New products on Zazzle traditionally meant new opportunities to customize a product that has never been customized before (see Rickshaw Messenger Bags) and opportunities for Zazzle Sellers to create a worldwide marketplace of content (instantly). But the power of the Zazzle platform is expanding beyond the customers and Zazzle Sellers universe and starting to empower social good right here in the US of A. Recently launched Liberty Bottles and Rickshaw Bags have extended opportunities to MADE IN THE USA/ecologically friendly partners. Now we’re extending opportunities to the economically disadvantaged with the launch of the socially good American MoJo custom houseware products. Our new line of custom pillows, kitchen towels, dinner napkins, and placemats are hand-stitched by American MoJo’s sustainably employed single moms in the USA and contribute to breaking the cycle of poverty for single moms and their children by providing them with better than minimum wage salaries, career training, and freedom from the daycare costs that keep many single moms from re-entering the work force. The below video does a great job explaining what American MoJo is doing today.
American MoJo was a company before Zazzle and would have continued to be a successful company without this partnership. But, what really gets my juices flowing is that this partnership allows artists around the world to design millions of products on Zazzle and customers to shop and customize something that is beautiful and socially responsible – a powerful thing you can’t find anywhere else on the web. Checkout some of my favorite socially good and high quality new American MoJo pillows below.
