Today I’m thrilled to introduce you to Drew Dotson from Trades of Hope. You all surely know by now that I love fair trade and anything that helps sustain and empower women who are living in extreme poverty and struggling to provide for their children. Well Drew feels the same way, and I’ll let her tell you about it…
I’m a compassion entrepreneur for Trades Of Hope, and I’m excited to be doing a giveaway for Lauren’s blog readers.
Trades of Hope empowers women to create sustainable businesses worldwide. We have created a missional company that rescues women from the sex trade, slums, sweatshops and extreme poverty. These women make beautiful fair-trade handcrafts, like jewelry, soap, home décor and scarves.
My favorite scarf is the Nepali Aqua scarf, available through this giveaway! “Nepal is one of the poorest countries and women are stolen and sold into the sex trade by the thousands. These artisans are being trained to own their own business. By buying these scarves you are creating a market that allows these hard working women to be entrepreneurs that can feed their families.”
As a stay at home mom I am so proud to be a part of Trades of Hope. I love sharing these stories of hope with my kids! If you would like to learn more about the company and how you can be part of their work, please visit my website and find me on facebook!
Thank you Lauren for your beautiful and inspiring blog!
