Dear World of Good Friend --
The new year brings exciting changes at World of Good! To maximize our impact and continue to fulfill our mission on a larger scale, we have decided to make two important changes:
1) We have sold our wholesale division to GreaterGood/Charity USA, an organization that shares our vision and has the team, resources, and experience necessary to grow the valuable partnerships we have built over the years.
2) We have decided to focus exclusively on building WorldofGood.com by eBay, our online marketplace with tens of thousands of socially and environmentally responsible products from around the globe.
Over the last six years, World of Good has built an amazing business and created incredible social impact. Our work has helped more than 25,000 women in 34 countries. We’ve accomplished what we set out to do: empower women artisans and their families in developing communities by connecting them with mainstream retail markets. We have brought more than 2.5 million beautiful and unique Fair Trade products to major retailers like Whole Foods, Hallmark and Disney, among others. GreaterGood will continue to work with all of World of Good’s retail partners and artisan groups, with the support of our team members who have helped build this company from the ground up and have strong relationships with both sets of partners.
We are confident that GreaterGood will make an even greater impact on artisan communities around the globe, due to its larger team, infrastructure and resources. In fact, company founders Tim Kunin and Stacey Edgar have pledged to continue making donations to our sister non-profit – World of Good Development Organization – for its artisan micro-grants that substantially improve the living conditions for artisans and their families in Latin America, Africa and Asia. The World of Good Development Organization works with local partner organizations in each country to execute the projects, reduce implementation costs and ensure local ownership.
World of Good will continue to advance its mission of providing artisans around the globe with access to mainstream markets. We believe the greatest opportunity for scale and impact is through WorldofGood.com, which currently carries tens of thousands of socially and environmentally responsible products from all over the world and provides an unprecedented level of transparency to consumers.
Thank you for your support! We look forward to continuing to work with you to make a world of good together.
World of Good
