Chrissie Sherwood set up Injabulo.com, which sells beautiful handmade buttons made by a women’s co-operative in South Africa, because she was so inspired to create a way by which we can all benefit from their creativity and in so doing they can create better lives for themselves.  It’s not just that her business is a great example of creative living; she’s creative too, not least in how she works from home.  Chrissie is doing much more than saving the world one button at a time, she’s giving back and receiving infinitely as a result.
