Andrea Mihalik is an artist who specializes in tweaking vintage furniture. She has a successful business and is always looking for new and exciting inspiration. Last year she took a trip to Kenya and met the people of the Kiltamany village which is right outside of Nairobi. After admiring their work Andrea knew she had to work with them somehow. Andrea and the women of the village kept in contact via Facebook as she updated them on the progress from the collaboration. The finished product is stunning and the proceeds from one of the chairs that she made she is going to donate to a school to help women receive an advanced education. This is the definition of a win win. The work that this talented village does will be shared with the rest of the world and women who couldn’t receive the education they deserve will move closer to getting it.
Share this because the connection was unlikely but the power of inspiration and good will can bring us all together if we let it.
