An Angel is one who champions, volunteers and supports a social enterprise through the purchase of their responsibly made goods individually or as an organisation!
Delightful day with LinkedIn Singapore! We got the chance (thanks to our Angel host Yee Yeung who rallied us!) to share how Angels of Impact supports women-led social enterprises. We are incredibly humbled to find so many Angels pre-ordered chocolates from our Angel Social Enterprise, Kakoa. Some of Kakoa's absolutely delicious chocolates include Cashew Coconut Nibs, Dark Chocolate and their best-seller Cashew chocolate bar. These passionate individuals were so happy to be able to buy responsibly-made chocolates for themselves and even as corporate gifts - part of the wonderful #linkedinforgood campaign! We believe they are all Angels. Anyone who supports responsibly-produced goods and helps spread the word about our amazing Social Enterprises are Angels to us.
Sharing Kakoa's products with LinkedIn is part of our mission to bring responsibly-made products to a wider audience. We know that people don't want to harm others when they buy things, but it's so difficult to know how the things we buy affect the people who make them. That's why we're so excited about companies that put responsible production at the heart of what they do. When you buy a responsibly-made product, like chocolates from Kakoa, or clothing and gifts from Torajamelo, another of our Angel social enterprises, their supply chains are transparent and you know the the people who make them are well-treated. You can be confident that by buying their products, you're making people's lives better, not worse.
What do we mean by a transparent supply chain where people are well treated? Watch the video: it shows the difference that Torajamelo is making to the lives of women weavers in Indonesia. We are passionate about bringing products made by companies like Kakoa and Torajamelo to as many people as we can - because everyone wants to have a positive impact on the world, and buying responsibly-produced products helps us to do that!
Our very lovely host Yee Yeung from LinkedIn, and Shria, truly an Angels indeed! Along with our amazing volunteer teamates Airashi and Legha!
