I'm back with another gift that gives back! The website is called Made By Survivors, and they do AMAZING things. All of the items on this website are produced by women that were either in the sexual slave trade or are at high risk of being put into sex trafficking. The proceeds go towards their wellbeing and rehabilitation. For Christmas, I both received a gift from this website and gave one. I got my sister the Kofi Wallet in green, which looks like this:
It was only $17.00, without shipping. It is made from recycled materials and is from Ghana. The quality of the wallet was surprisingly good, and my sister loved it!
Santa also brought me this Elephant Applique Handbag in red. I'm OBSESSED with elephants and think it's beautiful! The amazing thing is this bag is 10" x 12" with a zipper pocket in the front and length adjustable strap, and it only costs $12.00. It's really nice quality, too! This bag is made by high risk girls for sexual trafficking in Northern Thailand, which is one of the biggest contributors to the human slave trade.
Made By Survivors has everything from clothing to home decor to jewelry and handbags. The company says their goal is "to end slavery through economic empowerment and education" and to give the women in and at risk of being in the sex trade the "tools they need to build safe, independent, slavery-free lives." The shipping is fast, it took about a week for standard shipping, and you get confirmation emails when it has been processed, shipped and when it should have arrived. After everything these women have been through, it is an amazing way to help provide them with the lives they deserve.
Please go check out this website and the amazing things they are doing!
Much love <3
