FORMULA FOR HOPE- Launched for Spring Summer 2015

Helen Kaminski has partnered with Hope for Madagascar; a non-profit organization that assists in the development of self-sustaining communities in the rainforests and rural villages of Madagascar. 

Why Madagascar? The original Helen Kaminski raffia workshop was established in Madagascar in 1985. Our deep rooted connection with the Red Isle continues as the source of the finest raffia in the world where it is grown in the wild, and harvested by hand. Your support: Proceeds from the purchase of our exclusively designed ‘Formula For Hope’ accessories, which will launch for Spring Summer 2015, will help support our long-term commitment to educational and social programs for Malagasy community members. In 2015, Helen Kaminski and Hope for Madagascar are collaborating on the infrastructure upgrade of a rural primary school.

‘Formula For Hope’ accessories can be purchased exclusively from Helen Kaminski brand and ecommerce stores from January 2015 (not all styles available in all stores).
