Dear Friends of PURPOSE Jewelry,
This year, 23,140 pieces of PURPOSE Jewelry have been created and sold worldwide. 60 young women are on the road to reintegration and recovery all because of YOU. Whether you have been with us from the beginning or recently joined us, we want to thank you for your support!
One hundred percent of proceeds from your purchase of PURPOSE Jewelry go to International Sanctuary, empowering survivors of sex trafficking to live a life of freedom and purpose. Since 2007, International Sanctuary has helped over 300 young women rebuild their lives through healthcare, counseling, employment and education opportunities. Survivors work within the social enterprise, PURPOSE Jewelry, producing handmade jewelry, managing inventory, and fulfilling orders. At International Sanctuary, we work tirelessly every day to provide hope and dignity to survivors of human trafficking.
When you purchase a beautiful piece of jewelry, your impact goes well beyond that one transaction. When you wear that necklace, bracelet, earring and/or ring you wear freedom and you wear purpose.
Your purchase not only empowers our young women to dream big, but it also helps them take steps to make dreams a reality. Their aspirations go far beyond the walls of our sanctuaries; there are dreams of marriage and starting a family, dreams of being a lawyer and building careers. Because of your support, all of those dreams have come true and new dreams are being achieved daily.
The courageous young women of iSanctuary are:
- Pursuing higher education through our Academy.
- Taking on positions of professional leadership
- Becoming teachers, bookkeepers, even studying in law school
- Getting married and having babies.
We are so grateful you chose to support survivors through PURPOSE Jewelry! You have already made an imprint on our mission, but now we invite you to take the next step to help International Sanctuary provide hope, purpose and healing to survivors.
Our vision to expand to ten sanctuaries globally by 2020 is well on its way with established sanctuaries in Mumbai, India and Orange County, California, as well as sanctuaries in Mexico, Uganda, Philippines and Cambodia in their early stages of launching! While we have made leaps and bounds to make our 2020 goals a reality, we are far from done. With your partnership, we can continue our pursuits to help bring this vision to fruition!
Please join us as we together reach young women rescued from sex trafficking on a global scale. You are not only the backbone of this organization, YOU are the vehicle to reaching young women in Uganda, Philippines, and Cambodia. The young girls and women in these countries who are trapped in the hopelessness and despair of an uncertain future are counting on us.
Nearly a decade has passed since our co-founder, Stephanie, dreamed of creating a business to help survivors of sex trafficking earn an income. The initial passion, the urgency and the angst of helping survivors of human trafficking is ever present and we would love for you to join us in partnership as we embark on this next season of purpose, freedom and hope.
Here are just a few areas of need where your support will make a monumental difference:
- $35 Jewelry Tool Kit: Sponsor a training kit for a young woman escaping trafficking.
