Read more about the collaboration between us and The Mighty River Project below:
I first was introduced to The Mighty River Project (TMRP) and Erin during our first ever Four Black Paws Rescue Box in Spring 2015. I fell in love with her mission and we talked a few times about collaborating with some material she had from Uganda. Fast forward one year later and we now have a special line of collars made out of the material AND 20% of proceeds from each collar will go back to TMRP.
A bit about TMRP:
The Mighty River Project partners with nine different Ugandan artisans, all mamas, who are using the income they get from their crafts to support their families. In addition to being paid a fair wage, they also receive medical care for their entire families, school sponsorship for their children, water filtration devices if necessary, emergency assistance when needed, and mentoring.
Rita is our seamstress. She is a single mother to eight daughters, whose husband abandoned the family about a year ago. Rita is a fantastic mom, and work SO hard to provide for her girls. When we were last in Uganda, she took us to her favorite fabric shop right around the corner from the town's open-air market and hand selected this fabric with collaborations and product development in mind.
All Four Black Paws collars, accessories and leads are handmade especially for you in Benton Harbor, MI. I take a lot of pride in my work and strive to make stunning and unique items for your fur baby.
