Hey guys! This post is a little different then my usual sewing posts. Today I want to share a company with you that I’v been working with the last few months, and you might have noticed some of their product in my photos.
Purpose Jewelry is a non-profit handcrafted jewelry company, but not just any jewelry company. Also known as International Sanctuary, Purpose Jewelry sells beautiful bracelets, rings, necklaces and earrings handmade by women who have been rescued from human trafficking and are given professional opportunities, job training, education and medical care through this non profit group. 100% of the proceeds support these women in form of employment, paychecks and job training.
“International Sanctuary empowers survivors with true freedom”. They have a few sanctuaries all over the world: Mumbai, India and Orange County, CA (my hometown).
Every piece of jewelry is handmade by survivors, and tagged with the individual’s handwritten name that made each piece.
It’s so special to wear this jewelry and know not only the name of the woman or girl who made it, but that I’m helping her, among others in a small way. And you guys, this jewelry is gorgeous!
By purchasing Isanctuary jewelry, we are giving hope and dignity to the survivors. This is such a beautiful cause and I wanted to share it with all of you, I’ve linked direct links under each image of where you can purchase the jewelry, among lots of other beautiful pieces found on their website: purposejewelry.org
“Purchase with PURPOSE and join the movement to end slavery, and spread hope to women and girls around the world.”
