On a MOVE!
Meet Jess, a young social entrepreneur with a lot of hair on her head. A couple of years ago, she embarked on a mission to share her love for hair with the masses and created an online blog with a name that is a constant reminder that when wet, Hair Gets Kinky!
The best part about HGKWW is that you can always count on a new natural solution to a common hair problem to be posted on the blog. Jess causes follicle jubilation with giveaways and product spotlights that keep you up on the best ways to show your scalp and spirit that you love them with some great products.
As someone who recently started the afro-pilgrimage to a dynomiiiiiite hair-do, I can attest to the helpful info that can be found at HairGetsKinky.com. Give them a visit and let us know if you like it kinky too!
Meet Uchechi, the founder of a clothing company that WFTF can’t help but support and share. Each piece is a gem in its own right, authentically hand-crafted and custom made. From earrings, hand bags, and women’s clothing to bow-ties, hats, and men’s clothes, Menogu Designs has got you covered.
The true beauty of Menogu Designs however, has got to be their successful fusion of modern style with authentic afro-patterns such as Kente and Ankara. It’s hard to forget your heritage and history while wearing a hand-crafted piece made just like your ancestors used to do.
I echo the store’s “about” page when I say that the company has truly “blossomed to a very distinctive collection of items that continue to capture art in a very abstract way.” If you want to embrace style, sankofa, and support Black business, check out Menogu Designs!
Meet Jared and Veneka, newlyweds and founders of a health-food company called Nouri. Their mission, as quoted on their website, is to “bring delicious + naturally healthy bars to the world and in doing so, make a difference in the lives of children. How do we do it? For every bar you buy, we feed a hot meal to a hungry child in school.”
That’s right, for each bar you buy, and they are delicious by the way, Nouri is able to provide a meal for a child in need. This is made possible by partnerships with groups like Stepping Stones International (SSI) in Botswana, to provide meals to 100 orphan school children, with a goal of reaching 1 million children by 2014.
There are currently 3 flavors to choose from and all you have to do is decide which is your favorite. So the next time you need a tasty snack, why not support Black business, feed a child, and eat healthy at the same time?
