Did you know that when you buy handmade you’re making a difference? Sometimes its just a small difference in the handmade artists life, sometimes its a big difference in the lives of people who need it most. For a while now I’ve been supporting Reaching out Romania, a prominent advocacy group in the struggle against human trafficking in Romania. 25% of each sale I’ve made through Homespun Happiness has gone to make a difference in the lives of women in Romania. And its making a big difference! You can read more about this amazing group of women and how I’m trying to help .
As a blogger I am randomly introduced to the most interesting people. Sometimes its through a giveaway and sometimes it’s because I’m curious and start following people on instagram. Recently I stumbled across Jill from 99WPM, let me tell you, the woman is a total sweet heart! I can’t say I know her well… but in the past week or so she has really inspired me! Jill started Jill’s Freedom Project through the Mocha Club and wants to make a difference in the lives of 2 women that are currently at risk. The cost? $800. $800 to bring two women and their children out of bondage and into glorious freedom! I’d say that’s a small price to pay! But at the same time, I don’t have $800 lying around.
I want to make a difference, I want to help Jill!
So for the next week, July 9th to 16th, everything in the Homespun Happiness shop is 25% off. No discount needed. 25% of every sale will go to support Reaching out Romania as usual, but another 25% of every sale will be going to wards Jill’s Freedom Project! I hope you’ll do some handmade shopping and make a difference in the lives of women around the world that could really use our help!
