Rising Iinternational and Carmen Kitchens and Baths 5th Annual Global Marketplace Holiday Sale

Designing a Kinder World This Holiday Season


Carmel, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/19/2014 -- On Friday Nov. 28th Carmel Kitchens and Baths will once again transform its kitchen showroom into a stunning global marketplace just in time for holiday gift giving. Holiday shoppers will find unique and meaningful gifts handmade by women living in countries considered to be the hardest for a woman to survive. Countries such as the D.R. Congo where violence against women is used as a war tactic, and Afghanistan where learning to read or write could cost a woman her life.

Every handmade treasure purchased on November 28th will play a role in creating a kinder and safer world for us all. United Nations research shows that when women in developing countries can earn money and educate their children, it triggers an incredible sequence of results. Domestic violence decreases. Family planning increases. Birth rates drop. Infant and maternal mortality are reduced. Nutrition, health, and life expectancy are enhanced. Housing and sanitation improve. More children are in school, including girls, and there is faster economic growth. In other words, the overall health and wellbeing of a society is greatly improved.

Socially conscious shoppers will find a vast array of handmade holiday gifts including: baskets, scarves, table runners, aprons, necklaces, dog collars and leashes; Everything including the kitchen sink! …because all of these global goods will be displayed in Carmel Kitchens and Baths’ sensational showroom! Their designer sinks, faucets and cabinets will provide a visually stunning shopping atmosphere.

All these handmade products are made possible by Rising International’s women’s economic development programs. Rising International is a non-profit that searches the globe for the world’s most forgotten women, and empowers them to change their destinies through micro-enterprise.
