It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas...




Resilient.
     Redeemed.
          Resourceful.
               Resplendent.
                   
Survivors from around the world are being rescued, and are rescuing others. Counseling, healing, education, training, untainted love and affection, and entrepreneurial skills are being provided for them.

Made by Survivors and other organizations then sell the products made by these survivors, with 100% of the money going back to rescue efforts, and fair prices for the products.
Christmas is two months away. This year, make your Christmas shopping pull double duty. Have each purchase send money directly back to help fight human trafficking. Lush silk scarves, glittering necklaces, dangling earrings, exotic bracelets, purses, bags, t-shirts, and more. These gifts will not only delight your family and friends but will fight human trafficking. Join me in this, will you?

Today's Tangible Way to Fight Human Trafficking
  • Christmas shop and fight human trafficking at the same time. Visit MadebySurvivors.com.
  • Host your own party through Made by Survivors or Women at Risk International to raise awareness and money to fight human trafficking. (If you live near me, watch for details of my Open House/Party to do some Christmas shopping and fight human trafficking TBA.)

Last chance for a Book Give-away: Win an autographed copy of Kimberly Rae's book "Stolen Woman..." Winners will be announced on Friday.  Each action enters your name anew.
  • Leave a comment here on my site
  • Pray with me here (on the comments) for strength, resources and energy for the people to fight this, or
  • Share this on your facebook page by clicking the "fb" button below (and let me know you did). Let's raise awareness.  

Hi, I'd love to hear from you. This has been a heavy topic, huh? This is the last in this three-post series. What emotions does this topic bring to mind for you? How are you this week? What have you been learning about or reading lately? How can I pray for you this week?

Hi Jennifer,
Love your series. Dear friends of ours moved to south Asia (I can't say where) to work with Intl. Justice Mission. He is on staff in their operations. She is on staff working with those rescued from slavery.

For the past few years, our family has opted to forgo buying gifts for each other and bought gifts from catalogs from World Vision or Touch The World. Now we have another to add to our shopping list!
Blessings,
Susan

Hi again Jennifer.
Yes I clicked on every link and watched every clip. And I shared them with my 2 kids as well. Both are very active in social justice issues. My son just arranged for Invisible Children to come to his college next month.

Thanks for sharing on these issues. So compelling. Now that we have seen, we are responsible.
Susan
