ANNUAL Campaign LetterFrom rubia's executive director

As 2016 draws to a close, it’s time to reflect on the past (unusual) year, remind ourselves of what matters most and give thanks for those who make our work worthwhile. Your support is vital to our efforts. From loyal supporters like you to extraordinary women like Fatoumata Kanakomo (pictured below) of Tanti Bogolan Women’s Association in Mali, our team at Rubia could not be more thankful.

Thanks to our new wholesale partner, Serengetee (http://www.serengetee.com), Tanti Bogolan’s cooperative is expanding production of traditional mud cloth and earning more money for their families. By purchasing fabric from over 25 countries, Serengetee shares our commitment to reduce poverty through supporting artisans around the world while preserving ancient textile heritage. Get your artistic juice flowing by designing your own custom-made shirt with a pocket of this rare mud cloth, Dogo. It comes in ten styles including this cool Serenge-t-shirt (http://www.serengetee.com/pockets/dogo-pocket).

2017 will bring some new and exciting initiatives as Rubia invests more resources in adult and child literacy in Mali. Please deepen your commitment to help more artisans to empower themselves by giving a gift to Rubia today. Tomorrow is the last day of the year to make tax-deductible contributions. With appreciation and faith in humanity, Catherine Rielly Executive Director
