Another Reason Why We Should Support SMEs: They Give Back Just As Much

These burgeoning local brands are paying it forward



It's been more than a year since the pandemic hit, and its long-enduring effects continue to permeate through life as we all know it. Many small and medium enterprises have been heavily affected, with a number closing down completely, but this isn't stopping others from paying it forward. Amid a pandemic, we need all the help that we can get. And with technology and digital means, giving back is made even easier.

With the mission of lifting local artisans out of poverty, the brainchild of Reese Fernandez-Ruiz has doubled its efforts to give back in the midst of a pandemic. The flourishing eco-ethical fashion brand is rising up to affect change by providing meals and PPEs, and generating livelihood for their community through the creation of reusable face masks sewn by Rags2Riches artisans.
