Praying for Haiti

Praying for Haiti

Haiti — where our mission truly started — is heavy on our hearts today after a 7.2 magnitude earthquake struck the south of the island.

We have reached out to our Artisan partners in Haiti and continue to pray for the country as people are being found under fallen structures and more aftershocks are expected.

Haiti is strong — far stronger than any nation should ever have to be. But she does not need to carry the weight alone. We will share any updates or opportunities to offer support. 🇭🇹

❌ Some Stats (and more...) on Modern-Day Slavery ❌
In the words of Gary Haugen, the CEO of International Justice Mission, "Nothing happens just because we are aware of modern-day slavery, but nothing will ever happen until we are."

Here at Trades of Hope, we regularly use terms like "Empower Women out of Poverty," "Keeping Families Together," and "Fight Trafficking." These are more than words to us, this is our MISSION. And this mission is only possible because of you. ❌

❌ Because YOU take a stand, women and men have better, dignified opportunities for fair work. Not just fair, Fair Trade. (What is 'fair trade?' Glad you asked! https://www.fairtradefederation.org/what-is-fair-trade/)
❌ All you do as a partner with Trades of Hope helps women and men avoid dangerous, unfair, even horrific options to provide for themselves and their families. Options we'd never want as the only ones available to us. ❌
❌ Because when YOU shop, host and join, creativity + community flourishes in Artisan workshops in 19 countries, where hope can grow into a limitless future. ❌
❌💪 In short, when we get to work, they GET to work. ❌💪

The Zuri Crossbody bag is a multitasker. I use mine for knitting projects, quick trips to the gym, museum and sightseeing trips.

The outer side pocket is great for for easy phone access or stashing a snack. The long, wide crossbody strap and top zipper make for hands-free, yet secure, walking and shopping.

What would you use this colorful bag for?

I'll start.
