Two female entrepreneurs–Susan Tynan of Georgetown’s Framebridge and Jane Mosbacher Morris of Kentucky-based To The Market–are joining forces in honor of International Women’s Day. A socially-inspired business that works to economically empower women who are survivors of abuse, disease, or conflict, To The Market partners with women around the globe to help sell and distribute their artisan goods.

To the Market sells everything from colorful skirts to throw pillows to stationary, but for their partnership with local custom frame shop, Framebridge, the women artisans behind To The Market have crafted custom frame back designs. Between March 8 and 11, Framebridge will be using those designs on their framed Instagram Minis (5×5-inch Instagram prints that are matted and framed for $39). For each Instagram Mini sold between now and March 11, Framebridge will donate $5 to support To the Market’s mission of empowering women–with each sale providing the funds for a woman in the developing world to receive one hour of business training.

This promotion is just the beginning of the partnership between Framebridge and To The Market, who plan to roll out more collaborations for Women’s History Month. A Framebridge Instagram Mini may be ordered onlinecustomers can simply upload their photo, select a frame and mat style, then add it to their cart.
