My novel Stranger Things releases in just a few weeks, in time for Human Trafficking Awareness Month (January). But I didn’t want to wait until then to share with you just a few of the places where you can buy gifts—not only for Christmas—made with worldwide survivors of human trafficking in mind. At these sites you’ll find beautiful products that are made by survivors and/or whose proceeds are designated for efforts to end sex-trade slavery. This year I bought cards and gifts from International Sanctuary, which employs rescued women in the United States and abroad.
International Justice Mission Holiday Gift Catalog (Today is the last day to order for Christmas shipping.)
RIJI Green (Whole Foods Market stores in Maryland, Virginia, Washington DC, Pennsylvania, Kentucky, Ohio, and New Jersey–Marlton, NJ and Princeton, NJ only—are selling RIJI Green customized “Whole Foods Market” jute totes for $18.00.)
Do you know of other stores that sell goods made by people rescued from human trafficking (or any form of slavery)? Please tell us about it in the comments section.
