Beza Threads Scarves
When I visited Ethiopia, everywhere I looked, I saw beautiful scarves. Women covered their heads with them, merchants sold them on the street. They are handwoven and delicate and quintessentially Ethiopian. Beza Threads sell gorgeous scarves in an array of colors, handmade in Addis Ababa.
Why I Like This:
WinSouls is an Ethiopian non-profit that rescues child slaves from the streets of Addis Ababa and provides them with a one-year program of education, counseling, and love. Beza Threads buys the scarves made by these children at a fair wage and sells them, returning the revenue from the scarves back to the children and the WinSouls program.
Slave-Free Christmas Challenge:
This Christmas, I’ve challenged myself to shop my entire Christmas list from organizations that are helping people, not hurting people. Today, 27 million men, women, and children live as someone else’s property. Slaves are making the items that I’m buying to celebrate the birth of my Lord and Savior. Somehow I don’t think He’s blessed by the blood on His birthday presents. For more information on my Slave-Free Christmas project, click here.
