“Peace begins with a smile”. Purple Buddha Project, an international “Creativity for Change” group has been channeling all of their artistic creativity in jewelry conception to help give back to the nation of Cambodia, one of the most heavily-bombed countries in the world. In spreading awareness of countries in turmoil, these artisans have created a mass movement and have begun a world-wide rally to help those in need. How amazing is it to see that a group of talented individuals find joy in putting smiles to the faces of those who we least expect to wear them? Affordable and unique hand-made jewelry can be found at their site, accompanied by motivational aesthetic.
What makes PBP such a unique group is that they emphasize the inputs in business just as much as the outputs. They give back just as much as they receive. From giving disadvantaged artisans employment to inspecting and removing bomb litter to even creating jewelry out of it, Purple Buddha Project’s innovation only continues to grow from here on out.
Although Project Cambodia is a very ambitious feat, they don’t plan on stopping there. PBP are always excited to receive opportunities to help all countries in need of assistance. All it takes is somebody to reach out. So go ahead, give and create smiles just as we were designed to do.
