A Sikh-American Falls Into the Whirlwind

Read one woman’s journey — Sikh-American activist and filmmaker Valarie Kaur (pictured) — discovers how challenging the status quo exacts a toll.  In it, she works to heal her divided nation.

Magic in Madagascar

Nancy Schuring of New Jersey’s (U.S.A.) Devon Fine Jewelry fell in love with Madagascar while gem hunting.  As a result, she started a scholarship foundation — The Devon Foundation — to help its people.

During the summer of 2008, Nancy Schuring, Debbie Swinney, and Joe Portale traveled to distant Madagascar for an educational and gem-hunting experience. Our guide was Jim Fiebig, a Gemstone and Jewelry Industry expert. We encountered a fascinating country with striking landscapes, incredible gems, and lovely citizens. The gentle Malagasy people are cheerful and optimistic despite their severe poverty. These brave people touched our hearts and inspired a creative and compassionate response.

Take a peek at their Namakoo (means “my friend” in the Malagasy language) collection (pictured above).  All purchases raise funds for the foundation.

There are boundless opportunities to help people in our world, especially in Madagascar.  Learn how here.
