"We all have different gifts, so we all have different ways of saying to the world who we are." ~Mister Rogers
Mister Rogers is one of our favorite people, especially because of his heartfelt and intentional message to the world about the significant importance and unique value of every single person on the planet. The loving kindness and compassionate empathy he endlessly shared with his television friends, with the viewers and families watching his TV show at home, and with each person who came into his presence are still so very much needed now.
If Mister Rogers were still alive today, we believe that he would continue to radically and unconditionally love the world and its inhabitants. So we're challenging you to care for others as Mister Rogers did.
By purchasing this handmade, all-natural ornament, you are supporting the marginalized Central Asian women artisans behind the products. These talented felters use 100% locally sourced wool to create the felt for this ornament and for our entire Silk Road Bazaar collection. Through your purchase, you are also providing the farmers, craftspeople, and communities with a market space for their traditional practices, computer training, design development, and managerial skills, as well as personal relationships with the people of Silk Road Bazaar.
Gift an ornament to someone who loves like Mister Rogers or who needs to know that compassion, tuck one on your tree to share with little ones or hang one on a rearview mirror. Spreading kindness is never out of style. This really is a purpose-full purchase that changes the world in a way to make a world Mister Rogers would love to live in.
"There's a part of all of us that longs to know that even what's weakest about us is still redeemable and can ultimately count for something good." ~Mister Rogers
