A Day of Giving

Today May 16th is designated as a day of giving.  Mercy House Global has teamed up with several organizations who work together to give women a brighter future.

“She Is Priceless” is a campaign to make a difference in the lives of oppressed women.

A pearl is a healed wound.  An oyster protects itself from irritation and suffering and the result is a priceless pearl.  The women we support have endured unthinkable suffering in their lives and often feel forgotten.  We are joining together to remind the world that every woman matters.

Fair Trade Friday Earring of the Month Club for February 2017

I have been a subscriber since day one of the Fair Trade Friday monthly box.  I love getting mail that is not all bills but also contains items that make our world a better place.  Beyond the monthly box Fair Trade Friday also offers a bracelet of the month club and an earring of the month club.

In February I also purchased the earring of the month for February.  I wanted to see what they offered and I was not disappointed!

Fair Trade Friday March 2017

I think I need to purchase a larger mailbox.  Took me a little wiggling to get my Fair Trade Friday package out of my box.

Happy Mail

Yesterday the mail box held good things.  Lately its been full of college information, bills and magazines.  This time there was only one college brochure, one magazine and my Fair Trade Friday package.

My first item is a taco cord keeper.  This will be so handy when I travel!  Between chargers and headphones I usually have some sort of mess brewing in my bag.

A perfect carry all bag for the beach this summer or the farmers market.  I love the vibrant colors and large size!   A great sunglasses case that will be handy with my new sunglasses I finally purchased myself.  And a green paper bracelet set from Mercy House that I loved so much I wore it the next day.

Also they included a discount code for the Fair Trade Friday earring of the month club if you want to give them a try.

She is Priceless!

If you read my blog from time to time you know I am a huge fan of Fair Trade Friday!  Fair Trade Friday exists to give women a hand up and  not a hand out in this world.  Fair Trade Friday grew out of Mercy House in Kenya. Mercy House exists to give young pregnant mothers a home, education and hope.  We all need hope and help from time to time!

Today I am telling you about their “She is Priceless” campaign by saying #PutOnYourPearls to support women around the world.
