Kindred Goods is a marketplace for unique, handmade gifts that are ethically sourced from around the world.
What is ethically sourced? It means that we work with organizations and artists around the world to determine a fair cost for each item – helping to create sustainable living and alleviate world poverty.
Organizations are working day and night to sustain their projects – and continue to do what they do best. The people who rely on these organizations are often talented, skilled and ambitious – but are without means to export and sell their goods. And that’s where we come in.
Every purchase you make with Kindred Goods creates opportunity for world-wide organizations, artists and their families. We also encourage the use of recycled materials and eco-friendly practices – so you can count on your purchase helping the planet, too.
So how did we get started?
In 2007 we volunteered in Kenya for the very first time. Shortly after we returned home, we decided we wanted to do more…so we did. We got together with some other friends we had met in Kenya and started our organization, Friends Vision. Our goal was simple : give children who had been abandoned an education and an opportunity for a fulfilled life. So we did.
Years later, Kindred Goods was born. After meeting so many inspiring organizations and people, again we knew we could do more to help. So we did.
