Joanne is a social activist, crafter and entrepreneur. She was only 7 when she learned to knit, crochet, and sew. There is something soothing in the hum of a sewing machine, and she often finds herself reminiscing about her mother, grandmother and great grandmother who were instrumental in developing her passion for creating.
For more than 30 years she has passionately advocated for social justice. She has worked on international missions in Belize and Jamaica. In Canada, Joanne has worked in Salvation Army and St Vincent de Paul shelters and other areas of social service.
She combined her passion for crafting and giving back to found The Giving Gift Company.
The Giving Gift Company is an online gift shop that sells fun, handmade reversible bucket hats. Each one is unique, and one of a kind. Most importantly, a portion of each sale is donated to one of 7 of her favorite charitable organizations that have positively impacted her life.
Because giving is ALWAYS in fashion!
