Letter From The Editor

You may have noticed that it's been a while between emails. We are excited to say that we have been happily distracted as we spend some time working on our very first book! More details on this exciting project to come. In the meantime, we've been continuing our Make Nice Mission with H.E.A.R.T. - the non-profit group that brings age-appropriate humane education programs to public schools and other non-profit agencies at no cost. This month we're excited to share with you our Human Rights Edition!

Inspired by H.E.A.R.T.'s Human Rights program, we've collaborated with The Little Market to show a real-life example of an ethical business that works to promote social justice and human rights. We highlight the importance of getting to know our peers before judging them, understanding the phrase "fair trade," and knowing where our products come from. We take a look at some incredible artisans in action and get inspired to make some artisanal jewelry of our own.

We all want to do right by others and would prefer to buy a product that is kind and supportive to all humans and animals. Sadly there isn't always enough time to figure out whether a product was borne of inspiration and not exploitation. Companies have figured out that consumers are hungry for certain products and know of tricks to make us think we're buying conscientiously made products, when in fact we are not. In this issue of Make Nice, we aim to give you simple signs to look for when shopping and show you some great purchases that will ensure that you are making nice for yourself and others.

The crafts and activities in this edition were designed to donate to the teachers at H.E.A.R.T. for use in their classrooms. We've made them available here for you and your kids to use in your own home. It's never too early to teach our children the importance of human rights and we hope that you and your family enjoy some simple tips on how to live ethically sustainable lives.

P.S. You will notice that Moomah the Magazine has a sponsor for this issue! Our goal is to raise awareness and funding for incredible non-profits. If we love your company and products and you're willing to help us spread the word about the non-profit we're working with, we're happy to share the page with you! This month we thank The Little Market for their contribution and support for H.E.A.R.T.!

Warmly,
Tracey Stewart
