The May Earring of the Month package arrived in the middle of last month, but May was full and crazy around here. Here it is the second week of June and I am just getting around to showing them off.
The reason I keep posting these monthly show and tells of the earrings are, 1. they are always beautiful and fun and 2. this monthly commitment is directly helping a woman earn an honest and dignified income.
She is likely to be able to support herself through the partnership that Fair Trade Friday has with artisans around the world. She is possibly one who has found rescue from trafficking and now can work and earn money freely.
Just a day or two after I wrote and scheduled this post, I read something by Mercy House founder, Kristen Welch. Here is a link to the piece she wrote, which is a painful example of just why I add a pair of earring to my jewely box, or gift giving box each month. Please take a moment to read Never Alone by Kristen Welch, even if it means you don’t make it back to this post.
I am a woman who enjoys wearing earrings, and I love to give them as gifts. I am so excited that I can be a part of the Earring of the Month Club, receive earrings each month, and be a small part of helping to lift a woman out of a desperate situation into one of dignity, safety and life.
