Seeds of Hope Necklace
How would you like to empower families affected by HIV/AIDS? How would you like to accomplish this noble task by purchasing one of the most gorgeous necklaces I’ve ever seen? This necklace is made by a South African woman named Mma Tshabalala. Her story is found here. To buy the necklace, click here. I can almost hear the soft clickety of the beads as they drape around my neck. The hardest part of this Slave-Free Christmas challenge is not buying everything for myself!
Why I Like This:
The Story Company is one of the best ideas I’ve ever seen. Of course, it’s not surprising, since some of my favorite brains at Children’s HopeChest are behind this new company. It makes sense that people within my favorite organization that champions the lives of orphans have developed a company that champions the lives of artists and helps them earn fair wages for their wares. A team of business and fashion people have partnered with artists around the world to get their stories out and give them a platform to sell their amazing products with dignity and hope.
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.
