Ashleigh Krawll

My name is Ashleigh and I am so glad that you're here! Some of you may know that I am the Founder of Seven Hopes United. I live in San Diego, California with my handsome husband {and Seven Hopes United Co-Founder} Collin. When we aren't working on the site, we love being outdoors, traveling, going out for taco tuesday, and discovering new music. We founded Seven Hopes United almost five years ago after a life-changing trip to Central America. Since then, Seven Hopes United {and I} have grown in ways I never could have imagined, thanks to all of you! Here's a little bit about me: The business aside, my heart beats for the orphan, the poor, the vulnerable, and the oppressed. I want to change the world and be a positive impact on those around me. I love coffee - visiting local coffee shops is one of my favorite things to do - whether it's here in San Diego or when we're traveling. It's my mission to find the coffee shop that makes the best cappuccino or has the most creative lattes! On the blog you'll find some of my favorite recipes {I have a major sweet tooth, so I apologize in advance if you experience dessert overload}, as well as gift ideas, and stories of real people - our artisans, from over 40 countries around the globe. This our space to get personal, so get comfortable! I want to get to know you, I want us to become friends that teach, inspire and grow with one another.
