Every Day is “World Humanitarian Day” with VEENA

For World Humanitarian Day this August, celebrate girls around the globe with eco-brand VEENA. More than just a fashion statement, VEENA is a social entrerprise with quality clothing and lifestyle accessories that serve as a vehicle for global change.  

VEENA is a chic, sustainable clothing and lifestyle brand created by young entrepreneur and fashion designer Jena Murray.   Murray’s mission is to teach girls to love and value themselves - all while being fashionable.  Each design created is named after a child who touched Murray’s life through the VEENA WARRIORS program, where she works one-on-one with underprivileged girls. Through VEENA WARRIORS, girls learn to express themselves by creating jewelry, crafts, drawings and paintings which help them grow emotionally, mentally, and spiritually. 

Murray is inspired by the girls’ spirit and resilience, and incorporates bright colors and eye-catching patterns into her brand’s designs that are just as unique as the girls who wear them. As a result, all of VEENA’s outfits and accessories incorporate energetic, positive, and subconscious design that builds the confidence of girls and changes the way they perceive themselves.  Check out their current pieces here.

VEENA WARRIORS works with girls in the U.S., Canada, and India, and Murray hopes to connect with more girls in several countries around the world.  Murray and her team at VEENA "envision a world in which every girl realizes her self-worth and activates her limitless potential by freely and courageously loving

My Thoughts

I love finding unique clothing for my daughter. VEENA has styles with a touch of magic that really appeal to me on a deeper level. Most of their clothing has the Eye of VEENA. For me, this is like the ancient evil eye symbol, which wards away negative energy and protects you from harm. I actually have a lot of jewelry with his symbol, and a few shirts for myself. This is the first time I've been able to find anything like this for my daughter. To the average person, it's just a pretty design, but for this New Age Mama, it's a way to give my child a little added protection when I'm not around. 

The second shirt we received has an  beautiful horse design. It's very artistic and creative, and so much more original than the typical character shirts my daughter usually selects. Both of these shirts are absolutely adorable, and perfect for the fall season. They are a nice weight, well made, and will definitely make my daughter stand out in the crowd.  They are also very comfortable, with no itchy tags or loose threads. This is fashion with a message, and a deeper meaning than simply a pretty graphic. Both have a definite Boho twist that I just love, and they help bring out the warrior in every woman--even a little one. Of course, there are only a few examples of the fantastic fashions you can find at VEENA. Here are a few more styles I love:
