October 2017 Box | BONUS video review

Our October box includes four amazing products, two of which come from Anchor of Hope’s own artisans!

The first item is a beautiful earring set made by Marwa. Marwa is an Iraqi refugee whose strength and resilience are nothing short of remarkable. Her work with Anchor of Hope helps her provide for her family, including her sweet toddler.

Next is a loose leaf tea blended by Khadra, a refugee from Sudan who works hard to support her two young daughters. She was so excited to work on this project for us!

We have also included a tea infuser that is not refugee-made, but is a gift from us to help you enjoy your tea. To use it, simply fill the infuser with loose leaf tea and pour boiling water over it, steep for 3-5 minutes, and enjoy!

Watch our in-real-life (fun and somewhat wild-like) tea tasting below!

The third item in this month’s box is a “Children of the World” notepad from UPAVIM Crafts, an organization that helps women living in violent Guatemalan communities to overcome difficult circumstances. This adorable notepad is great for jotting down your thoughts or making lists!

The final item included is a trivet made by impoverished women in Haiti through 2nd Story Goods. For these women, making money through the selling of handmade goods is a way to keep their daughters in school. Staying in school and receiving essential education is the most effective way to keep these girls from being trafficked.

We hope that this trivet will make a colorful addition to your kitchen and remind you of the hope you provide by supporting these amazing women. We hear that they literally dance for joy when they receive an order from Anchor of Hope!

Thank you for the joy you create when you support Anchor of Hope Box. Would you consider snapping a picture and sharing your favorite item online? The more people who support Anchor of Hope, the more hope we spread to those in need. Thank you again!
