Our church had its Alternative Christmas Market this Sunday and I had a chance to visit and buy Christmas presents from some wonderful organizations that give back to the people in need all over the world. I have seen all of these products in person so I can vouch for their quality and cool-ness!
This holiday season Purchase with a Purpose! iSanctuary helps to reintegrate women who are victims of human trafficking by “providing self sufficiency options”.
I was so excited when I started to see iSanctuary make its way around the blog world recently. I bought some of their jewelry at our churchs’ Christmas Market last year and I fell in love! Their jewelry is beautiful is made by women who are survivors of human trafficking.
They also sell cute holiday cards and ornaments! I bought the Shooting Star ornament in Peacock for my tree.
“Raven and Lily is a socially responsible brand dedicated to empowering women through design partnerships and sustainable economic opportunities” Read their About Section to find out how their products are made.
This year I bought a set of their notecards. They also have beautiful jewelry, paper products and bags!
By purchasing from Freed by Design you help “support the need for skill training and education for at-risk youth” so that these women do not have to face the possibility of being trafficked.
Many of their pieces are made from recycled bombshells like the dove necklace above. They also have BEAUTIFUL necklaces made with buttterfly wings hand painted with 24K gold.
Vintage Remade designs handbags from up upcycled vintage materials. The proceeds benefit widows and orphans in Malawi Africa.
The have coin purses, clutches and purses made from leather and suede jackets…and even upholstery! How cool is that!
She Dances “provides holistic restoration for young girls who have been trafficked and sexually exploited in Honduras”. Find out more about them here!
If you are a jeans and t-shirt kinda gal or guy you’ll love their collection. I love this Wings T-Shirt!
