One of the benefits of Fair Trade is knowing that the product you are purchasing is free of slave labor and human trafficking. With that in mind, Ten Thousand Villages in Houston will be hosting a sidewalk sale on January 31 from 1-4 pm. This sale will feature Bead.2.Feed a local organization that advocates for other non-profits that equip women and their families with a sustainable wage through handmade products and jewelry. “Every bead has a story. Wear Hope.” This sale will be in honor of January being National Human Trafficking Awareness Month and will be raising awareness about International Sanctuary, www.isanctuary.org. iSanctuary employs young women rescued from human trafficking in both India and the US through the production and sale of fashion jewelry. Your purchase supports prevention, restoration and freedom.
