Get Plugged In

2012062202
People ask me all the time at events how they can help…Well here is a few ways you can plug-in. These are just a few organizations that help in the fight to end slavery. I hope that one of these will stand out to you and that you will soon become a vital part in this movement. If you are afraid to make that leap into joining a organizations {Just as I was in the beginning} you can do something as simple as pray. Pray for the people enslaved, pray for them to be saved not only from their captors but be saved in the name of Jesus. Or you can donate to one of the causes that really hit home for you. Of course I would love if you support Saving Grace but all of the organizations are doing amazing things and really making a difference. If you have any questions and about anything I have posted feel free to email us at Savinggrace28@gmail.com

Saving Grace is happy to announce the partnership with
Love Gives Way
http://lovegivesway.com/Love Gives Way is rallying the wedding community around organizations fighting sex trafficking.

Here is the reason why I decided to join with the amazing group that is helping one special day become a platform for freedom.

About Saving Grace

Buy. Wear. Share. Saving Grace is a product you can feel good about purchasing. When it was laid on my heart to create this jewelry line I wanted everything to come full circle. I wanted to help create jobs all over the world so that way different communities would be less likely to look for other ways of a income. Poverty is one of the main causes of trafficking. People look for ways to support their families and end up looking in all the wrong areas, or end up getting trapped by false promises. I purchase my beads through non-profits that make sure the people and towns they work with are being paid fair and are in good working conditions. I love creating fair-trade pieces for brides and their bridal party to reflect their style and colors. I also do metal stamping that way people can take awareness a step further and where their heart on the jewelry so to speak. I want the jewelry to tell a story of freedom. fair-trade Noun 1.Trade carried on legally. 2.Trade in which fair prices are paid to producers in developing countries Use code LOVEGIVESWAY at checkout on any item not in the category of Love Gives Way to have a portion of the proceeds to go to help LGW.

Why I Joined Love Gives Way

I want to be able to help brides tell a story of freedom with their jewelry. I want to show people that wedding jewelry can be not only beautiful but can make a difference at the same time.
