MacFly is a social enterprise intent on changing communities.

Our focus is on affecting communities - both local and abroad.  We address three specific issues.  First is economic empowerment.  In 2013, a Harvard University/UC Berkeley ranked Charlotte 50th out of 50 in economic mobility among the largest U.S. cities.  Second, is the issue of diversity in the creative professions.  Minorities are less likely than their peers to choose a creative major and those that do often never enter the profession.  The lack exposure to these career paths is one of the main reasons.

Last, but not least, we seek to be global citizens.  Our current project, Made In Goma, connects makers of artisan products in Goma, DR Congo to our marketplace.  Handmade products direct from many parts of Africa our sold in our store with the proceeds routed directly to the producers at US Market Rates.  In addition to the global trade network, we travel to Goma yearly where we teach screen printing.  Our goal each year is establish sustainable business models by leaving behind the know-how and the equipment needed to continue printing.
