This post is the first of its kind on The Lovely Cupboard. I am sharing a cause that is very close to my heart. Like so many, when I first heard about the epidemic of human trafficking and the horrible atrocities happening to women and girls across the globe, I was stunned. I felt heart broken but also paralyzed by the weight of such a global crisis. What could I do in the face of something so terrible and so far reaching? Mindy Greaves, founder of the Fight for Them Campaign, saw the effects of human trafficking first hand while living overseas and was moved to act. She says, “I can’t do everything, but I must do something.”
Mindy founded Fight for Them which makes beautiful handcrafted jewelry. Every piece of jewelry has one “pearl of hope” as well as the initials of a victim that has been rescued out of trafficking. When jewelry is purchased, 100% of the profits go directly to three organizations working in Southeast Asia to rescue, counsel, and rehabilitate girls from the sex trade: IHH International, She Rescue Home, and Zoe.
PLEASE watch the above video…You’ll be moved. Perhaps to help out. Perhaps to pray. Perhaps to do both.
