Shop for yourself or holiday gifts while supporting freedom business! These companies are dedicated to fighting the unjust, evil cycle of human trafficking and poverty. They do this not only through the means of building a sustainable business model for these at- risk, vulnerable women by training their skills and providing holistic treatment such as counseling. The work itself also provides a way towards spiritual freedom as the makers are able to express themselves where they would otherwise feel silenced, and find purpose in creating something valuable and beautiful for others. Most importantly, they can hear all about what God their Father truly thinks of them -as treasured delights of the most High. Bring your friends and family and see these hand crafted, stylish, made with freedom products for yourself while getting your Holiday shopping done early!!
