Sunday Spotlight: Della

Well I crossed another thing off my summer bucket list yesterday as I went hiking with some pretty cool ladies.  It was a pretty easy hike but a hike none the less and the beautifully warm weather allowed me to sweat a bit and feel like I got in a workout.

Anyway, what I really want to talk about today is a really cool company that’s doing some pretty cool things.  In fact, I’m hoping to make this a fairly regular (read: not weekly) thing on this here blog of mine and it’s called Sunday Spotlight.  The idea behind this is that I want to take some time to spotlight some awesome people or companies doing great things.

So who sparked this idea?  The company is called Della and they are a fashion company that also creates laptop and iPad cases.  But they go further than that.  The company was created by a woman named Tina Tangalakis who decided to start this company after a trip to Ghana that absolutely changed her life.

According to their website, “every dollar earned at Della goes toward providing employment, education and financial stability for poverty-stricken women in Ghana. Our women receive a steady, fair income and are empowered through education via micro-financing, savings and entrepreneurship classes.”  These beautiful cases, jewelry and bags and made in Ghana.

What I love most about this company, is not just that they’re giving jobs and stability to these women, but rather they’re taking it a step further.  They provide healthcare, social security benefits and weekly money management and literacy classes.  How cool is that?  It definitely takes this quote to a whole new level:

I was so excited when I heard about this company and as soon as I can decide which case I want to buy, I’m going to do it! (There are just so many beautiful options).

 Any amazing people or companies I should know about?

Send me an email to kt.talkless.saymore (at) gmail.com and they may be part of a future Sunday Spotlight!

    • They have a few on their website and they’re starting to sell in Apple retail stores (exclusively) but only in select markets.
