The 21 ladies (from around the globe) that collectively share their thoughts and ideas through Vision & Verb wanted to give something to the wider world in which they live.

An idea was born and embraced (by the 21 ladies) to use their artwork to create gift cards which would enable disadvantaged people around the world to help themselves:

The profit from every card sold (approximately 50%) will be given back to the larger world in allotments of 50$ loans to men and women seeking to start their own businesses. The conduit for these loans is Kiva, a non-profit organisation that enables us to lend to the “working poor” around the world.

The shop is now open for viewing :-)

    You say empowering “people” then then shift to twenty-one “ladies”. Interesting.

    I am most intrigued by V and V, women together create a powerful, creative not to be mucked about with entity. Go girls!
