The August box is one of my favorite boxes! We have an exciting item made by two of our local artisans – barefoot sandals! Just in time for that last beach trip this summer. These unique ‘sandals’ were made by Maria and Yaisel, two women whose lives have been richly blessed by your support.
Also featured are two items from partner organizations that are deeply invested in the restoration of refugees and trafficking survivors in the United States. The adorable canvas pouch is made by The Tote Project, which donates 20% of it’s profits to help survivors living in the US find hope and accomplish their dreams. All products from The Tote Project are made by women in India that have either left or been rescued from the sex trade.
The last item in this month’s box is a granola bar from Providence Granola, a Rhode Island based granola company that employs refugees from across the globe. All the profits from Providence Granola Project are used to fund the organizations job training program which helps newly resettled refugees prepare to enter the workforce.
What a wonderful box, I hope you guys enjoy it as much as I do!
