Pearls with Purpose publishes The Purple Dress children’s book

This Incredible book tells the true story of how one American child’s choice impacts a child on the other side of the world.
 

Pearls with Purpose, a non-profit organization dedicated to sustainable self-reliance for disadvantaged individuals in developing countries, has published an all-new children’s book titled, The Purple Dress. Pearls with Purpose founder Wendy Bird authored The Purple Dress, which tells the incredible, true story of how an eight-year-old American girl’s choice has a lasting impact on a 12-year-old girl in a remote jungle in the Philippines.

Bird hopes the book will instill the values of giving and service to readers as one simple donation can change the life of someone on the other side of the world. The Purple Dress will explain to children how giving and contributing can impact the lives of others in a positive and powerful way.

Pearls with Purpose was founded in 2002 by Bird as a non-profit organization providing micro-enterprise training along with humanitarian assistance to women around the world. The company sells hand crafted jewelry made by artisans in developing countries.

Bird has inspired and motivated people all over the world by sharing her passion and experience with social entrepreneurship. The Pearls with Purpose founder is a certified gemologist (GIA) and graduate of the Goldman Sachs 10KSB MBA program. Her goal is to lead women toward long-term self-reliance by teaching them jewelry-making and business ownership with micro-enterprise skills.

The first 100 hard-cover orders of The Purple Dress will come with a unique code at checkout. The code is worth 50% off any piece of artisan jewelry on the Pearls with Purpose website.

Bird began work in the Philippines before expanding Pearls with Purpose as a worldwide outreach program. Since its founding in 2002, Pearls with Purpose has assisted hundreds of women allowing them to create self-sustainability for themselves and their families. In addition, 400 students have received educational scholarships and more than 22 of the Philippines’ 81 provinces have received container shipments of books, educational supplies and hygiene kits, as well as other needed items.

The Purple Dress children’s book is available from Pearls with Purpose’s official website, Amazon and as an eBook. To learn more about the Purple Dress, please watch the non-profit’s insightful video on YouTube.
