From the Beginning
WorldFinds was conceptualized in the middle of a 14-month backpack trip around the world, way back in 1999. Founder Kelly Weinberger and her husband David Burns had taken a sabbatical and traveled throughout various parts of Africa, Europe, the Middle East, and finally Asia, where they spent time in India and Nepal and Kelly first learned about fair trade – and had her lightbulb moment. She dreamed of creating a business that existed to do good, that was based on partnership, collaboration, great design, kindness and respect for humans and the environment. A business that would address the root cause of poverty – a lack of work.
The combination of dreaming, doing and persistence has resulted in who we are today, and all that you see here!
