for their work and have access to safe, flexible employment; but mothers need this especially as they may not have family close by to help look after their children while they work, may not be able to afford child care, or may be a single parent who carries the full weight of raising a family on their own.
Each pair of shoes provides a fair income for the incredible makers, plus provides work that they can complete from home so they can care for their children at the same time.
