While we believe the most effective way to combat poverty is by creating dignified, sustainable jobs, we also provide supplemental financial donations to meet the extra needs of Artisan families and their communities. Noonday’s annual Impact Giveback Campaigns, part of the Flourishing World Initiative, raise funds for a specific country, partner, or cause through incentives designed to raise awareness about our collective impact.
Each June, Noonday’s Ambassadors, Hostesses, and customers come together to raise awareness about our collective impact and provide additional funds for the selected Impact Giveback cause. The cause of each annual Impact Giveback Campaign is selected in accordance with our Artisan Partners, who are local to their communities and have the greatest understanding of its needs.
10% of all sales from qualifying Gather for Global Good Trunk Shows in June were designated to increase emergency funding for Artisan Businesses facing the global pandemic. The donations listed below were sourced from the sales at Gather for Global Good Trunk Shows and additional donations from Noonday Collection.

Noonday is committed to helping as many Artisans as possible. To do so, Artisan Partners have been asked to respond to a survey inquiring about their community’s needs and when assistance is needed. The funds raised will be used to provide additional support throughout 2020.
