Mission Santa Maria, Ecuador
We are here to offer unique statement pieces for the bohemian babe all while supporting little hearts in Ecuador. We donate 10% of monthly profits to Mission Santa Maria, located in Olon, Ecuador.
I had the opportunity after graduating college to do mission work at a foster home for children who come from abusive environments. I quickly fell in love with the beautiful and kind hearted children and missionaries, the location, and culture that I was surrounded in. Upon arriving, I was quickly submerged in an environment full of love and true joy. During my time there, I taught English classes and helped care for the children. After a month and a half of serving, I was sad to leave these beautiful people and experiences behind, but promised myself that I would return. Seven years later, my husband and I were able to make the trip back to Ecuador. We were very impressed with all of the work that Mission Santa Maria was doing to truly improve the lives of these children. We strongly believe in this Mission and has been amazing to witness how it has brought hope and change to the people of Olon, Ecuador.
