Feel Good Friday - Global Sisters

You've heard that sisterhood is powerful. Heck, you may have even said it! Today Feel Good Friday is taking a quick trip Down Under to learn about the power of Global Sisters.

As stated on their website, "Global Sisters is a unique online platform and e-marketplace which provides a 'start to finish' approach in assisting socioeconomically disadvantaged women in Australia to develop an income stream via micro business or social enterprise."

The goal of the organization is "financial independence for female micro-entrepreneurs." This will be achieved by having an online marketplace where women can sell their creations as well as to providing business advice and micro loans to fund these women.

Those of you in Australia can become Big Sisters and support the women in the program by taking their photos, helping them tell their stories or providing business advice. The rest of us can help out by bookmarking the shopping page, currently under construction, or liking their Facebook page, which has the latest and greatest news. Sisters really are doing it for themselves!
