Humanitarian Online Marketplace to Create Income Streams for War Widows in the Middle-East: Wyndstorm Corporation Hired to Develop Project

Share Article

Impoverished women in non-western nations are beginning to receive a helping hand from individuals, companies and humanitarian groups in the U.S. and abroad. One such example is Tampa, Florida-based entrepreneur, Jodie Sweezey, a Marine Captain reservist whose company One Starry Nite... LLC contracted social media technology and online marketing company Wyndstorm Corporation (OTCBB:PKCM) to develop OneStarryNite.com, a humanitarian e-commerce effort to create income streams for women in the Middle East, Asia and South America.

For example, in Iraq once someone is a widowed, they are completely reliant upon a male family member of their family or their former husband's family to provide for them. In some areas, such as Al Anbar (a province east of Bagdad), 50 to 60 percent of the women are illiterate and don't have a skill necessary to earn a living.

    "The spark for this idea came to me during my two tours in Iraq. There, I saw the need to take action to help women," said Sweezey, founder of One Starry Nite... LLC.

According to Sweezey, humanitarian groups are working internationally to train women and prepare them with micro-business management skills. In cooperation with these local efforts, OneStarryNite.com will purchase handcrafts directly from the women and/or women's coops and become a non-exclusive online sales channel. The e-commerce Website will sell a myriad of things, including handmade purses, jewelry, clothing, baskets, and holiday items.
