"I don't know how to truly thank you all for everything you are doing for me and the women of my cooperative. I don't know how I will be able to repay you all, how I can thank you, or how I am going to repay you all for the good things you do for them". – Hayat, Morocco

Just last summer this powerful message was sent from the president of a weaving cooperative in Midelt, Morocco to the community of Nest supporters. This message of hope and appreciation was tragically followed this January by the news that one of the members of the cooperative, Rachida, needs our help after a fire destroyed her home, her loom, and the much needed weaving materials.

Fourteen Nest volunteers traveled to Morocco last month to meet Rachida and the effects of the fire were evident in her raw emotion and that of her fellow weavers. The money we raise here will go directly to Rachida who will be able to purchase the items she needs to regain her footing in the cooperative. Any additional funding will be utilized by the Nest non-profit to help other women around the world move from poverty to self-sufficiency.

Nest is a 501c3 non-profit with the EIN: 20-5450672
