Contra Costa Times Profiles SMC Alumnae's Nonprofit Start-Up "Just Hearts"

The Contra Costa Times profiles "Just Hearts," a nonprofit initiative started by Saint Mary's alumnae Megan Colla, '08 and Lindsay Ryberg, '08. The duo formed the initiative with a start up grant from CILSA prior to graduating to market fair trade products from poor artisans in Nicaragua, Thailand and Uganda. The Times interviews the SMC graduates about their efforts to help international artisans, primarily women living in impoverished communities, improve the lives of their families by selling a variety of jewelery and pottery through "Just Hearts" to consumers in the Bay Area.
