Dream On!

By Andrea Novella


Recently, I joined the Good.Is Community in search of connecting with others who are passionate about making a difference.

Good.Is is like as social networking site for do gooders. People from all industries unite here under the common purpose of living well and doing good. If you are interested in philanthropy and doing Good, I highly recommend you join.

I cannot thank the Good.Is community enough for providing such a beautiful opportunity to connect with such wonderful people. It is helping us to move forward with our vision of helping change the world, one woman at a time. It has renewed our passion for making a positive change, and encouraged us to push forward despite the challenges.

They have been a beacon of hope when those inevitable moments of self-doubt creep in. When we have felt discouraged and wondered if it is even possible for us to make a positive impact in this world, they have been there to remind us that YES, WE CAN. They have nurtured the dreamer in us that believes that if we work together, we can be a force of good.


My first venture into posting something “To-Do” on Good was for Fashion Revolution Day.

It was amazing to get such positive feedback and support from people all over the world, pledging to promote awareness about the impact of Fashion by wearing their clothes inside out on April 24th.  (Speaking of which… We are only two days away from the first ever Fashion Revolution Day!  This Global movement is set to turn the Fashion Industry Inside Out.)


Inspired by the enthusiasm shown by the Good.Is community, I decided to share a sneak peak in the upcoming IndieGoGo campaign for Gemma Jade. We asked people to REPRESENT Gemma Jade by helping us to spread the word about our crowd funding project once it goes live. This group received a FREE Guatemalan Friendship Bracelet (which will be going for $10 once the campaign is live) to wear as a symbol of their support (and our appreciation!)





I would like to thank two very special people who have been like angels sent from above to help us.



Jennifer  signed up to REPRESENT on Good.Is and took it one step further. She asked if there was any way she could get involved and help.

Thanks to her, our campaign not only has a beautiful message, but a beautiful aesthetic as well. A talented graphic designer, and visual problem solver, Jennifer has put her skills to “Do Good” and has helped us transform our IndieGoGo Campaign, working tirelessly to tell our story visually. Not only is she an incredible designer, she is an incredible person who is a joy to work with. For those of you looking for graphic design, we cannot recommend her enough. Be sure to visit
her webpage www.jenniferchoi.info


Alessandra has been a true inspiration and role model. Her enthusiasm for making a difference is evident in her unconditional support for so many great causes, including our own. She was such a huge help in helping us get the word out there about Gemma Jade.  It is amazing to see someone with such passion for making this world a better place. Follow her on twitter @hellorizzotti and check out her webpage HERE. 


We all have dreams that we are fighting for, and challenges that we must overcome in order to make them come true. Sometimes a kind word or helping hand is exactly what you need. I feel very thankful to have the support and encouragement of some pretty awesome people.

To all of those who are reading this, THAT INCLUDES YOU!


Stay tuned because in a few short days, we will be turning dreams into reality.





Meet Your Maker: The Latest Fashion Movement

Gemma Jade is a proud supporter FASHION REVOLUTION DAY. Join us in a movement that is redefining the spirit of Fashion and putting socially responsible manufacturing in the forefront of our decisions as consumers.




On 24th April each year, Fashion Revolution Day will bring everyone in the fashion value chain together and help to raise awareness of the true cost of fashion, show the world that change is possible, and celebrate all those involved in creating a more sustainable future.

As a global movement uniting around an annual campaign,  we believe we will build considerable momentum and achieve incredible impact together. We hope that Fashion Revolution will bring together organisations and people that, outside of Fashion Revolution Day, are not always connected.

8_FRD_actions_-01BE CURIOUS

The first Fashion Revolution Day is based around the theme ‘Who Made Your Clothes?’

We have lost the connection with the clothes that we wear, so we thought it was important to make this first day about transparency and reconnecting the relationships in the fashion value chain. What is the connection to someone else through your clothes? The farmers do not know where their cotton goes; the producers no longer make entire garments, they are just line workers; and the end consumer rarely knows where their clothes were made.

We need to become more curious about how our clothes are made and who made them.

8_FRD_actions_-02FIND OUT

Look at the labels on your clothes and see if you can find out who made your clothes. Get in contact with brands and ask them ‘Who Made Your Clothes‘.

  • Tweet the brand a picture of your garment and ask Who Made Your Clothes?
  • Contact the brand on Facebook and ask Who Made Your Clothes?
  • On Fashion Revolution Day 24 April, please Tweet: Today I’m wearing my (shirt/dress/T-shirt etc.) #insideout because I want to ask @ (brand/retailer) Who Made Your Clothes?
  • Make a video or send an email to the brand and ask them Who Made Your Clothes?

8_FRD_actions_-03DO SOMETHING

Together we can use the power of fashion to catalyse change and reconnect the broken links in the supply chain.

  • Wear your clothes inside-out to help start the beginning of an industry-wide transformation towards a more sustainable future. Ask ‘Who Made Your Clothes?
  • Show us your inside out clothes on Instagram by tagging it @Fash_Rev and #InsideOut
