So here some organizations that you can get awesome gifts from, and they are not limited to Christmas, you can shop at all these places year round...enjoy!
You all know my love and passion for this organization. We bought these paper hearts last year for multiple people in our family, and they all loved them! We have also bought a ton more from the shop, and we are always satisfied with the products. Here is their mission statement: "The Mercy House exists to provide alternative options for pregnant girls living in the streets of Kenya. The Mercy House will aid them in education, nutrition, housing, prenatal care, Bible study, counseling and job skills for sustainable living." All the money made from the sales in the shop go right back to the ladies at the Mercy House. Click the link and support these beautiful people!
Sevenly is a great company..."Sevenly’s mission is to harness the power of art and community to build sustainable awareness and funding movements that support charities in their efforts to change the world." Each week Sevenly supports a different cause and for $7 you can buy a t-shirt to help that cause. Hello, $7! That's like a value meal at the golden arches, you can totally do that.
You all are in for a treat! The MOB Society just released this little bag today, how awesome! The wonderful ladies over there are working with an organization called Freeset. "Freeset is a fair trade business and ministry that sells bags and t-shirts, made by women freed from human trafficking in Calcutta, India. The women are able to have a job with dignity, making products, instead of being the product. Every woman receives three times the wage they would receive in line (the prostitution line), learns to read and write, receives daycare for their children, and has medical insurance and retirement benefits." The MOB Society is working to sell 250 bags, because once 250 has been reached 4 woman will be rescued from trafficking! Who couldn't use another tote like this?! Order one for you and for your friends!
I hope I have given you all a little bit of encouragement to really give gifts with a purpose this year!
