Red Thread Movement.

I'm very excited to share that I am joining the Red Thread Movement! You can buy these hand crafted red bracelets through my Etsy shop, and also when I vend craft/art show. All proceeds benefit this wonderful organization.

Red Thread Movement
Whats the big deal? Read a small excerpt from their website:

"The impact of the Red Thread Movement is three-fold.  First, wearing the red braceletcreates awareness of sex trafficking [it’s happening more than we might think, with as many as 12,000 girls trafficked across the Nepal border each year].  Second, making the red bracelets provides employment for girls in Nepal who have been rescued from the hands of sex traffickers at the border.  Third, the revenue from the Red Thread Movement [each bracelet costs $3] employs not only the rescued girls but also funds the safe house that welcomes them and continues the establishment of border units.  These border units along the Nepal/India border each rescue as many as 100 girls per month from the bondage of slavery."
