Market Colors is “dedicated to mitigating financial hardships and improving the quality of life of the impoverished in Africa.” If you’ve seen the "about" section of the website, or seen any kind of media associated with Market Colors, you’ve heard this before. I first heard about Market Colors from the CEO, herself. We met at Summit Church in Orlando where we were both interns and about to move in together. When I asked her what was up next as her internship was coming to an end, she revealed the idea of Market Colors. Now, almost two years later, Market Colors has grown from an idea to a full–blown organization doing so much to improve the lives of African craftsmen. This isn’t just because of Lizzie’s vision and hard work (and trust me when I say, she worked hard). It’s also because of all of you - the people that donate, spread the word, purchase products, and recognize the vision of Market Colors as worthwhile.
Because you’re so important, we decided to write a blog all about you, your favorite items and how you wear them. These are just two of the many supporters and fashion-loving patrons that are passionate about Market Colors.
Meet Morgan Beck
Morgan is an 18 year-old student and coach. Her favorite Market Colors product is the Safari Satchel, which she wears “anywhere and everywhere.” Her favorite thing about Market Colors is that when she buys an item, her money is going toward supporting the work of the craftsmen. "I also love that with every Market Colors item I buy, I receive an information card about the craftsmen that made my product."
Meet Megan Radamaker
Megan attends Wayne State University in Michigan. and she's passionate about improving the future nutritional health and well-being of her community. She loves wearing her Market Colors scarf and proudly showing her support for the opportunity the organization is giving to impoverished African craftsman.
