The 2019 HALF BACK TO HER Grant Recipient is Leonetti Confetti!
Leonetti Confetti celebrates women in recovery by hiring them to make confetti! The mission for our business is simple: to spread kindness & economic opportunity around like confetti. Each piece of our colorful confetti is as unique as the women who make it by hand in Minneapolis, MN, and we love creating cute confetti concoctions for all of life's celebrations!
Our confetti with a cause can be made to order in a wide range of custom colors perfect for events, weddings, and photo shoots, and we craft every order using only 100% recycled tissue paper. Whenever you buy a Leonetti Confetti creation you're helping us make the world a brighter place for people in recovery, which we think is a good reason to celebrate!
We’ve recently launched confetti print canvas bags hand painted by women in recovery as part of a collaboration with local artist Laura Bergren (True Ethic) + Freeset, an organization empowering women out of human trafficking by providing jobs in textiles -- a dual give back that just means so much more. Spread opportunity, spread joy!
